Team effort leads to coffee morning success!

A coffee morning may sound a less ambitious fundraiser than running a marathon but Jennie has just raised £1070 with one she hosted at her home.

Jennie (third from right) had plenty of help at her event!

My granddaughter Charlotte received a liver transplant when she was six months old. She’s had her ups and downs health wise but continues to enjoy wonderful support from her ‘team’ at Kings and CLDF. She’s now 12 years old and enjoying life and the time seemed right to say thank you by hosting a fundraising coffee morning.

I sent an initial invite out to friends, family and all the groups I’m involved with asking them to save the date. A month later I sent out a further invitation with more details and added that there would be a raffle and a lady coming along selling jewellery. I’m pretty sure this added interest and helped motivate people to come. I contacted local businesses to ask for raffle prizes and they were very generous. I also asked six of my friends who are good cake makers to make some cakes and they were wonderful.

The jewellery sale was an added attraction

On the day I had about 80 people come along – the good weather helped enormously – and everyone enjoyed themselves.  I was delighted with the fundraising total  – it’s great to be able to give something back. I would say to anyone thinking of hosting a coffee morning, give plenty of notice, make sure you have good cake-makers and helpers on board and you’ll have fun as well as raising funds!

Husband Colin was on clear up duty!
