Steve Hayden, of Hayden’s Bar, Pomeroy, organises an annual vintage tractor rally on the Sunday of the first May Bank Holiday, with proceeds from entries going to charity. Steve heard about Katie’s Trust through one of his friends and asked if he could donate the money from the 2013 Rally to the Trust. The weekend was a great success and raised £2,210, plus a further £15 that came in from the ice-cream van! Many thanks to Steve, all the tractor drivers and all their supporters.no comments

We were delighted to receive a cheque for £1,020 from the Caledonian Society of Sheffield. Ian McMaster was the President for the last year and decided that Katie’s Trust would be one of two charities to benefit from the proceeds of the St. Andrew’s Dinner and the Burns Supper. The total raised this year was the highest ever – many thanks to all the Scots & Yorkshire folks who delved deep into their pockets.no comments
Madeline from Scone decided to have a collection for Katie’s Trust at her 9th Birthday – the result was a fantastic £79! Madeline is in the same class as Cammie, Katie’s cousin. Many thanks to all who contributed – hope you had a great party.no comments
