In 2005 following help from the Proteus Syndrome Foundation and Tracey Whitewood-Neals input, i decided that i wanted to give something back to this charity and here is were my fundraising began:
So after raffles, sharks swims, buckets of water being thrown at people, and asking for donations, around £700 was raised.
At the same time in 2007 along with Sue we held a cake stall and tombola and raised around £200 for PSF.
Another fundraiser evening went really well. My friend Rachel who is a music teacher organised an evening where her students sang songs, there was also a raffle, music quiz and ticket sales. We made a total of £575. Many thanks for Rachel, her mum and dad and everyone else who helped make the night a success.
Since then my friend Ella Fontaine did an Opera and Brass Band evening in aid of the Proteus Syndrome Foundation.
Over £200 was made for the charity.
My fundraiser in September 2010 was called Mandy’s Mile.
This was to raise money for my local hospital (Accrington Victoria Hospital) who helped me when I was recovering from my amputation.
I managed to raise over £2,000
