This week’s #FundraisingFriday heroes show us that you can raise money for CHSF in so many ways. Whether it’s sponsoring football kits or asking for donations at a birthday party – how could you raise vitals funds for Yorkshire’s hearts in 2020?
Cumberworth Football Club
Michael Mannifield, Cumberworth JFC Secretary said:
Our football club is the heart of our community and as such we like to give back to those people that support the club on a yearly basis. We operate with 18x junior teams and 4x senior teams with over 300 players registered with the club.
As part of our commitment to supporting others we reached out to members to see if anyone had benefitted from a local charitable cause as we were in a position to donate monies towards them.
One of our U16 players and one of our sponsor’s children experienced first hand the excellent work CHSF do and nominated them as charitable partner for the upcoming season. This was unanimously agreed by our managers and committee.
Therefore we dedicated the sponsorship of our 2019-20 alternate kit to Children’s Heart Surgery Fund and donated the money we would have asked a local business for to them – £500. We hope that this donation helps improve the quality of life the charity supports and we hope to help them further over the next 2 years.
In June 2019 Jack turned 18 and whilst celebrating his milestone birthday we decided to raise some more money for Children’s Heart Surgery Fund.
This was done by donations on the door at his birthday party and a raffle. CHSF support so many families and we experienced that support 18 years ago when Jack was born and we will always be grateful.
Thank you so very much. Ian & Anne Blakeley.
