Cash for Kids is the official charity of CFM Radio and provides grants to help disabled and disadvantaged children in Cumbria & South West Scotland, so it was great for David, Alison Allen and myself to attend the 12thannual Christmas Charity Lunch at Carlisle Racecourse in aid of the Cash for Kids appeal.
We were greeted in reception by a group of young children from Bolton C of E Primary School singing Christmas Carols and we then enjoyed a bucks fizz reception before having a delicious three course meal.
David Allen was asked to join Robbie Dee on stage and accept a special thank you gift for all the support that our firm has provided throughout the year for the charity. David Allen has been a keen supporter of the Cash for Kids charity from the beginning and this year we were delighted to be able to support again by enabling 68 children and their carers to go to Camelot Theme Park for the day.
The fundraising went on throughout the day, beginning with a game of stand up roulette, where Dene Marshall from H&H Reed Printers won a fantastic prize from Michael King Jewellery. A game of Pass the Parcel provided more fun and prizes and an Auction and Raffle also ensured further funds were raised for the charity.
There was some great live entertainment and Robbie Dee from CFM kept everyone amused during the event.
A great day and hopefully there was a great deal of money raised for this worthy cause.
