At our last AGM we asked all you DA members to dig deep in your pockets to help our two nominated Chairman’s charities, and didn’t you do well!
The two charities chosen were Zoe’s Place, the incredible baby hospice in West Derby Liverpool and The Whitechapel Project for Helping the Homeless also in Liverpool.
As Peter has just posted, today we presented a cheque to Zoe’s Place for £569.19 !!! Carole Kirkham, fundraising manager for Zoe’s was very grateful to everyone who contributed and sends their very grateful thanks. It takes an incredible amount of money for them to continue doing their caring, and often distressing work. Picture attached is Carol with Martin and Peter, both clearly indicating their football team preferences!
The other charity is The Whitechapel Project and we were able to buy a considerable amount of essential toiletries from cash donations as well as 25 bags of warm clothing, sleeping bags, scarves etc., picture of the first batch taken at Dale Hey Farm weekend and the last picture showing Pete handing over just some of our gifts and donations.
Come to this years AGM at Lydiate Parish Hall Valentine’s Weekend on February 16/19th to find out who we will be supporting next time.
