Last week John and Patsy attended the Mayor of Thatcham's civic reception and were presented with a cheque for £1,617.50! Ellen Crumly, (Mayor of Thatcham) has raised this over her past year via raffles, donations and at events - this amount will also be match funded by The Good Exchange! A massive thank you to the Mayor for choosing our charity for one of her charities of the year and also to everyone who donated.
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.
John and Patsy were invited to the Thatcham Mayor making ceremony on Sunday.
Ellen Crumbly was voted in as the Mayor for a second year. Each year the Mayor chooses two charities as her charities for the year. All fund raising events she attends over the year and the money raised at these events is shared between her two charities at the end of the year.
We are very lucky and happy to say that Ellen has chosen our charity to be one of her charities of this year....
