    From all of us here at Krissy & Friends, we wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone who gave their time, money and support throughout the year. The money raised enabled us to support so many who needed our help and we couldn't have done it without you!!

    Great work everyone involved in the Steamboat fundraiser on Saturday, we raised a staggering £1,577.35!

    We have had a surprise donation from 'tpp' because Alexander Ratcliffe nominated us to receive his competition winnings of £2,000 so we will be banking a whopping £3,577.35!!

    The work that can be done and the difference that can be made with this money is enormous. We will share where the money goes throughout this year.

    ...

    There will be other events for you to have a great time and know that you are helping others too, we look forward to seeing you.

    Thank you for planning, playing, attending, spending and understanding.

    Just a quick message from Kat!

    "It is 1:10 in the morning, I'm exhausted and elated. We have spent the last 12 hours with great music, great company, lots of laughs and for most people that would be enough, but the beautiful folk at the Steamboat Tavern tonight also happened to raise money to help kids they don't even know! Every quid hard earned and kindly given to provide therapy through music to children with life changing illness, injury or diagnosis. While the number elves count the pounds and pence, we are counting our blessings, filled with punk pride and moved by your generosity!

    To you all, THANK YOU!!!"

    This was the write-up in the local paper. I've also heard back from the hospital who have said that the equipment is fantastic and has been very beneficial to all . Well done everyone. Thank you so much.

    Young patients at Ipswich Hospital are getting lots of joy and fun from some new state-of-the-art sound and lighting equipment thanks to a charity.
