Richard and Pam Best’s semi-annual Bingo evenings are now a well-established fixture at Indian Queens Working Men’s Club and this year raised around £2,000 for the Fund. Many thanks to all the participants.
Family friend Angela Stevens has been raising money for Adam’s Fund by selling quizzes to her hairdressing clientele. Our thanks to Angela (and to her intellectual customers!).
The staff of the Reliance Security Group depot in Exeter recently held a mega-fundraising evening to raise money for Adam’s Fund. Following raffles, an auction, bingo and entertainment from an Elvis impersonator, the evening raised a staggering £2,000 and we would like to extend our grateful thanks to everyone concerned. Particular thanks go to Andy Richards, Tracey Cockayne and Debbie Cetin for all their hard work and generosity. The donation came at just the right moment as Adam's Scoliosis has gotten markedly worse recently and his current wheelchair and car seat no longer afford him the support that he requires. We had obtained quotes for both a new, lighter wheelchair and a fully adjustable car seat but had insufficient funds to purchase both until, out of the blue, we received the money from the Reliance evening. Orders for both items have now been placed and we will post full details including pictures when they arrive.
Update - 22nd March 2014 - Both items were delivered in the Autumn of 2013. See 2013 News for details.
In September, Tamsin Roberts and Charmaine Woods jointly celebrated their 40th birthdays with a Black and White Ball at St Rumons Social Club in Redruth. They decided to forego presents and instead kindly asked families and friends to donate to Adam’s Fund. Our thanks to all those who donated and to Tamsin and Charmaine, for both their kind gesture and for a generous private contribution to our family to assist with expenses likely to be incurred when Adam has his back surgery in 2014.
We received another significant contribution this year from the keen Euchre players at the Blue Anchor pub in Fraddon, who raised £700 for the Fund from their weekly collections and raffles. Many thanks to you all and may all your hands be winning ones (although on reflection, you can't all win at the same time, but it's the thought that counts!)
In October, Mr David Charleston celebrated his 70th birthday and asked his family and friends not to buy him presents but to donate to Adam’s Fund instead. This resulted in donations of over £160 and we would like to thank Mr Charleston for his gracious gesture and his family and friends for their generous donations.
