Brendoncare’s Fundraising Star of the Month: September

This month’s Fundraising Star of the Month is someone for whom one fundraising event over the hot August Bank Holiday weekend was not enough! We would like to say a huge ‘Congratulations’ to our amazing fundraising star, Debbie Boothroyd!

Debbie told us why raising money for Brendoncare was so important to her:

“Over the August Bank Holiday, I zoomed down the exhilarating Bournemouth Pierzip and then the next day walked 35km from our care home in Alton to our Central Office in Winchester. Bearing in mind it was the hottest bank holiday weekend on record, the walk in particular was extremely challenging!! I have so far raised £150, but hope this may go up a bit further.

The reason why I took on these two events is because I work for Brendoncare and see everyday how vital fundraising is to our services and all the people who rely on them. I know the money I have raised will go towards making a difference to the lives of older people, and I will hopefully have also raised awareness for this incredible charity.

I found the support for the events FANTASTIC!! From a cheer squad on the beach during the Pierzip, to colleagues setting up much-needed refreshment stations during the walk, the support has been amazing. A particular shout out to the wonderful Yasmin for arranging both these brilliant events!

Brendoncare has a great selection of events over the next year – everyone should get involved and challenge themselves to make a difference!”

We are sending you many congratulations Debbie for completing these two events and for being our September Fundraising Star of the Month. On behalf of everyone at Brendoncare, thank you so much for everything you do to support us. We couldn’t do it without you!
