On the road to the Thames Path Challenge with Natalie Zinck
Natalie tells us about her fundraising for the Thames Path challenge in September.
On Friday, my fellow walkers and I had a “race night” at our local cricket club to support Dreams Come True and the other 9 charities being supported for the Thames Path Challenge. It was a really good night and we managed to raise just over £100 for each of the charities.
Unfortunately as gambling was involved, the event wasn’t open to children so three very special little ladies took it upon themselves to raise some money.
Fleur and Tansie Davies along with their cousin Pip Davies carefully researched the charities involved and decided they would like to raise money for Dreams Come True. So they spent all day on Saturday making every kind of cupcake imaginable, rocky road and teacakes so they could sell them at their parents’ nursery (Davies Brothers Nursery in Burnham) on Sunday.
I popped into see them on and was really impressed with their enthusiasm, the stall (complete with signs drawn by the girls) and by the fact that not one single person made it past their stall without one of the Davies girls explaining that they were raising money to help “make the dreams of poorly children come true” – everyone bought at least one very modestly priced cake (50p each!). By the end of the day they had raised a whopping £100 for Dreams Come True!
A great effort from everyone, thank you girls!
