Falkirk Raffle and Craft Sale Fundraising
One Parent Families Scotland would like to say a huge thank you to Laura and Michelle for all their hard work organising a Raffle and Craft Sale. The event was planned after our summer programme ended as Laura and Michelle wanted to help the Family Centre in Maddiston raise much needed funds for our Family Food and Fun evenings.
Laura and Michelle set up the Craft Group in August and have been very willing to promote and encourage new people along. Participants of the group have all worked hard to design and craft a host of Christmas gifts such as sparkle and themed glasses, hair accessories and hot chocolate cones to sell during our Christmas event.
Laura and Michelle with help from another parent, Jaqueline, had previously approached local businesses and collected items for a Raffle and sold tickets to their friends and the local community.
The Raffle and Craft was held on the 6th December and together raised £320.
This money will help us pay for the dinners we offer during our Family Food and Fun evenings which run every Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 3.30pm – 5.00pm.
Centre Manager Carrol stated “I really appreciate everything Laura and Michelle have done to raise money for the Family Food and Fun evenings. It is also great that they have helped to set up and run a craft group. Through these events more and more families are accessing the service and discovering the wide range of support available to the local community. It has been wonderful seeing lots of people around and families having the opportunity to meet other families. Thank you Laura and Michelle.”
We hope you all have a fantastic Christmas and New year!
