Fund Raising Events - 2008
On 19th September 2008, A Euchre Drive and Auction was held at The Three Tuns Pub in St Keverne, in aid of The Adam George Fund. Thanks to the hard work put in by organisers Rachael, John and Sharon Stephens, and the generosity of all who took part, the event raised a staggering £1,312. There was reportedly much goading going on during the auction, to the extent that at one point a multi-pack of crisps was sold for £10.00. We are very grateful to everyone who was involved.
Adam’s Godmother, Heidi, organised a sponsored Aerobathon on 20th September 2008 in Redruth to raise money for Adam’s Fund. Twenty two people took part in the event which was held at the Body & Soul Gym in Fore Street, Redruth. Pictured below are the participants, together with Adam (sucking his thumb as usual) and members of his family.
The event lasted two hours and everyone made it through to the end. So far, over £2,000 has been raised and more is being collected all the time.
We would like to thank Heidi for her organisational skills, Chris and Stella at Body & Soul for their generosity and hard work, everyone who took part for their time and energy and of course everyone who sponsored the participants.
In November 2008, Adam's paternal grandparents, Pam and Richard Best of Indian Queens, held a very successful bingo evening which raised over £1,300. Their hard work was greatly appreciated by everyone. Several people asked when they'd be doing it again.
Adam's Great Aunt, Patricia Searle of Redruth, raised pounds by shedding pounds - she raised £280 from a sponsored slim. Thank you Pat. You look great by the way.
Adam's big brother William wrote a letter to the headmaster of his school (Trewirgie Junior School in Redruth) asking if the school could hold fund-raising activities. Subsequently the school gave a total of nearly £700 to the fund from various events, including a donation of £300 from the proceeds of its popular Christmas Carol Concert.
