MFR Cash For Kids - How Much?
I'm thrilled to announce that Moray Firth Radio raised a staggering £32,300 at the weekend during their on air Cash for Kids Auction. A magnificent amount!
It's a great charity as all the money gets spent on local kids, these are just some of the things the money is used for:
* Clothing for a 15 year old girl who looks after her mother and her 3 siblings. Her mother had previous battled substance misuse and is now struggling to get her life back on track.
* We purchased a specially adapted bicycle for a young girl who has Myotonic Dystrophy, learning difficulties and is autistic. As a result she is unable to walk without a walking aid and has communication problems. She is currently living with a foster family and making great progress. The bicycle we bought her will allow her to join in with family cycles and enjoy playing outdoors with her friends.
* We funded a residential ski break for a 10 year boy with Down’s Syndrome. Despite being in a mainstream school he requires constant supervision. He has already worked very hard to achieve all his goals and going on this ski team is another milestone for this young man. MFR Cash for Kids were able to make this happen.
I'm glad Lazy Daisy Glass was able to help in a small way!
