First thing we did was sponsor our local school. We contacted them to see if we could help in anyway to donate some money towards a school trip or anything else and they said they were taking nine students over to Belgium to visit the WW1 Battlefields, so we went to the school and gave them £150 they were very appreciative with this.
Also we had a Mince pie event before Christmas and raised £30 to go towards our funds for our chosen charity YFM (Youth and Families Matter). We also raised £360 for our charity YFM - Sonya in the Branch ran the Southampton half Marathon back in April. We all went along from the Branch to support her.
We have just given our local charity Youth and Family matters that we support a cheque for £110.50 which we raised doing a Raffle for a Hamper and free holiday all donated by local businesses and Tour Operators.
