When you are in business your mailbox fills with requests Some time ago I realised that giving products or money is one way of donating to charity and good causes
.I decided that I would give not only products but my time and my products to some of the many people who contact me on an almost daily basis.
All are good causes everyone deserves help. However, choices have to be made so as my way of paying it forward here are some of the people I have paid it forward.to in the past few months
Hi there Thanks again for your donation. I'm happy to let you know we managed to raise a fantastic £1000.30 so we have enough money to buy 1 iPad, 1 iPad mini & roughly £300 of vouchers for the poppi suite!
The Sports Dinner was a great success – we are still raising money for it, because we have another two auction items – so still counting in the money. We raised, so far, £4,992! Thank you so much for your support with this, it really does make a difference in selling raffle tickets when we have special prizes on show at the table – I know the table who won yours, open it up immediately to share!
The charity I'm raising funds for is The Lighthouse Perth (charity no SCO46186) set up to raise awareness & much-needed funds to open a safe place in Perth for those suffering mental health problems including those with suicidal thoughts & self-harmers. This cause is very close to my heart & I hope to make this year's ladies night an even bigger success than the last. I'm currently looking for donations to raffle & auction off on the night to raise as much as we can for this wonderful cause. I'd really appreciate it if you can help me out anything at all would help! Thanks in advance, Hollie x
I am sorry it has taken so long to send an acknowledgment, thank you very much for your generosity, we had a successful raffle and managed to raise a fantastic £380.

I'm raising money for Mind, the mental health charity, and taking part in the 24hr Mind Hike which covers 40miles. I've never done something like this before, although I used to do a lot of walking on family holidays since my health deteriorated (I have suffered with chronic fatigue syndrome for many years) I've done the walking but with breaks! So this is a big thing for me, but I'm doing it to support the charity, those suffering with mental health and in the memory of my grandad & uncle who I sadly lost last year, around the time I decided to do the hike. Here is a link to everything regarding what we will be doing, where we will be the lot! https://www.charitychallenge.com/expedition/2512/Mind-Hike-2017-Lake-District Safe to say it hasn't fully sunk in that I'm doing it!! I'm more than happy to have you share this with your customers/followers as I'm always open about my struggles as I know how much my words can/could someone in a similar position.Thank you so so much! I can't begin to explain how much this means! Your an absolute star for supporting so many charities, something I wish more people did and something I'm hoping to do in the future myself with an events business. This really means a lot!
