On the 26th of June some of ther shops and businesses around Clitheroe are holding a ‘Help For Heros’ fund raising event. I will have a collection bucket on the stall and any money donated will go towards this appeal. If by any miracle I’m in the shop I’ll arrange additional activities. If you would like to support this worthy fund there will be lots of collection buckets around town. If you want to get involved visit Susan Street the manageress at M & Co who is coordinating the fund raising.
I’ve just watched a documentary on NOMA victims in Ethiopia and the charity ‘Facing Africa’ who arrange for plastic surgeons and medical teams who volunteer their time to help the victims of this terrible disease. I was really touched by the children in the documentary and I’d like to arrange some fund raising such as a coffee morning when I get into the shop to raise funds for the charity. The documentary is still on I player if anyone wants to see it. The documentary does show some serious cases of this disfiguring disease and operations so take care if you are sensitive.
Any fundraising ideas will be greatly appreciated.
