Jazmine’s turn this week! It just goes to show a few ideas can go a long way! With help from others and using her initiative, Jazmine is already onto her final balance payment for 2017! Gathering donations from friends and family and showing you don’t always have to hold a HUGE fundraiser, lots of small ideas and events can add up quickly too! Spare a few minutes and read about Jazmine’s journey so far….
My name is Jazmine and I have nearly raised all my funds. So far I have done a sponsored bike ride from Scarborough to Whitby which was 44miles. We filled in four sponsor sheets, my mum took one to work, my step dad took one and my nanna took one. I also took one to my dad’s in Wales where we had big garden party and everyone sponsored generously, we managed to raise just over £600!
Next we did a tombola stall at a local event at a farm nearby, I had called and asked the organiser if I could do a stall and explained what I was fundraising for and he said yes straight away! I had lots of prizes donated by local shops. We raised £156.
My mum and I offered to litter pick at two-day music event called Staxtonbury which is held every year. I spoke to the owner and he loved what I was fundraising for, he gave us free tickets to litter pick and collect donations. I dressed up as Daisy Duck and Minnie Mouse, it was very tiring but I had a collection bucket and we raised £430.
I have done little things too like car washing and bake sales. My biggest help was my weekend job. I work at a bakery in the nearby town which I love, I have worked nearly every weekend and all through the holidays. I worked lots of extra hours and my bank balance just kept rising! We also had a make-up night, my mums friend works for Arbonne and offered to host a party and give us her commission that she made that night, it was a really good night! I put on nibbles and my mums friends came, we made £65.
I have about £500 left to raise! Im going to keep fundraising to pay for my kit and injections.
I’m so excited for this trip!
