FUNDRAISING EVENTS COMING UP
The NHS spent around £500,000 trying to save Ruby. But effective treatments for relapsed T-cell blood cancer just haven't been found yet. So we're hoping to eventually raise a similar amount to fund research to find more effective and kinder treatments. We set up Ruby's Live Kindly Live Loudly fund with CCLG in August 2020 - and by August 2021 we'd already raised £100,000, which is amazing! Fast forward to May 2023 an we've passed £200k.
We've had an amazing array of fundraising activities so far - everything from online dinner parties and comedy nights to sponsored skydives, wingwalks and headshaves. You can read about previous fundraisers here. If you'd like to do a fundraising event for Ruby's fund, please get in touch (drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org)! CCLG run various fundraising events including skydives, abseils, 3-Peaks / Lake District Challenges, which you can sign-up for to raise money for Ruby's fund. Or you can do your own thing! We can give you t-shirts, badges and postcards to support your fundraising efforts and we'll also share what you're doing via social media.
We've got the following events coming up:
Ruby's infants school, Rosemead Pre-Prep, are supporting her fund with a variety of activities, including sales of pin badges, books and cocoa bombs, and a sponsored 'acts of kindness' week. Details here.
