Putting the fun in fundraising…

This month we’ve got 2 volunteers running some fantastic activities to raise money for CALM Africa outreach work through CFU. Later in June, there will be two events full of fun for the family and fundraising for families in Uganda who need a helping hand.

On Saturday 21st June, volunteer Sherry will be hosting the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party in Bournemouth. Friends and families will be joining together for a fun-filled day of food, drinks and music with brilliant raffle prizes to be won. Sherry is running this activity to raise money for a healthcare fund at CALM Africa. The money raised will be used to fund medical care and first aid supplies needed during outreach work, where children and families living in poor conditions would otherwise struggle to receive care.

The following week, on Friday 27th June, supporter of CFU Dan Hope is hosting the Lawyers vs Cafcass cricket match at Cookridge Cricket Club in Leeds. There will be a BBQ at the event, making it a fun evening for families in the area. Dan is leading a programme at CALM Africa, along with SFAC charity, to provide support to child-headed households. This event will be raising money to help the programme deliver health & social care to children living in poverty without any parents or adults to take care of them. A huge thank you from us to the lawyers and Cafcass for taking part in this event to support the work in Uganda. If you’re in the Leeds area on that day, feel free to pop along!

Our AGM is being held after these events on Saturday 28th June and we look forward to discussing what other future opportunities there will be over the coming year for CFU to help CALM Africa’s work!
