The fundraising event is over, and we raised just over £6,500. We presented the cheque at a cheese and wine evening at the church at the end of April. It was a great evening, attended by staff from Get Kids Going and a young athlete. The previous weekend this young man had successfully completed the wheelchair London Marathon.
£6,500 is enough to buy a specialist sports wheelchair and fund training costs for about a year.
We are delighted with this result, particularly as it he money was raised not only by church members but also by members of the various organisations that use the church premises. It was great to work with them and we’d like to express our thanks to them and to all who helped us reach this magnificent total.
