Well, it may seem like things have been sort of quiet over the last few weeks but here’s an update of what has been going on.
We deposited the money made at the Chilli and Quiz night with the Disasters Emergency Committee relief fund for the Philippines a few weeks ago. We did it via our own bank account so that Gift Aid could be claimed on the donation – so in total £1277.45 was the final figure for that evening’s fundraising. Thanks again to all those who attended and contributed to the running of it… I think you’ll all agree that it was a worthwhile event that will hopefully help in a small way to get people’s lives back together.
We were back at school this Friday just gone for the PTA’s Christmas Fair. We had several kind people making Christmas cards and “Magic Reindeer Food” for us to sell there and Holly’s Footprint came away with £149. So a big thank you to Marion Taylor and Claire Robb and her girls for all their generous help and encouragement to get on and do it when we thought we might let it slide. The stall was manned for most of the evening by Samuel Soles, Ben Hodgson and Luke Swainson who all did a great job… thank you boys. Later on Holly’s friends took over so thank you to Caity, Ella, Laura, Lois and Robyn 🙂
We need to also thank Hayfield Primary School PTA for their generous help and of course to everyone who came along to the event.
All the cards were hand made in Hayfield for Holly’s Footprint – there are a few left if anyone hasn’t bought their Christmas cards yet… drop us an email – firstname.lastname@example.org
