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
Just been able to send a boy with Diffuse Pontine Glioma on holiday to see his extended family. This sort of response is only possible as a result of the funds you have helped us raise. Are you able to help us raise some more through our Join Us In June initiative? We are hoping lots of you will be able to host your own event – friends over for coffee, a lunch, a dinner party, BBQ, etc – and collect some donations at the end. We will provide you with an event pack to help accessorise your event and explain what Katie’s Trust does. Look forward to hearing from you …..no comments
Starting to get enquiries from people about Join Us In June events and what to do next. If you are thinking about holding an event then all you need to do is to message us on Facebook or drop us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone us on 01750 52387 – telling us your name, address, telephone number and number of guests at your event (so we can make up your event pack). Look forward to hearing from you soon.no comments
Who would have thought that Willie and Andrew would have won a style award?!? But that is exactly what they managed to do whilst covering the 100 miles on the Pro route of the Scottish Tour Ride in September. The trophy was sponsored by Rudy Project accessories and is awarded at the finish line for the team in the most eye-catching cycle wear. It gave Andrew a chance to explain what Katie’s Trust is doing to help patients with a DIPG – many thanks to the cyclist who gave us £25 on the back of that interview. Andrew and Willie now need to work out a rota for having the trophy on their mantelpieces! Well done guys!!

Last weekend Granny, Grandpa, cousin Cammie and the Baldy Bikers (aka Johnny & Dave) rode the forty seven miles from Glasgow Green to Murrayfield. It was a great effort and helped raised £1500+ for Katie’s Trust – more than covers the money we paid out last week to help a family go on holiday with their daughter. Thanks very much to all of you, it was a fantastic achievement. Here are some photos for the timebeing – the Baldy Bikers might overcome their modesty and post some too!!
