Groups and businesses help Kemp on way to target
WYRE Forest residents and groups have been helping Kemp Hospice towards the £30,000 target for its Children’s Appeal.
The appeal, in association with The Shuttle, hopes to raise the money to support bereaved children and their families in Wyre Forest by delivering a variety of programmes.
Activities such as a craft fair organised by Sue Williams, of Stourport, raised £215 towards the appeal and The Knoll School in Kidderminster collected £195 at their school nativity play.
St George’s Church coffee shop, in Radford Avenue, Kidderminster, has donated £500 from its popular coffee morning.
The mornings take place every Friday from 10am to 2pm.
Cooks Garden Centre opened their nursery to the public over a weekend with all entry fees being donated for Kemp’s Children’s Appeal. A total of £1,000 was given to the cause.
A table top sale was held at Cookley Village Hall and £30 was donated and bridal shop the Wedding Rooms, in Kidderminster, held a special event for its 25th anniversary.
Employees held a raffle at the event for the appeal with raised £151.
Kemp Hospice is appealing for more individuals, groups and companies to come up with fundraising ideas.
To raise money contact Kemp’s fundraising team on 01562 756000 or visit kemphospice.org.uk to request a fundraising pack.
More than 80 children and young people have already been supported but the demand for help continues to rise.
