Suggestions for other charitable events for 2020 are very welcome so please get in touch with Laura Shattock if you have an idea.
We will continue to support Essex Air Ambulance with their collection tins on site and hopefully at least one event for them this year but if you have another charity you’d like to support, or event idea do please let Laura know.
Total amount raised for charity in 2019
In total we raised over £900. This was made up as follows:
Comic Relief Cake Sale
Comic Relief is about having fun and making the world a better place. The organisation raises money and then uses it to help end poverty and unfairness. It works in the UK and also in the poorest countries in the world.
Essex Air Ambulance Raffle
Each of Essex & Herts Air Ambulance’s (EHAAT) critical care team consists of a pilot and co-pilot, a pre-hospital care doctor and a critical care paramedic, who can be rushed to the scene of an incident with life-saving support equipment to deliver advanced clinical care that is normally only found in the hospital emergency department.
Once stabilised, the patient will be conveyed by air or land to the most appropriate hospital for their needs. Each year EHAAT makes around 1,500 life-saving missions.
Your continued support will help to save the lives of those most in need across Essex, Hertfordshire and surrounding areas. Each EHAAT mission costs around £2,200 and is almost entirely funded by donations, as we do not receive regular direct funding from the Government.
Macmillan Cake Sale and Baking Competition
Macmillan Cancer Support is one of the largest British charities and provides specialist health care, information and financial support to people affected by cancer. It also looks at the social, emotional and practical impact cancer can have, and campaigns for better cancer care. Macmillan Cancer Support’s goal is to reach and improve the lives of everyone living with cancer in the UK.
