Breakfast, tea, coffee and a cheque!!

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.


Anyone for tea?

On Saturday 9th February, Banana Crumble hosted an afternoon tea where they handed over their Cheque for £5000 which was the money raised last year for The Cystic Fibrosis Trust and also to add more funds and to help raise money for their 2019 total. The event was attended by 30 family and friends as well as Jess Nickless from the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

Finger sandwiches and cakes were consumed by everyone a plenty with cups of tea, coffee and glasses of prosecco to wash down all of the food.

On the day we handed over the money Banana Crumble raised in its first year for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust which was totalled at £5000. The money was raised by our own fund-raising events, unclaimed prizes and donations by some of our winners and other organisations, including the Southend Round Table who kindly donated £500. Our Chief Banana and Jess both said some words on the day thanking everyone for attending as well as Asda who helped the event by donating scones and clotted cream for the day. Jess told everyone that the £5000 could cover the CF Trust’s telephone helpline for over a month and what a huge difference this amount of money would make and how grateful they were to Banana Crumble for making such a large donation.

The afternoon ended up raising an additional £310 for the Trust which will go towards our total raised this year..

A huge thank you to everyone who attended the day, to the CF Trust, Asda and all those who helped with cakes and making the afternoon such great fun.

Thank you Eagles Badminton Club!!

Friday June 22nd was The Cystic Fibrosis Trust “Wear Yellow Day”. This was the same day as The Eagles Badminton Club based in Hornchurch, Essex had their annual prize presentation. A donation box was put by the refreshments and £55 was raised by those attending. They have given us this money to add to our total for The Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

A huge thank you on behalf of Banana Crumble and The Cystic Fibrosis Trust to all the Eagles members for raising this money. This means that we have met our next big milestone. £4000!! for The Cystic Fibrosis Trust


Great News and a huge thank you …..

A few weeks ago, our very own Chief Banana was invited along to a meeting at the Southend Round Table where he met their Chairman, Matt Pinnock and other members from the Round Table.

After presenting his case about Banana Crumble and how we were trying to help raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, Matt was given the great news that The Southend Branch were going to be donating £500 to our monies raised. This huge amount will now take our total raised to just under the £3000 mark which is absolutely brilliant and we do hope that these funds can go along way to help with treatment and finding a cure to CF.

From Banana Crumble we would all like to say a huge thank you on behalf of The Cystic Fibrosis Trust for your donation.
