HUGE thanks to Kelly White and her family for fundraising for us.
Kelly got in touch with us late in November to say that she was organizing a photoshoot in aid of Dorset Mind. As an amateur photographer, Kelly’s idea was to hold a Christmas-themed photoshoot… And what better way to capture your family at this time of year than in a festive jumper!
An inspiration for us…
What impressed us about Kelly was her determination, and infectious enthusiasm
. Working as a childminder, Kelly also involved her children in decorating gingerbread and making decorations for Holdenhurst Hall. She was also able to inspire her kids to have fun raising money for charity – from an young age…
The result was amazing as you can see to the left.
Kelly’s friends and family all supported her – and had great fun in doing so. The photos look great (we’ve just chosen one montage to show) – and make a perfect memento, or gift for family at Christmas.
In total, Kelly raised £480
to be split between us and national Mind.
This was Kelly’s first attempt at creating a fundraising event. She’s determined that next year’s will be bigger and better – plus we’ll be able to support her in doing so.
If you want to fundraise for us, please do get in touch with plenty of time to spare. That way, we can help you publicise your event – and support you however we can. More details, including ideas and sponsorship forms can be found here
