Sunday 3rd October saw 110 people from in and around Andover gather together at St Mary Bourne village hall; enjoying a delicious cooked breakfast and raffle, in aid of leading disability charity Enham Trust.
Supported by members of the public and local businesses alike, the event raised over £700 for the charity – giving everyone involved the chance, not only to enjoy a morning of good, local food and fun with friends, but to learn more about the Trust’s vital work across the country; supporting disabled people in the cornerstone areas of their lives.
Organiser of this annual event, Jo Boxer, commented:
“We were delighted that all the proceeds went to Enham Trust to support the great work they do to enable disabled people to live the life they choose. “We worked with members of the Trust to organise, promote, and shop for the event. Camilla Ahl from the fundraising team at Enham Trust was successful in persuading local businesses to support the event and secured donations of food and some fantastic raffle prizes.
“Thank you for helping to make this event so successful.”
Similarly, Camilla Ahl, Events Fundraiser at Enham Trust remarked:
“A big ‘thank you’ to everyone involved in St Mary Bourne’s Big Breakfast! It’s thanks to events such as these – the generosity of local businesses and communities – that we’re able to continue our work, and ensure as many disabled people as possible live independently.”
All funds raised will go towards the charity’s nation-wide cause; supporting over £7,500 disabled people to live lives of choice, control, and independence through numerous housing, care, and employment & skills provisions.
