Local fundraising can get national coverage!
BBC Radio 2 Presenter Scott Mills gave a shout out and thanked local fundraiser Christine Gow who made over 250 cream teas for friends and family raising over £3,500 for children’s charity Mothershare.
This year Christine decided to raise money for Mothershare who provide vulnerable children and families in Calderdale with things they need such as essentials, cots, blankets, bottles, prams, clothes, underwear and nappies.
Understanding that the economy has hit people in their pockets, Christine decided to also hold a raffle. She explained, “Times are tough for people but I also wanted to raise as much money as possible for a charity who is in demand to help families now more than ever so I thought a raffle would provide an extra way to raise funds. I am extremely grateful to all the businesses who provided a prize and to all my friends and family for donating money.”
