A huge thank you to everyone who supported Family Friends in 2015. The Christmas spirit was certainly in evidence across the Royal Borough with some fantastic festive fundraising for Family Friends raising over £1500!
Centrica plc raised £409.52 by holding a Christmas Market at their Windsor head office. Their staff also purchased gifts for the children we support, which were distributed by our team and volunteers, and were extremely gratefully received by the families.
Churches Together in Windsor held a collection at their annual Carols on the Hill service next to Windsor Castle, resulting in a donation of £361.13. This annual event features the band of the Household Cavalry, one of the locally-based regiments supported by our Army Families team.
Ascot Racecourse invited Family Friends to have a bucket collection at its Christmas Racing Weekend. Our dedicated volunteers braved the cold to collect £815.71 from generous racegoers.
We wish all our supporters the very best for 2016. If your New Year’s Resolution was to give something back, there are lots of ways to get involved as a fundraising volunteer. Take a look at our Fundraising page or contact our fundraiser Asma to find out how you could help.
