Hello everyone . I hope you are all well and have had a great start to the year. Our new year has started with a cheque from the Coventry Charity Football Cup committee. It was a wonderful evening where a number of charities were chosen to receive a cheque from the money raised the previous year. We were lucky enough again this year to be one of the chosen few. This will go towards our Easter egg appeal, off to a great start. We would like to thank all the Coventry Charity Football Cup committee members for the continued support throughout the years. A big heartfelt thank you to you all from all of us 🙂
Hi All Another year of fundraising is upon us, and although we know times can be tough for a lot of us at the moment, we really hope you can help with our worthwhile cause, when you can.We have our upcoming annual Easter Egg appeal, delivering eggs to local hospitals, including University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire, Warwick, Rugby St Cross, Northampton General, The Horton General & John Radcliffe HospitalIf any companies, organisations or individuals would like to support then please get in touch. We are happy to collect within the local area, any amount of eggs donated is much appreciated.We are also excited to announce another upcoming date for your diaries – June 22nd 2024. We hope you can join us for the annual Avon Dassett Soap Box Derby, we’ve been lucky enough to be the chosen charity for the past 3 years, what an honour that’s been.It really is such a fun day out for all the family, you can expect to see Soap Box Derby racing for juniors and adults, market stalls, food and drink, friendly atmosphere and lovely weather (fingers crossed).If you wish to enter the race or for more information please go to the website https://www.avondassett.com/clubs-groups/avon-dassett-soap-box-derby/Later in the year we are looking forward to another CCWL Xmas Doo which was sadly missed last year, and following the success of our first Aviation Fun day for the children, this will be returning.If anyone is interested in organising their own fundraising event, such as mud runs, local quiz nights or challenges eg Kilimanjaro, Marathons, Skydives to name a few then please message our page or contact one of the team.Please like and share to spread the word Thank you all for your continued support!
Whilst it has always been such a fantastic possibility to grant ‘a wish’ to our children and families, since the Covid pandemic and now the cost of living crisis that is affecting us all, we have not had the fundraising opportunities that would allow us to fund these trips so we have made the sad decision to postpone all GKTW wishes until further notice.
We will, of course, review the situation next year.
With restrictions firmly still in place we were given the go ahead to deliver the selection boxes to UHCW,George Elliot,Rugby st Cross and Warwick hospitals.We would like to thank Coventry Building Soc Binley rd,Mark Clarke,DMA Horse Transport,Earlsdon village and the Sports Connextions and everyone that continues to support our Charity.
Wow lights galore,we would like to thank Tan Brooks and Ken Brooks for once again putting on an outstanding Xmas garden display in Tans front garden.Even in these troubled and uncertain times they were able to put on a wonderful display .with the support of there community dropping donations we are please to say the Brooks family raised over £420.
