It’s been an exciting few months for Samuel’s Smile, also extremely busy which is brilliant!
In March we went to an event hosted by St Patrick’s Charity Day Ball which is a charity set up to help other charities and they choose three charities a year to help out and give a big donation to. Samuel’s Smile was lucky to be amongst the three charities that would receive the help from them. We went to the function where they reached their goals of raising over £1,000,000 within the past ten years they have been set up!
May the 9th we received £19,500.00!!!!! We still can’t believe that we got chosen never mind getting this much money to help all the RARE kids, we cannot thank you enough St Patrick’s Day Charity Day Ball for choosing us and making all the SMILES possible for us to grant them!
Samuel’s Smile took 25 families to see Disney on Ice on the 2nd of May too! To see all the kids so excited, happy and forgetting about their illness for a while and watching their favourite Disney characters in front of them…their faces were a picture! Almost all the kids dressed up and wore fancy dress which included many of the Disney characters, were also standing up, dancing and singing along it was amazing too! These are just a few pictures from the day and this was magical for sure.
We also had our 2nd Annual Sponsored Walk from Clydebank to Balloch on May the 22nd. 90 people gathered together to ‘Walk for a SMILE’ Was so great to see so many people all SMILING and helping us out. We are still gathering sponsored money so should know soon how much we raised but it was a brilliant day as the sun was shining and was also great fun! Thank you to all the SMILERS who turned up and thanks for helping us make a RARE kids SMILE!
The next event we are taking part in is Tough Mudder and then climbing Ben Nevis for Samuel’s Smile in July, hopefully we will see some of you there and if you haven’t signed up yet just head over to our events page and register!
We are making plans for the near future for all the RARE kids .
Keep SMILING everyone
