Jane Mercer and her dear friend Chris, who we hadn’t met until last weekend have been busy organising fundraising events for us these past two weekends and have raised over £800! Jane Mercer, a former VSO volunteer got in touch before Christmas last year after having heard, from a mutual friend, about our fundraising campaign. She said that she had some ideas but it wouldn’t be until the new year. Touching I thought and then it left my mind. 3 weeks ago I then hear that she and Chris, had organised a pop up cafe and ceilidh here in Oxford as part of her leaving ‘do’. Jane has recently become a grandmother and so she is relocating to Eastbourne.
Both events were so heart warming.
Thank you everyone for your support and for making this journey something that is also a reminder of the gift of friendship and the beauty of humanity.
