We have had such a diverse range of events and fundraising activities going on during May, it has been fantastic.
We started of the month gently with The Barn Theatre Welwyn, putting on a fundraising preview of the play ‘Kindertransport’.
So far the event has raised £1618 via the raffle and we are awaiting news on the amount still to come from ticket sales.
5 Rings Group, one of our corporate partners, held their annual ‘ 3 Club Golf Day’ at Mid Herts Golf Club. Golfers from businesses across Hertfordshire and the South East enjoyed excellent playing conditions and an amazing £2,640 was raised from the event.
The climax of the month was our annual skydive. Six brave Home-Start supporters took to the skies to jump out of a plane from 10,000 feet! So far they have collectively raised over £2000 and money is still flying in. We would like to extend a massive thank you to those who took part – two of whom already want to do it again next year!
Several community organisations also supported us; The Mission Giving Team at St Albans Cathedral made a very generous donation of £1000 to help us support a family and Waitrose in Hitchin donated £270 from their Community Matters program (green chip scheme).
