Letter to Margaret Pinkman from Lesley Kerr assistant Fundraiser CLIC
Ceilidh - St Thomas Aquin's Ceilidh Band
It was super of you to come in with the wonderful cheque for £1016.80 raised by your Ceilidh. We
really appreciated the way you took the time toorganise your friends in to having this lovely evening for CLIC.
Both Evie and I were so taken with the lovely family atmosphere and good music which made it a very memorable evening.
Please say our special thanks to Marion, Allan and all the Band who played so well and set such a joyous rhythm that my feet start tapping when I recollect their playing. We have kept the Band's card - watch out!
As you know our work is entirely dependent on voluntary contributions and your event will really make a difference to families with a child with either cancer or leukaemia. £700 funds a CLIC
Homecare Nurse for a week and we hope to have three CLIC Nurses at the Royal Hospital for Sick Kids by the end of this year. It costs just under £400 to accommodate a family in CLIC Villa for a month, so I hope this helps to show how the money you raised will be spent.
With many thanks to you and your friends for this tremendous support.
