Back at the beginning of October we held our first Banana Crumb-Ball where we were giving all monies raised to the Southend Cystic Fibrosis Association. We all had an absolutely fabulous evening and were so proud to have raised £4808.35 to give to the SCFA.
We wanted to wait until we had all of the monies back from all different things on the evening and are really pleased to have been able to hand the money over to Lisa Hyde of the SCFA and her daughter Sophia, who has Cystic Fibrosis.
Sophia has been featured in our articles and is truly inspirational. She runs, swims, dances, cycles and in fact does absolutely everything with such determination, including chat about Harry Potter. I think Matt met his match on the Harry Potter knowledge front!!! We had such a great evening back in October and to be able to hand the money over and to hear about the real difference it will make to people made all the hard work worthwhile.
Will we run another one – watch this space?
None of this would have been possible without the help of all the people who gave money, bought raffle tickets, came along on the evening, donated raffle and auction prizes. It really was a great team effort and one that hopefully has made a big difference to so many people.
