Fundraising Update

posted in: DIPG, Events, Fundraising, News

We are delighted to announce three bits of good fundraising news ahead of our Join Us In June campaign.

pandK Social Work Adult Care Social Committee May14Last 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.

Support for holiday

posted in: DIPG, Fundraising, News

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 …..
