Raising funds and awareness at Lakeside Shopping Centre

13th February 2011

The Button Family spent the day at Lakeside shopping centre creating awareness and raising funds for CRY in memory of Graham Button.

On February 13th our family and I spent the day at Lakeside shopping centre creating Awareness and raising funds for this important charity and in memory of a loved one. We raised funds by selling our handmade cupcakes, CRY merchandise with books donated by our friends an family. We also ran Lucky Dips and Tombola tickets offering some great prizes for all ages.

During our day we met a lot of people who have been affected by SADS or other cardiac issues which highlights the importance of CRY and their services. We also met people who had dealt with CRY before, along with a volume of people who had not heard of the charity before today.

In total we raised £450.00 at Lakeside, with another £235.00 donated online by friends, family and colleagues.

It is truly heart warming to see so many people donate and help us raise £685.00 in memory of my dear brother Graham Button. So we would like to say a big thank you to all our friends and family who helped us make this day successful. Along with a big thank you to Lakeside for providing us a great location to hold this event.
