"I organised two mini fund raising events through my work as a teacher.
The first was a ‘bake and sell’ where children aged between 4-7 baked and then sold the proceeds in the afternoon for FISCH.
The other was learning about mission and justice in RE lesson. Children brought in ‘free trade’ goods and we then used them to bake banana bread and chocolate biscuits to sell. We looked at the fisch photos of children who could go to school once someone had funded their uniforms so our hope was to fund this.
We managed to pay for 2 uniforms from the proceeds which was a good surprise!"
Recently St Saviour’s Church in Guildford held a Charity Quiz Fundraiser. The Quiz was a fun evening and a great success, with Lissie of the UK Team being able to talk a bit about FISCH.
The monies raised from the Quiz were split between two charities, one of which was FISCH! A whopping £1400 was donated to each charity!
Not only that, but many people were interested in learning more about FISCH, and several people volunteered sponsorship for some of our FISCH Kids who are in Higher Education – for instance, Happy, who is studying Social Welfare Development at Certificate Level (the first year out of three) now has her financial fees covered for the rest of the academic year.
What wonderful provision!
Carolyn of the UK FISCH Team held a
birthday fundraiser towards uniform and
stationary supplies for Kids.
We reported that her kind friends and family raised enough funds to provide 50 Children with uniforms and stationary, providing even more Children with these necessities.
Without these, they cannot go to School, so this has been a real blessing. Thanks again Carolyn!
