Weekly Roundup 25th March

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 at Upcoming Events.

This week was our first #getinvolved event – #BakeForEdie. There were bake sales being held across Wirral, in Liverpool, Cheshire, Cardiff and further afield. The current known total is £4661.73 with more figures to be confirmed yet! This has surpassed our original hopes and we are thrilled with how many people got involved with this so thank you all! (Photos that we’ve collected are below!)

Friday saw the start of AquaSafe’s sponsored swims during their lessons and this has carried on all weekend (more sponsored swims on Thursday this week too). The children swam the width of the Mersey (younger swimmers did this as a group effort). We want to say a huge well done to all of the children and thank you to everyone who sponsored them!

On Friday we also had a group of volunteers who were down at Morrisons in New Brighton, bag packing. They raised £466.54! Thank you to all who volunteered in particular Lorraine who we believe stayed there all day!

Yesterday Bernie Miller and friends ran in the Chain Runners event that took place in Wirral, raising over £600. Well done all involved!

Today we had the long awaited Princess and Superhero event at the Octel Club in Bromborough. Yet again we had an amazing turn out and we also had amazing weather to go with it! Everyone seemed to be having a great time and £2798.90 has been raised!

The Liverpool 1/2 marathon was run today by Steve Copeland, Debbie Rowlands and Andrea Dillon, and the 10 mile road race was completed by Karl Horgan. Well done to all for completing these races!

Finally, today, Richie Hellon started his huge walk from Tranmere Rovers to Dover Athletic. He left at 6am this morning and will arrive in Dover on Friday. If you see him on your travels give him a beep or a hello if you can safely!

We also want to say thanks to the parents of the Shaftes youth teams, who collected over £250 for Grandad Chris to photograph 4 games. Also, to the Dock AFC, who collected over £700 during a pool competition and football quiz.

Next week our main events are
The Edie Molyneux Charity Fundraiser at the Gladstone Theatre, with Ricky Tomlinson hosting and featuring Charlie Landsborough. We hope those who have tickets have a brilliant time!

Then for the Easter weekend we kick off with a golf tournament at Prenton golf club (no spaces left for golfing but you’re welcome to attend the evening event there), and then on Easter Sunday we have events at the Rose & Crown in Wallasey and the Woodchurch Pub.

There is also a neon light walk taking place on Tuesday evening over in Gayton, run by Lucy’s Pineapple fund but fundraising for both children. So if you fancy a Neon lighted evening walk for charity, check out their event on this.

Again, all events going on can be found on our events page!

Charity News!

Bradley Lowery Foundation - Supporting Fundraising Campaigns

As of today we are officially celebrating being part of the Bradley Lowery Foundation! *

Bradley Lowery was a young boy with a rare brain tumour called neuroblastoma. He tragically lost his battle in the summer of 2017 aged just 6 years old. The foundation was set up in Bradley’s memory to help other children by raising funds for medical treatment and equipment not available in the UK.

For us this is monumental as it means we are now part of a registered charity and can accept donations with gift aid if you are a tax paying individual. It also means that businesses and larger companies that require a charity number can now make donations as well!

One of the harder announcements is that after a lot of advice from the foundation and parents of other children seeking treatment in Monterrey, we are having to increase our target to £700,000. This is a massive increase, over double that of our original baseline target. We did not come to this decision lightly, we were first given the advice over a week ago and completely dismissed it thinking it was an unrealistic target.

However, some of the families here have exhausted their funds and need to rethink fundraising. We don’t want to be put in that position after all of your generosity and hard work. We need to be able to give Edie the best chance we can.

£300,000.00 was frightening, but we’re nearly at a third after such a short time. If £700,000.00 is what it takes, then we don’t stop until we get it.

Grandad Chris after we told him how scared we were.

Our hearts shattered all over again, it feels like one step forward and three steps back, but this is how we felt when we were told £300,000, and thanks to every single one of you, we’ve managed to smash a third of that in a matter of weeks, so we know that with all of you in our corner and the huge effort each and every one of you are making, that we can do it.

We have so much faith in the love and support from you all, you truly are fighting alongside us.

Please keep fighting, we need you all now more than ever!
All our love,
Ashleigh & Steve
