Fabulous fundraising in the Midlands thanks to Emma Mosley
Emma knows all too well the impact of a brain tumour diagnosis, for she received her own earlier this year. So during #BrainTumourAwarenessMonth, to celebrate TEAFEST, Emma pulled out all the stops – hosting two fantastic fundraisers to raise money to support people with brain tumours.
First was the Rock Choir Rehearsal at Newburgh Primary School:
Some had made cakes and biscuits, and I served teas, coffees and cakes in the break. There was also a raffle and I sold some hand-knitted goodies too. It was a great pleasure to listen to their singing (see my Facebook page to hear a wonderful version of Jess Glynne’s I’ll be there). The harmonies were a joy and the words were so appropriate. I got quite emotional when they performed ‘Don’t you worry ’bout a thing’ by Incognito as this has always been a firm favourite on my motivational playlists! I might have shed a tear when sharing my story. Even though I have always been comfortable with an audience, this time it was a little different as it’s not fictional or about someone/something else!
Thanks to the amazing generosity of the members of Rock Choir Warwick, we raised £212.74 at this event!
The second was a TEAFEST celebration in the form of a family fun day in Warwick:
Ever since we moved to Warwick, we know we made the right move. Every single day I can clearly see what a wonderful community we live in. This was proved even more at the Charity Family Afternoon that I held at Chase Meadow Community Centre, the second of the ‘Teafest’ events for brainstrust this week. My fiance Carl and daughter Little C were on hand to help out too. Little C even had the title of ‘chief helper’ and did a great job in encouraging people to buy things with a smile on her face.
There were many raffle prizes won, including a glamping holiday voucher at Winchcombe Farm which one lucky winner received! The children loved the charity ‘playdate’ and the adults seemed to really be enjoying the cake and general buzz. Thanks to the community of Chase Meadow, this event raised £250.10. I am absolutely astounded and proud!
The total amount that Emma has raised is now at over £650! Read more about these fantastic events on Emma’s blog, here.
