Charities' support at our Easter 2017 Holiday

This Easter a grand total of £810 was raised by the seventy four members of the holiday. Four main charities were suggested in addition to two fun activities and our regular contributions to The Neme Tree Trust. Details are listed below.
AWARE

Lizzie Barrow suggested “Aware”, a Northern Ireland based charity which raises money for young people affected by depression. Lizzie is a student representative, from her University, and in May she is abseiling to raise money for the charity. £160 was donated. Aware Website

PANCREATIC CANCER UK

This charity was suggested by Poppy Potts in memory of the mother of a friend of hers. Pancreatic Cancer is “tough, tough to research, tough to diagnose and tough to treat” so says their literature. The £160 we raised will be well-used. Pancreatic Cancer Website

ST ELIZABETH HOSPICE

St Elizabeth Hospice, Ipswich was recommended by Charlotte Young as a thank you for the treatment received by her grandmother. The hospice cares for some 2000 people locally and is reliant on voluntary contributions to help meet its £9.1 million running costs. We raised £160. St Elizabeth Hospice Website

MELANOMA FOCUS

Melanoma Focus aims to educate and raise awareness of the dangers of skin cancer. Sam Hames had his hair shaved off at school to raise money for the charity and suggested it for an Oakley Charity. We raised £160. Melanoma Focus Website

AND FINALLY!

We raised no money, we donated no funds but we invested time in the future by dead-heading the daffodils at Bilton Grange. It took 10 minutes but will produce dividends with many, many more daffodils next spring!
