Putting the ‘FUN’ in FUNdraising

After years of supporting local charities and an accumulative total of over £30,000 raised, this year Christine decided to help St Michael’s for a second time, having raised £5,000 from a skydive four years ago. In January, deep snow and a few Friday night drinks inspired Christine to rally friends and family to build a snowman in Corn Square, Leominster. Well-wishers got the fundraising started by filling collecting buckets. Christine’s merry band have also organised a masquerade ball with entertainment provided by ten local singers, and have brought back memories of the 1990’s with their version of a Jailbreak. A highlight of the year was a bed-push around the streets of Leominster. Local vicar Mark Townsend dressed as an expectant mother and surrounded by a cast of hospital workers. The single divan brought laughter to hundreds of onlookers on its mile and a half journey. Christine said, ‘I love fundraising, and when you do something for charity you have to try and think about things that somebody else hasn’t done. But without all the beautiful people who have helped me, I wouldn’t have been able to raise such a large sum.’ Everyone at St Michael’s would like to give a massive heartfelt thank you to Christine and all of her friends and family who have supported her marathon year of fundraising.
