A big THANK YOU to Claire who donated £270 to us this week. Claire told us a bit about how and why she raised the funds to support our work in the community:

“I love to bake and always make Christmas related bakes. Last year, lockdown was taking its toll, I wanted to keep busy and knew my truffles were well liked by friends and family so decided to make extras and ask for donations for charity. I was blown away when I raised £270!

Didn’t think I would need to make over 300 truffles though – that was a challenge turning them around in less than 2 weeks!

I know the last year has been tough for a lot of families, especially with so many people being furloughed/losing work so wanted to do my bit for a local charity to help even a few people over the next little while. I see the work this charity does through my school friend Gillian (who is on the Board of Trustees) and knew any donation would really help!”

Thank you for all you hard work and to everyone who bought the truffles – you are all awesome! 🙂
