Diary - Friday 5th of June
SATURDAY 31st of MAY
we had our very first charity walk which was from Clydebank to Balloch - 15 miles, we ended up getting over 170 walkers and other people who were helping out as marshals and at the water breaks etc. IT was such an amazing day, the rain was pelting down right untill we blew the whistle to start the walk and then the sun came out and was splitting the sky! It was such a great day had by all and overwhelming to have friends and families from young kids to pensioners and everybody showing their support for Samuel's Smile, helping raise all the funds that will make it possible for Samuel's Smile to start sharing. Throughout the planning for the walk we had people donating; the fruit, the water, the balloons, special soaps for the end and so many more things...i could not believe the genorosity of people out there that want to help.
FRIDAY 15th MAY
Well a lot has happened in the past few weeks! Samuel's Smile was the charity of choice at the Daily Record Our Heroes Awards. We were there alongside many celebrities like; Gordon Strachan, cast of Rivercity, Rebecca fergueson and so many more exciting people and of course the people who were nominated for the awards! My wee friend Eilidh Duncan who is a kid with a RARE disease won the Little Hero award with another two well deserving children. So what happened is they have a raffle on the night and everyone puts £10 in the envelope and you win prizes so dinner and a night for two in the Hilton, Dinner for two in Mr Singhs there was loads of prizes and they all got donated so every penny went to my chairty and we ended up raising £3,500!!! Could not believe it and it is still unbelievable to think that the charity got chosen and will be able to help so many kids SMILE!!
