As you may know I am a proud sponsor of The Brain Tumour Charity as it's very close to my heart as I have had close friends and family who have been diagnosed. The fact that less than 2% of the overall Cancer Research funding goes to this charity also inspires me to want to help to make a difference.
I also love to be able to help other charities and worthy causes along the way. Please do get in touch if you have any fundraising ideas...! x
Saturday 7th March
The first fundraising event of the Year was for Brain Tumour Awareness Month which is the Charity’s annual excuse to indulge in cake, biscuits, pies, brownies or the humble crumble, all for a really good cause - beating brain tumours.
With the help of homebakes from myself, family and donated cakes from local businesses, In total we raised £270.00 which 100% has been donated to The Brain Tumour Charity.
Saturday 5th October
On Saturday 5th October 2019 to celebrate the second anniversary of Watson Wigs, I invited people to my shop to have their hair cut and for it to be donated to The Little Princess Trust. In my shop was the hairdresser Katie Smith (My Dollz Hair) who cut five brave ladies/girls hair;
Lisa Phillips, Nicci Thorn, Katie Fisher, Sophie Moore, Emily Everett
Including the donated hair brought to me before the event we had in total
95.5 inches of hair.
Outside my shop I had Rapunzel entertaining the children with glitter nails and tattoos, along with cupcakes and teddies for a donation and a raffle table with amazing prizes donated from local businesses in Wickford.
In total we raised £600.00 which was split between The Brain Tumour Charity & The Little Princess Trust.
Friday 7th June
As you know on Facebook you can opt to start a fundraiser on/around your Birthday.
This year I chose to raise money for St. Luke's Hospice to coincide with Father's Day and we raised £50
Friday 22nd March
Every March, The Brain Tumour Charity kicks off with Brain Tumour Awareness Month (BTAM) by baking a difference for everyone affected by brain tumours - with the Big Bandana Bake.
I held a Big Bandana Bake outside my shop on Friday 22nd March 2019 to raise money & awareness for the charity to help beat brain tumours and raised £340 which I was so overwhelmed with how generous everyone was!
