It’s been a week now since we held our charity night in order to raise the funds to allow Jack and his brothers to take part in the bike ride from London to Paris to raise funds for the CF trust!
Our aim was to raise £4680, £1560 per person and we did that and more! Jacks work are kindly doubling the total raised for the bike ride, and so our total so far comes in at over £11,000!
we raised so much more than expected, and so we have kept a little aside in order to buy the cf team at the leicester royal infirmary some new bits of equipment which right now will benefit Stanley directly as well as other children in Leicester with cystic fibrosis, we hope people don’t mind this! We plan to do more fundraisers this year and the money will all go into just giving to add to our total funds to go towards he work the cf trust will be doing into find new treatmeants and ultimately a cure! 💛
We would just like to say a few thank you’s…
Thank you to all who helped set up for the night, both sets of parents and brothers and sisters that all came together to set up the room, arrange flowers and gifts, helped blow up balloons and rearrange tables, baked cakes made sweetcones and keyrings it was a big help!
To Michelle who went out of her way, made beautiful bouquets of flowers, spent hours making the balloon arch for the night, donated table covers and made cakes and then spent the night face painting! and Lesley who helped in selling cakes and sweets on the night and went on to raise £85.
