Weekly Roundup – 8th April

Hi all, it’s our weekly round-up post to say thank you to those who have held an event or participated in a sponsored event for us and to let you know what you can look forward to next week! As always, we want to say a huge thank you to everyone who is mentioned below, for those who have attended/supported and for everyone who has made a donation no matter what size. We appreciate you all ❤️💙

We are adding more and more events to our calendar so please take a look on this to see what’s going on in the next week on our Upcoming Events.

On Friday we had another Bingo night with Captain America! Due to the Easter holidays, the turnout was lower than last time however we still raised £650! Many thanks to all who attended and of course our own Steve Smith for donning the Captain America outfit again and calling the numbers.

Saturday morning saw the attic sale take place hosted by Edie’s Angels. The rain was heavy but that didn’t stop our angels, and they raised £695! Claire Hazler also raised £83 in cupcake sales, and a further £134 was raised from selling Spider-Ede merchandise, so just over £900 raised in total. Thank you to all of the angels, volunteers and those who braved the rain and came and bought items.

Steph Ward held a cake sale in Birkenhead Park by the Park run. Thank you to Steph for also braving the awful weather!

We also had three events taken place up at Marlowe Road Church in Wallasey yesterday. All held by Karen Stevenson, we had a Popcats party in the morning, a cake sale and tombola early afternoon, followed by a party with Mrs Freckles after that. A raffle was also held throughout the day. A huge thank you to Karen for organising all of this and of course those who attended. A total of £1625 was raised for the day!

Then in the evening the Clarence Hotel held a charity race evening, auction and raffle too. This was a great success! Thanks to all at the Clarence for getting involved in this and those who took part.

This week we also heard that a friend of Edie’s Grandad, Rob Aslett, has raised £1500 for a sponsored slim (lost 27lb, well done Rob!)

In addition to the above, thank yous are also due to Whieldon’s Butchers and their customers for collecting over £40 in the shop, and Halifax in Birkenhead have collected £500.

We have some totals in from last week’s events too. The Gladstone theatre night for Edie raised over £8300; the golf day in Prenton raised over £4090; the sponsored swim arranged by AquaSafe raised over £3590; and Easter Ede raised £2111!

Next week’s main event is the long awaited LFC Legends fundraiser on Friday 13th, with live music, Richy Sheehy will be performing ‘We’ve got Salah!’, an auction and more!

On Sunday we also have a Charity Race afternoon being held at St. Joseph’s Social Club (The Joey’s) in Birkenhead.

We also want to say good luck to
