Fundraising Update

Our fundraising day is drawing ever closer and already an amazing amount of money has been raised. Over the last few weeks we have broken the £800 mark and the £1000 target is well within our sights.  I'm a bit gobsmacked really.  When we first started planning Anabelle's Angel Day I remember me and a friend umming and ahhing over what target to set ourselves. We discussed £250 and then maybe pushing it to £500 and then I thought; you know what - let's go all out, be ambitious, aim high and go for a £1000! The generosity of everyone who has contributed to get us so near to that £1000 is absolutely incredible. 

What amazes me even more is that we haven't actually done anything yet. 

Ok we've sat around, planned, discussed and made things to sell on the stalls, but the actual sponsored walk and Anabelle's birthday fete is still over a month away.  

I am more than confident we will smash that £1000 target and sending a whopping contribution to Sands, the stillbirth and neonatal death charty in Anabelle's name.  I'm really quite excited and looking forward to be able to post the final total at the end of June! 

I just hope we get loads of people through the doors now and it isn't a flop! So shamelessly I once again plug our fundraising event on Saturday 25th June 2011 at Ponthir Village Hall near Cwmbran between 12 and 3.  £1 entry including tea/coffee/squash and a biscuit.  And if you haven't already done so; please donate what you can on Anabelle's justgiving page.    Every little really is a big help. 

Sands is a national charity, establish by bereaved parents in 1981. 

We have 3 core aims which are to: 
  • Support anyone affected by the death of a baby.
  • To work in partnership with health professionals to improve the quality of care and services offered to bereaved families.
  • To promote research and changes in practice that could help to reduce the loss of babies' lives.

I so wish I could come and actually support you in person on the day. I'm sure you'll have an excellent day and raise huge amounts (far more than you ever dreamed off) in honour of Anabelle. xx
