Brendoncare’s Fundraising Star(s) of the Month: August

Brendoncare’s Fundraising Star(s) of the Month: August

This month we are recognising the outstanding support of two amazing fundraisers who have exceeded their target and have also shown great passion for Brendoncare on their journey to completing the iconic British 10K. It's Lasantha Wijeyawickrama and Anastasia Demetriou!

Lasantha and Anastasia told us why it was so important to them to raise money for Brendoncare, and how they set about achieving their target.

“In July we both took on the British 10K race through the streets of Central London to raise money for Brendoncare. Together we raised a total of £535 which we are very happy with. We fundraised through asking lots of friends and family and incorporated the fun, competitive game of ‘Guess the Time’ which worked really well. 

"We are both employees of Brendoncare and see first hand the importance of fundraising and the difference it makes to those who rely on our services. We know that a little really can go along way so if that is help with activity costs for one of the friendship clubs or a piece of specialist equipment at one of the homes we know that it will have a huge benefit.

"We both received great support and a positive experience in leading up to and on the day of the event. Having this made the whole process a lot easier and enjoyable!

"We thoroughly enjoyed the whole process of the event and would recommend anyone who is thinking of signing up for a challenge event to consider fundraising for Brendoncare!”.


Yasmin Achilles, Brendoncare's Community and Events Fundraising Officer said: "Congratulations to Lasantha and Anastasia on being our August Fundraising Stars of the Month and on behalf of everyone at Brendoncare, thank you so much for everything you do to support us. We couldn’t do it without you!"
