Fundraising Round Up

Thank you to…

We’d like to start this round up by saying a massive thank you to Joanna Cooke of Curves and Couture Essex, who has now raised a staggering £3,806.03 for The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation by shaving her head. We are so proud of you, Joanna – we know it wasn’t easy! Joanna has set herself a target of £4,000, so if you would like to help her to reach, and exceed, her total, please click here to donate. In the mean time, here are some images of the event itself:

We’d also like to say a huge thank you to Dan Peters, who grew a beard for the month of “Septembeard” and raised a fabulous £123.50 for the foundation. Here’s a sneak peak of his facial fuzz:

Ongoing fundraisers

We are delighted to announce that The Broadstreet Blokes and Belles charity calendars are now on sale, with all proceeds being donated to The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation. Featuring staff members, past and present, and regular patrons, the calendars are a cheeky way to raise a little money, as well as being utterly brilliant. There’s no better way to see in each new month! The calendars can be purchased online here, or directly from The Squire Inn in Chipping Sodbury, The Bell at Old Sodbury, and The Swan Inn at Nibley. Each calendar costs just £7.50 – why not purchase both?!

The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation has recently become involved with Give a Car, an initiative that allows you to donate the proceeds from your scrapped or auctioned car to your favourite charities. Give a Car will even pick up your vehicle for you – you can’t say fairer than that! If you’re looking for a new car, and are wondering what to do with your current vehicle, please give this not-for-profit organisation a look.

If you love shopping online, we strongly suggest that you give Every Click a look, and ‘Give as you live’. It’s quick and easy to register – not to mention free – and will allow you to donate to The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation every time you shop online. You don’t even need to log in each time you go on a shopping spree – simple! What’s more, the donation will come from the place you shop and not your own pocket, so you can shop with ease. Retailers such as Argos, Ebay, The ELC, John Lewis, and Amazon – plus many more – are involved. Go on, and shop happy.

Upcoming events

There are so many events coming up – let’s hope we cram them all in here! Involving a 13-mile hike around some of London’s most haunted spots, the Halloween Hike is one of the scariest, but most fulfilling, ways to spend your All Hallows’ Eve, allowing you to raise money for your favourite charity while having an absolute blast. All ages and abilities are welcome – the scarier the fancy dress the better! Registration costs just £45 and includes entertainment and hospitality, free snacks, water, and energy drinks throughout the walk; a tasty cooked breakfast at the end of the walk, and a route fully supported by signage, route cards, and medics. There are still places left, so be sure to sign up here today.

Speaking of cycling, now is the time to register your interest in the British Heart Foundation London to Brighton Bike Ride 2015. If you love to cycle and want to combine your passion with raising a few pounds, be sure to sign up as spaces are limited – registration costs just £40 per adult. Covering 54 miles from Clapham Common, London, to Madeira Drive, Brighton, this popular cycle will take place during June 2015, although an exact date has yet to be confirmed. We’ll keep you posted!
