We would like you to join us in celebrating our 2nd year fundraising for local families, at our 2nd birthday party.
This is not a fundraising event but is our way of saying thank you for your part in making this past year and our journey so successful!
It’s family friendly so please bring your loved ones with you, and it’ll be taking place on Sunday 8th May 2016 at The Steamboat Tavern from 4.30pm till 7pm.
Follow the event here on our Facebook page.
We hope you can make it!
As we said before, last week (Thursday 23rd of April) we handed over our cheque of what we have raised in a year to EACH, and what a brilliant, emotive afternoon we had at EACH.
With all your continued support over the past year, we managed to raise our target and present £5,000 to the music therapy department at EACH. Attached is an image of that moment.
Thank you to the choir who sang beautifully, and Gemma who took the time to show us around the wonderful building and The Treehouse Garden. It was great to reminisce and return to the room where Kath and I (Krissy) first hatched the plan to start Krissy & Friends and wow, what a way we’ve come since then!
We also made it onto the EACH website, so you can head over there to read their article.
A big thank you to all of you who turned out to our Birthday event that also happened last Thursday. We hope you enjoyed celebrating with us and all got a piece of the Krissy & Friends cake! We are so proud and pleased of how far you’ve allowed us to come and we hope to see you again on our 2nd Birthday!
But if you couldn’t make it… once again, a huge thank you to everyone for your continued support. However big or small your contribution, every little bit helps and we are looking forward to the exciting events we have planned for this year so keep your eyes peeled for new information… Bring it on!! xox
Can you believe that Krissy & Friends is a year old already?!
With over £6,000 in the bank and a charitable status on the way, it is more than we could have ever hoped for! If ever there was a good excuse to celebrate, this is it!
With your support, you have made it possible for us to help so many families so we would love you to join us at The Steamboat Tavern on 23rd April 2015 from 17h00 to 20h00+. This will give us the opportunity to say a big THANK YOU to you and as many of our supporters as possible. Please invite anyone you know who has helped us to make this year such an incredible start for the Krissy & Friends Foundation.
For more details on the event, see our Facebook event.
We hope to see you there!
We recently held a meeting, so as promised, there is indeed news! SO BRACE YOURSELVES AS WE HAVE LOTS OF IT!
On the 23rd of April (just two weeks away!) will be a very special day for us as WE TURN ONE! Yep, it will be our first official Birthday! We will be meeting and handing over the money we have raised so far thanks to your kind donations to EACH and will be even closer to being a registered charity! We will follow this exciting day by a Birthday Bash in the late afternoon/evening. Details are still being finalised, but when they are, we will create an event ASAP and YOU ARE ALL INVITED! So make a memo of the date because we’d love to celebrate with you and shake all our loyal supporters’ hands!
In other exciting news, we can also confirm that we will be in partnership with the Beer Festival in Ipswich from 11 to 13 June. We have all sorts of plans up our sleeves which will be explained at a further date but for now, make a note these dates because we will be there and we want to see you there too! In fact we would love it if some of you become involved too. Is anyone interested in a one-off volunteer job? It will be great fun, and you can give as little or as much time as you want! If you are interested or at least want more information, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “BEER FEST VOLUNTEER” or go to our contact us page.
Finally, once again, many details still need to be sorted before we can give you the full facts but save the dates of Saturday July 18 and Sunday July 19 because due to the success of last year’s gig and family day, we will be doing the same again! On Saturday evening there will be a mix of bands with exciting raffles and yummy food while on Sunday there will be a family day with entertainment and games for all! We hope to have an even greater success with it than last year!
We understand these are brief descriptions, but they are all still works in progress but the dates are confirmed so we figured if we gave you all an early heads up, you can jot them in your diaries and come along. Thanks again for your continued support!
