Angie, our Fundraising Manager, went to meet John Campbell and the Riverside Darts Team in Musselburgh. They have been hard at work fundraising for us all year, organising not one, but two 12 hour darts marathons as well as organising a fabulous fancy dress walk from Musselburgh to Portobello and back. We were absolutely thrilled to receive a cheque today for £5,000, which is an incredible amount to have raised.
This is actually their 31st year of fundraising and this year's total brings them to over £100k raised for different charities. Today was a real testimony to their community and all the hard work they put in and we are incredibly grateful to have been nominated for this year.
Thank you so much to John Campbell and all Riverside Darts team members, their family and friends, as well as the Riverside pub. A special thank you to Kara Somerville as well, who nominated us and singlehandedly raised £1000 of the total, as well as Tommy Nicolson who travelled from Whitley Bay to be part of the day and shake his collection bucket on the walk. Community support like this makes the world of difference, not only in raising vital funds, but raising awareness of work. Thank you so much. #communityheroes
