Thank you David Howell,Mayor of Bideford

A big thank you goes out to our very own Chair of Trustees and Mayor of Bideford, David Howell for his fundraising efforts during his term in office.

David handed over a cheque for a whopping £6435.00.

His fundraising adventures included:

In January David rowed 2km, ran 3km and cycled 10km in one hour in the gym and raised over £1000. His triathlon was supported by freinds, collegues and family.

A Mayor’s dinner was held at Royal Hotel Bideford and it was the Annual Mayor’s Dinner. Local guests and dignitaries attended a two course dinner, a speech was made about Families for Children by me, Patrons film was shown and then a charity auction was held that raised just over £3000 for the charity.

We are extremely grateful for David’s efforts fundraising and nominating Families for Children.  The money raised will be a welcome support to the newly launched Centre of Excellence in Adoption Support Services.
