Lichfield Ladies Awarded National Fundraising Award
Lichfield Ladies Circle were delighted to be awarded a trophy for 'Most amount of money raised for charity' at their national conference in Harrogate last weekend. In total over £15000 was raised though events such as a masquerade ball, making and selling Christmas wreaths, organising a gruelling charity challenge day and completing a exhilerating skydive. Donations have been made to the ERBS Palsy Society, CRUSE, the Alzeihmer Society, The Stroke Club, Saxon Hill School,as well as The Teenage cancer Trust (in response to Stephens Story), Ward 15 at Birmingham Childrens Hospital and Cancer Research UK. Susan Davies, Lichfield Ladies Circle Chair said that she was delighted with the award and recognition at a national level. 'The last 12 months have been fantastic, all the ladies have put huge amount of effort into their fundraising activities and are delighted to be supporting such wonderful causes'. Lichfield Ladies Circle are now focused on coming up with more ideas in which to raise money for further local charities whilst having fun at the same time.
