COULD you raise just £100 to help your local hospice continue to care for patients and their families? Take until the end of the year and raise the funds however you would like.
Willow Wood event organiser Laura Marinelli explained: “There really are no rules or restrictions to how you fundraise for us – provided of course, that’s it is legal!“The first two members of this year’s Ton of Love Club are Neev and Lois Patel from Ashton who, in memory of their granddad Eric took over his collection of coins in a huge whisky bottle. Together with a further donation from a family friends, they’ve raised the amazing sum of just over £500 for us, and we’re so grateful.
“Local lads Josh Askew and Ben Bevan are each cycling 500km over the month of June to raise funds for us – they’ve smashed their initial target of £500 and now are over £1,000.
“Like Neeve and Lois, their photos will be part of a huge artwork which we will hang in our reception next year, featuring everyone who has raised £100 or more for us from now until the end of 2020.”Ben and Josh are from Denton and Ben plays rugby union for Dukinfield.
If you would like to take part, but are not sure how to proceed just go to www.willowwood.info
The Ton of Love page has got lots of fundraising ideas if you need a bit of inspiration.
Laura said: “We’re working on a fundraiser’s guide which will have even more ideas, hints and tips to help you fundraise and more. This will be added to the page to download or we can send you a copy on request. All we ask is that you complete the online registration form. That way we know what you’re doing and can help promote your fundraising.”
