On the 24th July Ffion’s wish was granted. she had asked to go the X FACTOR and meet Simon Cowell. Our man Craig set about making this possible. Amazingly she managed to watch the show being shot , but that’s not all folks. we managed to wrangle a meet with Simon Cowell, Louis Thomlinson and Robbie Williams. Here are some off the pics below. Remember we cant any do any of this without your help and support.
On the 21st-23rd September, we were invited to join the local festivities by the brilliant people off Stockton. we were given space in the local Inn (The Crown Inn) to set up a stall and that was greatly appreciated as it was raining all day. that didn’t stop the locals coming out and supporting us and the festivities. there was a scarecrow hunt in the village, a smashing game off smash the dinner set and our tombola raffle and not forgetting all the other activities put on around the local area. With many a great donation and people taking part , a very big thank you to you all for having us and helping us to raise money. you have always been there for us and a great supporter off our cause. Thank you people off Stockton 🙂
So here we are , at one off Coventry’s biggest events off the year. so what did we have to for this big event , BIG PRIZES. We had 2 x Adult quads ,2 x Kids quads, and 2 x Mountain bikes to give away. the weather was awesome, sunshine over the whole 2 days. All prizes were won by local families and a great deal of money raised for our cause. Not only that but getting our name and what we do out there so more people know we are here to help. A win win on all fronts and hopefully we shall see you next year. Finally a big thanks to everyone who donated and took part to help us raise money so we can carry on granting wishes. Also big thanks to Josh and Sue from the Binley Branch of Coventry Building Society.
