Bury Locals raise a glass for SuperJosh
WE HAVE had a brilliant weekend at the Forever Bury Beer Festival!
I’d like to say a massive thank you to Dave Giffard and the team for all their support, and to our wonderful team of Thumbraisers for all their help.
Thanks to everyone’s kind donations and help, we raised more than £1,000!
On Wednesday, the new Curry’s PC World opened on Woodfield Retail Park in Bury and it’s a total transformation.
Store Manager Andy Caygill and his team have worked so hard getting it ready and it has definitely paid off.
As the store’s chosen charity, we were thrilled to join the Mayor, Mike Connolly and Consort Ian Hargreaves, for the opening. A huge thank you to Andy for all the support and kind donation of a TV and some very special BeatsSolo2 headphones.
It seemed fitting that Mike and Ian’s last engagement was to mark the beginning of something new in Bury.
Again, thank you for choosing Josh’s Charity as one of your three to support over the last 12 months, you have been amazing and have left a legacy of your own behind you.
Thank you to Lola Fellone who raised £25 at Bury Grammar School by selling tickets to pick the name of a stuffed lamb.
BGS also donated tickets to its recent circus event for our special families. A great time was had by everyone who attended, and it’s wonderful seeing more lovely memories being made.
Phill Smith is also raising money for Josh’s charity by taking part in the Chester half marathon this Sunday. Phill was inspired by Josh’s story, and his battle and is determined to raise as much money to keep helping those who need our support.
We also owe a huge thank you to 11-year-old Tia who will be swimming 100 lengths on May 24, to raise funds for her school friend, Ava. We are supporting Ava’s family as she undergoes treatment for her tumour.
I am always so humbled when children raise money for charity, and it’s amazing how inspired Tia has become since striking up a friendship with Ava, who she has been visiting during her treatment. She has already raised £412, which is brilliant.
On May 25, brothers Andy and Neil Bebbington take on a mammoth challenge cycling from Tower Bridge all the way to Paris (via a ferry, of course!).
They hope to crack their adventure in just three days, and have already raised just over £500. All donations raised will be coming straight to Josh’s charity to help us continue to provide support to children and their families.
Thank you so much, and good luck guys. We can’t wait to follow your adventure!
All the money you help us raise, no matter how you do it, or how much it is, goes to helping our amazing children and their families.
In the past week we have provided support to families at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital and Christies, offering counselling sessions, and also starting work on house adaptations and garden makeovers. Thank you, always, to everyone!
