2014 / 2015 News

During 2014 we raised £ 3871.45 which is half as much again as we made in 2013 which was £ 2 556.79. Thank you to all who donated towards the projects we assisted with during the year. It would be amazing if we could achieve a similar increase again this year, keep an eye on the thermometer on the right of the home page to see how we are doing.

The WizEar Trust joined us as a beneficiary as did Pathways Autism Trust, St Catherine’s and Jairos Jiri Southerton Branch. We welcome them to the ‘team’

The major fund raising done was through sporting events undertaken by 3 individuals – a marathon in Brighton, a bicycle ride in Zimbabwe and a climb up Mont Blanc in France. We thank these individuals for their commitment to ‘Friends’ and to all who generously donated to us during the year.

The projects assisted with were for The Wizear Trust, St Catherine’s, Pari Volunteers, The Autism Organisation, and Jairos Jiri.

This year, a company in London has held a charity day and gave us the proceeds (£207.54) and a further £100 was added by an individual in the company. This will go towards one of the projects on the go right now. Further news and pictures to follow when this is done. Get together with your colleagues at work and see if you can better this drive and donation.
