Research shows that acts of kindness can make us feel happier, but when it comes
to working with charities, the sheer number of causes and charities asking for attention
can make it difficult not to want to choose all of them.
We decided that we would support a charity for “The Big Meet”, We chose “When You Wish Upon a Star”
and rather than this just being “1 act of kindness” we pledged to support them in the long run as
the work they do is beyond compelling.
When You Wish Upon a Star’s aim is to grant the Wishes of children suffering from life threatening illnesses. Wishes are varied and far reaching, from a trip to Disney Florida or meeting up with a sporting hero of popstar.
Whatever the Wish WYWUAS will aim to make that Wish a reality. WYWUAS will always have a firm place in our hearts because they do something amazing for children that might not otherwise have the chance to do in their lifetime.
On the 26th August 2013 we held our first ever show; “The Big Meet”, we raised an incredible £1,291.11!!! with a large chunk of that coming from the amazing tombola we had on the day!
In 2014 we raised an amazing £1,511.23!! Again the majority coming from our huge tombola with prizes donated from some very generous people & companies
2015 was an important year for us as we made a huge decision to move our show from Bruntingthorpe Proving Grounds to Uttoxeter Racecourse. This move definitely paid off as we raised an even larger £1,600 for When You Wish Upon a Star!
As well as the tombola and donating our proceeds to WYWUAS we will always be looking for new and innovative ways to raise money for our chosen charity.
