Have a Heart Appeal fundraiser in Chard
10:00am Thursday 28th February 2013 in Somerset
FUNDS for the Have a Heart Appeal will be boosted next month thanks to the efforts of Samantha Fooks.
Samantha is holding a cake stall and charity raffle at The Unit on Chard Business Park on Sunday, March 24, from 11.30am to 2.30pm.
“All prizes have been donated by local businesses and I have 20 companies involved,” she said. “All sales from my stall will go 100% to the charity. I will also be holding a lucky dip raffle for children.”
The Have a Heart Appeal raises money to make seriously ill children’s wishes come true.
Samantha has arranged for businesses to have stalls at the fundraising event to give visitors plenty to do.
A bouncy castle and face painting are also on offer at the event to help boost the total amount raised.
Samantha added: “Waitrose has very kindly donated cakes for my stall, which I will add to the others being baked by my team of seven cake-bakers.”
