The year 2020 was one we all wish we could forget but many of our Supporters celebrated milestone birthdays. Karen Hill is one such lady, she turned 40 at the very end of last year. Karen asked her friends and family in lieu of a gift to make a donation to our fundraising page so we can continue to help the children of West Lothian who need us. Karen said:
“I know how difficult it is in the current climate to fundraise and with more people than ever needing your help I’m so happy I can do something to help. Having 2 primary age children myself and knowing their needs for the school year it is easy to see why the service you provide is so important to the community. It’s heart breaking to hear stories of parents choosing between eating and providing winter clothes for their kids. It just shows what a difference a donation can make.”
“I was blown away by the generosity of friends and family towards this fundraiser. I had set out to raise £150 and with gift aid raised a grand total of £503. Thank you for all the hard work you guys do. By sharing my story, hopefully it might encourage others to think of doing the same.”
Thank you to Karen and all her lovely friends and family. It’s a truly wonderful among donated and it will make a huge difference to so many local children. Happy birthday Karen!
