At the 2017 event we raised a fantastic £11,450 for the charities! This was split between the 2 charities we were supporting, Asthma UK and The Lullaby Trust.
In 2018 we will be supporting another 2 charities; Helen & Douglas House and Thomley.
These charities were chosen from the large amount of suggestions we received from our members and social media followers, online and by email. We chose these two as they were mentioned several times and are charities that will benefit greatly from any funds received.
PLEASE HELP US SUPPORT THESE CHARITIES BY BUYING RAFFLE TICKETS AT THE EVENT AND PROVIDING DONATIONS.
Helen & Douglas House helps families cope with the challenges of looking after a terminally ill baby, child or young adult who will die prematurely.
It is a special place that feels like home from home, where families can make the most of their time together and create happy memories during their children’s short lives. When a child dies, we are there to support the whole family at this really tragic time.
Thomley is a place to play, have fun, socialise and learn to live. We welcome disabled people of all ages from babies to adults, and their families, carers or friends. We support people at any stage of their diagnostic journey, whatever their additional needs.
Thomley offers regular days for disabled and non-disabled visitors. We also open for preschool children, adults, schools, respite groups and the wider community when any family can join us to enjoy our facilities.
