Brunsdon Helping the Community: Fundraising Update

Monday, October 03, 2011

Last year, Brunsdon’s Heartfelt Foundation raised a staggering £22,000 for charity!

The momentum continues. Recently, a Brunsdon team raised £1,360 in a gruelling three hour ‘Zumbathon’ in aid of The Family Haven, a Gloucester-based charity day centre for vulnerable families.

Heartfelt committee member and event organiser Anna Garman said, “It was a fantastic effort from everyone, especially on one of the hottest days of the year. It really was quite an endurance event.”

Family HavenLoraine Barrett, manager of The Family Haven said, “We are very grateful to the Brunsdon team for such a great effort. We depend totally on charitable donations as it costs us about £200,000 a year to keep going.”

And in a separate charity donation, Brunsdon teamed up with the Gloucester Quays Rotary Club to help the St. James City Farm open a new café.

Heartfelt committee Chairman Paul Baldwin, also a member of the Rotary Club, said, “The City Farm is a fantastic facility which allows children living in the city access to a farm on their doorstep, with rare breeds, sheep, goats, cows, chickens etc. When I learned that the Rotary Club had raised more than £1,000 for the Farm, Heartfelt decided to add another £500 to the pot.”

A City Farm spokesman said, “Donations like this really help us to carry on with the work and we are obviously very grateful to Rotary and Brunsdon for lending a hand.”

Brunsdon staff and friends also raised over £200 recently with a coffee and cake morning in aid of the Macmillan Nurses.

The Heartfelt Committee plan a number of other interesting fund raising events later this year. Watch this space!
