Easter 2016 Fundraising

Congratulations to all the winners of the FDM Easter Raffles – The Easter Hamper was won by our Social Club member Ada. The Staff & Patrons of the Hare & Hounds Pub in Rothwell held a “Pick the Wining Number” Raffle with a Giant Easter Egg being won by the Armitage Family from Rothwell.  The Rothwell & District Seniors Club held a raffle and the winner of the Giant Easter Egg has kindly donated it, on behalf of the Seniors Club, to Hannah House in Rothwell.

The total amount we have rasied was £120 and this money will be used by FDM to continue the work we do in supporting the local communities.  The Trustees would like to say a Big Thank You to everyone who supported FDM.

Sainsburys Bag pack

On Sunday 3rd April 2016 trustees and volunteers from FDM were Bag Packing at Sainsburys, Colton.  In total a massive £210.53 was raised in just 2 hours.  Further fundraising events and bag packs are planned for later in the year and if you can assist in any way (just a hour of your time would be greatly appreciated) then please contact the FDM office on 0113 2889000 for more details.
