All at CCF would like to send a huge huge thank you to everyone who became involved in the Greenside Drift Street Party and even more so to the amazing Angela Hamilton for organizing the event in honor of the Charlie Cookson Foundation. An incredible £467.00p was raised in just one afternoon and we can’t thank everyone enough for their support no matter what the weather.
“You can’t guarantee the sun will shine in South Shields – and especially not in the summer. So holding a Street Party in June was always going to be a bit risky. But it takes more than a bit of water to dampen a Sand dancer’s spirits and when I woke up yesterday morning there was more than just a bit of water. In fact there was so much rain that more than one person asked if the Street Party was cancelled – like that was ever going to happen. Of course it wasn’t cancelled. All I needed was a couple of gazebo’s (to keep the food dry) and we were good to go”
South Shields MP Emma Lewell-Buck opened the event, the press turned up, the kids loved the face painting and games while the adults got quite competitive over the tombola and raffle.
Thank you once again Angela for the amazing support you give to our unique foundation. We shall be forever grateful for all the time, love and support you have given us over the many months you have been raising vital funds for CCF xxxxxxx
