We were at Cheryl and Fred's private steam event on Monday, where we served refreshments and homemade cakes to around 60 people. It was a lovely evening with some lovely generous people.
We would like to thank everyone who baked and donated cakes for us to serve at the event, in return we received donations for our charity of £153.
We were at the Holybrook Fete on Sunday...it was a lovely day and on our soft toy tom-bola we managed to make a great £186. Thanks to everyone who came to see us there and to everyone who donated and took part in our tom-bola.
We were at Thatcham fun day this weekend, where were received a cheque from Karmal - the chair of the Rotary club - for an amazing £1,000...this will go towards getting our second house up and running even sooner and helping us to support more homeless young people and care leavers in West Berkshire. The Mayor of Thatcham, Ellen Crumbly was also there and we are one of her charities of the year for 2017.
We were at Hampstead Marshall summer Market on the 10th, we had our advertising boards with us and we also did a tombola...it was a lovely day for raising awareness of our charity.
John and Patsy were at the Windsor Great Park fun day on Sunday. It was a great day, the weather was good, they made some good contacts and it was great for raising awareness for the charity.
We were at Crafty Craft on Monday 1st and we managed to raise £168 from our tom-bola stall... A massive thank you to everyone who helped out on the day and to everyone who supported us as well.
We raised an amazing £1,062.63 this weekend at Waitrose. All the money we raised will go towards housing the 22 year old homeless young man who we are fundraising for.
In the pictures above are just some of the lovely people who donated. Mr Isaacson with a cheque for £50 and Mr and Mrs Taylor who gave a cheque for £500.
We want to say massive thank you to everyone who came and donated at the weekend. The young man who we are raising the money to support, was in tears when he heard how people cared enough to give money. He didn't think anyone would give anything.
We are going to be at Waitrose in Newbury on Saturday and Sunday this weekend. John and Patsy will be there with our collection buckets and leaflets on the charity, which show what we offer to the young people we support.
All money we collect will go directly to supporting and housing a 22 year old young man who we are fundraising for. He is currently homeless and living rough in a tent, and has been for over 10 months now.
Come see us to have a chat, donate or just see how we are getting on.
