Whilst most of us have been getting over our Christmas Cake eating Clare Regale-Day and Colin Russell have been busy training for the Marathon to be held on 24th April 2016.
With our English weather dipping to 1 degrees we cannot thank Clare and Colin enough for their gruelling training programmes. If you see them training along the Thames or over our rural countryside, please give them a wave and a cheer!
Please also follow the links below and support them in helping our young people of Suffolk.
In the meantime, well done to both Clare and Colin and our thoughts are with you!

This was the Albion Mill Christmas gig, where we were their chosen charity and what a brilliant evening we had just before Christmas.
We spent a night with the Albion Mills boys and were transported back into the brilliance of classic rock and pop of the late 60’s and early 70’s. Local business also supported the event by donating raffle prizes.
The boys managed to raise £686.01, which is an amazing amount from one evening. On behalf of all at KFF and the young people we aim to support and their families, a big thank you!
Here are a few photos from the evening! (click to enlarge)
All at Krissy & Friends Foundation would like to thank everyone who has supported us throughout the year by either turning up at one of our events, raising money for us, donating to us or buying our merchandise. We have had a fun packed 2015 and look forward to giving you all a detailed report of the year in April 2016, after our financial year end.
We have many things planned for 2016; for example, following our 2 marathon runners whilst they train to undertake an amazing and gruelling run. Our 2nd Multi-Pub Music Quiz event, with everyone saying how much fun they had how could we not do it again! Our 2nd annual birthday bash, we invite everyone to come and celebrate the financial year end and allows us to say thank you to you all personally.
Prior to these we have our first BIG TASK… getting our ‘referral committee’ up and running. There is still time to complete application forms to join this vital team. Once this team is in place we will be ready to start working with the young people and families within our community who need our help. We are all so excited.
Finally, we wouldn’t have been able to achieve what we have this year without your support and help. On behalf of everyone at KFF… A MASSIVE thank you!
Also, keep your eyes peeled over the next few days as we’ve got some more updates on recent events.
