According to meteorologists, we are now officially in spring – and have been since the beginning of the month. Summer, and the ‘Wedding Season’ is almost upon us. We’re positively excited! We’ve decided to start the month with a ‘spring’ in our step, and share some of the most recent fundraising efforts that are helping us to achieve our dreams.
Firstly we’d like to say a huge, “thank you” to all involved with The Lincs Wedding Show last month. The team raised a fabulous £112.00 for The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation, and we’re looking forward to working with them on a more regular basis. Keep your eyes peeled!
We’d also like to say a big ‘Tweety’ thanks to The Little Wedding Helper, who hosts the Bristol Tweet Ups. The meetings have raised a brilliant £115.55 for us so far, and we can’t wait to see everybody at this year’s Tweet Ups. Upcoming dates can be found on Facebook here.
A huge thanks to Weddings by Claire, who raised a brilliant £205 at her recent wedding fair at The Big Sheep. Thank you for your continued support.
A BIG thanks to twobirds bridesmaids, who raised £203.33 for The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation at their most recent sale – it was a fantastic event, raising a great deal for our cause, as well as providing some blushing brides with their ideal maids’ gowns.
Thank you to Jo and Sarah, who hosted the launch of Win Your Hertfordshire Wedding. A massive £2,700 was raised on the night, which was a great success and a real testament to those involved. If you live in Hertfordshire and would like to win a wedding worth £10,000 be sure to click the link above!
Last, but by no means least, we’d like to thank Titan Exeter, for matching a donation we received to replace our broken laptop. That machine is integral to the work we do, so we are hugely grateful for their support.
Upcoming Fundraising Events
The Bridal Tea Party Event: 19th April, 2015, 13:00 onwards

Run or Dye, 10th October, 2015
Louise Baker, one of our volunteers, will be attempting the Run or Dye event at Chatsworth House, Derbyshire in October this year, in aid of The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation. Self-confessed Slummy Mummy Louise very rarely runs for the bus, let alone 5K, so we’re looking forward to following her progress. A sponsor form will be available to monitor her progress shortly.
As always, we look forward to hearing your fundraising stories, and hearing about your amazing efforts. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your news and updates.
