Follow in our Footsteps: Community and Charity activity November 2021
As we enter December and the season of giving, we look back at some of our fundraising efforts from November. It’s so important that we help the children become incredible and valuable people in their communities and the importance of h
elping others. We were so proud of all their efforts and the support of amazing families.
At Farnborough we supported a very personal cause. Even writing this brings tears to our eyes as we say a huge thank you all for your support and generosity. We held a cake sale and raised a gigantic £360 for Jackson’s older brother Connor and his family as he sadly battles muscular dystrophy at Jack’s Place Hospice.
We cannot tell you how emotional and grateful this has made us at Footsteps. We
presented the donation to the family and know it will have a massive impact during a traumatic time. We would also like to thank local company, Amtech Electrical. Big thanks to Alan Frost, the Director of Amtech for his generous donation towards our total.
We are truly touched by everyone’s support and we hope you all enjoyed your cakes.
The family have now raised a huge £9,000. If you would like to donate please visit https://gofund.me/a006edba
Children in Need
Children across our Footsteps family got their fundraising hats on and came up with lots of ways to support Children in Need 2021.
Oving raised £50 from their Muddy Gruffalo Adventures. We donned our wellies and coats and went look
ing outside for all the creatures from one of our favourite stories. We found fox, owl, snake, mouse and of course the Gruffalo himself. We also found lots of other natural treasures hidden amongst the trees on our Autumn walk to the deep dark wood.
Watermead raised money with a day of fancy dress and a very special teddy bears picnic. Maple Cross not only raised lots of money but also saved parents lots of time in the morning as they had a pyjama day. We loved seeing all the different pyjamas and dressing gowns and the children enjoyed lots of Pudsey related activities. Chalfont St Peter chose to show their support by wearing spots or stripes and had a great time with lots of themed arts, crafts and baking.
We look forward to lots more fundraising this December. In a month where the focus is on what the children might receive we love to balance this with some festive spirit of giving too.
Chalfont St Peter will be dressing as Elves on the 3rd December to raise money for the Alzheimers Society and Christmas Jumper day for Save The Children will be celebrated by Footsteps on Friday 10th December. In a month where the focus is on what the children might receive we love to balance this with some festive spirit of giving too.
We couldn’t help all of these causes without the amazing efforts of our team to organise the fundraising and of course all of our families for their generous donations. So thank you!
