AVA's fundraising event a huge success!


Ashfield Voluntary Action held a fundraising event on Tuesday 8th October to raise money for its Twiddle Mitts campaign. Initially the idea was to hold a raffle to raise money for some labels to be sewn onto our Twiddle Mitts, but the idea just grew. 


We had a cake stand filled with delicious treats, a 'prize every time' Tombola, a 'guess the name of the teddy' competition, beautiful hand-crafted baubles for sale, a hula hoop competition, a raffle and handmade cards for sale. 


Our volunteers did a fantastic job on the day, their enthusiasm and passion for the project drew people to the stall and created a real buzz of interest. A very big thank you to Sheila, Jenny, Stephen, Kath, Doreen and Hilda who helped on the day to raise an impressive £320.  


Thank you also to everyone who donated raffle prizes and cakes - we certainly have some talented bakers and resourceful fakers! People were really generous and eager to support this lovely cause. 


As well as buying labels for our Twiddle Mitts, thanks to eveyone's amazing efforrts and obvious flair for fundraising we are now also able to buy wool, buttons, beads, ribbons and charms and so on for our Twiddle Mitts.


We always need dedicated volunteers to knit, crochet and sew for us, if you want to get involved in this, or any of our other projects, please contact Samantha Clarke on 01623 555 551 or email lifestyle@ashfieldvoluntaryaction.org.uk and we look forward to hearing from you.
