Strawberry Tea fundraiser A great success

The FHL group in Solihull lead by Steve and Jenny Roper have found an innovative way to hold their regular Strawberry Tea fundraiser during the Coronavirus outbreak.

A they couldn’t get together as they normally would they set up to run it whilst staying at home. They prepared nearly 50 packs of scones, strawberries, cream and cakes and delivered them to the homes of local supporters so that they can share a strawberry tea together whilst staying apart.

This fresh approach to a great event has not only helped keep the Solihull team together in these trying times but has also already been a very successful fundraiser bringing in donations totaling nearly £900 and the Solihull team are planning to do the same again next weekend to reach more of their friends and supporters.

If you have any suggestion for how we can continue our fundraising efforts during this difficult time or would like more suggestions for how you might fund raise in your area the please do not hesitate to get in touch.

At the second weekend of the Fundraiser the Solihull team again delivered their Strawberry teas to supporters around the area.  The remarkable effort raised more than £1745 much of which will be Gift Aided to deliver the most impact for our mission.
