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.

We just wanted to give you another update, and give a huge thank you to “Tap ‘N’ Tumbler” in Nottingham, as they held a raffle for us as part of their Halloween gig (which was headlined by our loyal supporters, “East Town Pirates”) and raised us a brilliant sum of £137.25!!
A big thank you once again to those involved and those who contributed!
We hope to see you all again soon! Keep following us for future updates and events.
On Sunday the 13th of September, we held our first “Battle of the Genres” 5-A-Side inflatable football tournament, and what a fabulous day we had. With chanting and cheering, a happy mayhem was had by all.
The “Battle of the Genres” Inflatable 5 A-Side Football Tournament has now been gallantly fought!
Who were the champions this year you wonder? This year the title goes to… The Metal Godz! Congratulations guys!
Thank you so much to everyone who turned out to fight for their music genre and came along to cheer everyone on.
A massive thanks to those that stepped in to play, especially those who joined in at the last minute.
As always, a huge thanks to the Steamboat Tavern for hosting us.
I can genuinely say that the smiles, laughter and friendly banter were everything we could have hoped for.
Thank you everyone for your continued support! Hope to see you again soon.
We had a wonderful day at the Grundisburgh show on the 18th of July where we met some great people and lovely families.
Thank you to everyone we met, the supporters who attended the event and to the GBCHS team for choosing us as one of their chosen charities for 2015. We look forward to some of their other events later.
