A HUGE THANK YOU
to Joan Oliver for spending time organising a raffle & managing to raise £235 for GoPI3Ks
A BIG THANK YOU
Goes to Mr & Mrs Reid, the family of Mandy Powell (a GoPI3Ks member) who instead of asking for presents for the big 80, people donated raffle prizes & the money was given to GoPI3Ks
In February 2019 I (Mandy) decided to run a fundraiser for my birthday. So instead of receiving gifts, I raffled two £20 Vue cinema vouchers & asked people to donate to GoPI3Ks the charity. This was done via social media & word of mouth. A fabulous amount of £720 was raised & 2 happy people enjoyed their cinema visit.
Also in February we received
an extremely generous
donation of £450
from Sue Rowlands
In May I was lucky enough to be invited by my friend Rachel Toner who runs P.R Music Tuition to attend the Darwen Live music festival. Here her students spent an afternoon performing various songs. I was able to have the chance to address the audience to tell them about PROS & GoPI3Ks, also to be able to hand out GoPI3Ks leaflets. We were also able to raise a wonderful £136.11 for GoPI3
In May we ran an online auction to
sell some items that had been
kindly donated from one of
Madonna’s tours. We had a tour
hoodie & a tour cap. We raised
£51.99 for these two items.
Following a grant application
to St James’ Place (thanks
to Kerry Hockaday for
the introduction) GoPI3Ks
were given a grant for £1,000.
