Charitable Trusts For The United Bristol Hospitals
Posted by stuff4sam on October 18, 2006
When we started fundraising in December 2005 we had no idea of how or where to start. Having spoken to a couple of charities we ended up chatting to Andrew Monk and Jane Thomas at Above and Beyond, a registered charity representing the Charitable Trusts of United Bristol Hospitals and specifically the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit where Sam has been so well cared for.
This has meant a lot especially when we first started and only had 8 weeks to raise 3k and no clue how to go about it! As it turned out we raised 8k. Not bad going but, the important thing for us was to know that behind the scenes the funds were being looked after and channelled in the right direction.
We would also like to say a big thank you to William Booth who helped on the logistics and worked closely with Andrew to figure all this out.
Andrew, William and Jane, your help has been invaluable and without it we wouldn’t be where we are today.
