Thank you

A great example of charity matching at work. Emma Bird held a fundraiser at Scottish Widows and raised an amazing £310. Her work matched it and doubled the money to £620 for SANDS Lothians. Thank you so much Emma and Scottish Widows. Remember and ask your employer if they charity match which might encourage you to put together a cake bake or coffee morning for us? Great way of raising funds with little effort and the bonus of eating cake!!
A big thank you also to students at St Augustine's RC High School who held a recent fundraiser and raised £60.
Another big thank you shout out to Ellen Quinn who you might remember made our lovely Easter bunnies and was selling them to raise money for us. Delighted to say the bunnies raised an incredible £433.
Thank you all so much - your support is invaluable x
