Update on ‘third’ half of Join Us In June – Mirren’s pool party raised £70; £90 from Sweetnam’s Common Riding Breakfast; and a fantastic £220 from Hannah’s Garden Party. That takes grand total to £6,441 – thanks everyone!
We received an email last week from Dad of a wee girl with a DIPG – thanking us for the money that will allow them to go on a special holiday. This is the difference that your fundraising makes – thank you.
£602 – Christine’s Ladies Lunch raised
£305 – coffee morning organised by Mandy & Jane
£543 – Beetle Drive run by Morag & Claire
£140 – Alix & Iona car boot sale
£380 – Posh Pies
£220 – Jude & the girls held a coffee morning
£110 – Rachel’s walk
£100 – McGraw’s donation
£170 – Mo’s party
And there is still a ‘third half’ – there is still some money to come in and we know of at least two more planned events.
This is great news, especially when you think that a lot of this has been gift aided as well.
The running total has already reached £2,941!
And there is more to come in the second half! Thanks to everyone who has helped so far.no comments

All Riders Take Part At Their Own Risk
We are delighted to announce three bits of good fundraising news ahead of our Join Us In June campaign.
Last week we received confirmation that 16th Annual Social Work Quiz in Perth raised £750 for Katie’s Trust (plus £750 for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research). Thanks to Dave McPhee for organising the quiz, the teams who competed on the night and Charlie for thinking of Katie’s Trust.
Tonight we heard that the Knowepark Primary sponsored walk had also raised £1500, half of which is being donated to Katie’s Trust. Thanks to all of the teachers and parents who organised the trek, and to all of the children who put their best foot forward!
Also tonight we learned that young Hannah raised £20 selling her homemade bookmarks and pictures – thanks very much! Hannah is also organising a garden party for her pals as part of Join us In June, and has her mum running about making the necessary arrangements!!
Thanks to everyone who continues to support the Trust and the great work it is doing to support children with a DIPG.no comments
