Blacklight Run 2015 056

March at Alfe’s Cause

Time has flown so quickly since our last update. On the 7th March Alfe and a team of Volunteers manned a glow zone at the Blacklight Run whilst his Mum and other supporters took part in the run. £2,000 was donated to us from the event organisers for been the Northampton Blacklight Run official charity partners. On the 8th March the Duston Staff Runners ran various distances in the Milton Keynes Festival of Running and raised lots of funds for us. Each year we need around £10,000 to keep the charity running and developing and the staff runners efforts have definitely helped with working towards this figure.
Alfe and his Mum were recent guests at a blood donor ceremony and it was a real privilege for them to share their story with the donors and present the donors with the special awards for donating either 75 or 100 pints of blood.
We are continuing to have more families referred to the charity so families can have support from us as soon as possible.
