Bringing the World of Metal Detecting Together

Charities

We have raised a fantastic £11,450 for the charities!


This will be split between the 2 charities we were supporting, Asthma UK and The Lullaby Trust. Thank you to everyone who brought raffle tickets, donated prizes, rode the Rodeo Bull and gave generously to help these two causes.


We also have had some additional machines donated by some of the traders so we will be selling these on and donating the proceeds to the charities so the final figure will go up even more, thank you very much to these traders.


One of our chosen charities this year is Asthma UK.
In 2014 my Daughter had a severe asthma attack which very nearly took her life, she stopped breathing and spent several weeks on a life support machine at the John Radcliffe hospital in Oxford. It took something as serious as this to make not only my daughter but all of us far more aware of the dangers and risks associated with being a sufferer of asthma. 

It is for this reason we have decided to this year support Asthma UK as one of our charities, as we would very much like to see more education and awareness surrounding asthma, more research, more information, and to provide support to those who suffer from asthma and their families. With hope that one day a cure will be found.

Our other chosen charity this year is The Lullaby Trust.

We have decided to also give help and support to the Lullaby Trust as part of our close family have in the past had to deal with the loss of a baby due to S.I.D.S. The Lullaby Trust provides specialist support for bereaved families and anyone affected by a sudden infant death.

We want to raise as much as possible so the trust can continue to provide as much help and support to parents and families.
