Alfe’s Cause have enjoyed a busy few months helping to create special memories for our charity children and their families including two brothers who we thought deserved a special surprise after the younger brother recently completed chemotherapy. Special thanks to Just Party and Kettering McQueen for making the surprise so amazing.
None of this would be possible without donations and we are delighted to have been chosen as the local charity for Northampton TSB Weston Favell and Abington Street branches. Not only do these opportunities provide us with funding but also publicity to let more people within Northamptonshire know who we are and what we can offer should they ever need our support.
In September (Childhood Cancer Awareness month) we once again ran our “Find a bear and be aware” bear hunt which proved popular with people searching for bears around Northampton town centre. Here is one of our finders.
Since the summer our monthly meetings have included a music therapy workshop, a visit from Dave of RaptorXotics Falconry and we most recently went ice skating where one of our children skated on the ice even though she finds it painful to walk. Her’s and all of the children’s determination is incredible!
In December we will be visiting the local pantomime and thanks to the generosity of the Disney Store through In Kind Direct we will be presenting the children coming along with a Mickey Mouse toy.
