Fun and Fantastic fundraising.

Charity update; now £60,860. Wow!!

Last year 2017 was a fantastic year in every way.

I’ve sent a cheque for £1100 from the another Christmas Wreath-making Workshop to Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance. It’s become an annual community event, 60 ladies came along, well done everyone and thank you for taking part.  Since the first workshop in 2009 the Xmas wreaths have raised over £9000 for charity…..that’s a lot of wreaths!!  

 

It all started in 2008 with The Highway Farm KISS Cook Book, ‘keep it so simple’ cooking-style, which was inspired by my lovely B&B Guests, they chivvied me along!! All the proceeds from the Kiss Cook Book go to Charity – to Cancer Research UK and to projects in Malawi.

And we’ve been busy raising money for other Cancer Charities too..
Breakthrough, Prostate Cancer, the Dorchester Hospital scanner appeal, Dorset Weldmar Hospice, Great Ormond St Hospital, local charities and The Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance too……and having lots of fun along the way!!

Some fund-raising history and ideas …..our Bra-ed Wire Fence caused lots of amusement during Dorset Arts Week, the Kiss Ball was just amazing and raised over £11K, we’ve held 5 Big Breakfasts and 2 Father’s Day Brunches, plus Village Do’s, annual Christmas Wreath-making Workshops, Plant Sale, hilarious Pig Race Night and together with friends we’ve Baked it Better for the children in the UK and Malawi (see newsletter link below).

We thank everyone involved for their kindness and generosity, it is amazing how things can spiral and grow, with a little help from your friends!!   Pauline
