We need your help to raise £10,000
In honour of Dame Vera’s 100th Birthday, we have launched the #VERA100 Campaign to raise £10,000 to purchase a ‘magic carpet’ for the children to use at our new Dame Vera Lynn Children’s Centre in Cuckfield, West Sussex. A ‘magic carpet’ is a fantastic interactive resource for our children. It projects images onto the floor, offering children the opportunity to ‘feed the fish’, ‘scatter fallen leaves into the air’ and ‘play with the stars.’
We are asking our supporters and the local community to get involved in helping us to raise these funds. There are may ways you can participate and below are some suggestions on how you can get involved, or come up with your own unique idea.
The first company to support us in raising funds for our ‘magic carpet’ are Clifford Dann Estate Agents in Ditchling who are holding a coffee morning on 8th March and a prize draw on 10th March to win 2 tickets to 100:A Tribute to Dame Vera Lynn concert at the London Palladium on 18th March. We thank them for their support.
The Weald Theatre Group have also donated £100 from their annual pantomime, Sleeping Beauty at Claire Hall in Haywards Heath.
If you would like to join in supporting our campaign as we celebrate Dame Vera’s 100th Birthday then please contact us on 01444 473274 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please help ‘spread the word’ by sharing #VERA100 on facebook and twitter with your fundraising idea and get your friends, family and work colleagues to join you.
HOW WILL YOU RAISE £100?
Hold a cake sale, organise a coffee morning, donate proceeds from a boot sale, get your local pub to hold a quiz night, take on a challenge event …………… the list is endless! What are you waiting for!
