Fundraising - 2020 - Speen Helping Hospices (SHH)

Speen Helping Hospices and 2020

SHH had planned a series of events for fundraising in 2020 including a Pamper Evening, Spring Lunch at the Horse Trust in Speen, a Comedy Night and a Car Boot Sale.

Fortunately the Pamper Evening went ahead in March before lockdown began.

We were approached by a few people asking if they were planning to fundraise for the hospices by making and selling face masks. We replied that we would be very happy to do this if there was a reasonable demand. There certainly was! By early July we had sold 200 masks and raised £1,000. Up to November 2020 the amount is over £5,000.

In May, local artist Joanna Brownridge donated one of her paintings “Mist” - an original framed 90cm x 65cm. Local photographer and Jazz Musician Martin Hart produced prints that Joanna signed and tickets were sold. The second prize was a signed and framed print of the original.

In early July the draw took place and this event raised over £3,000.

On the 23rd August The Martin Hart Quartet played for a couple of hours at a socially distanced event at the Great Hampden Cricket Ground.

Over £1,250 was raised at Jazz in The Park

As we could not hold our annual Christmas Market in the Chapel Hall as usual this year, we had all the plans in place to have a socially distanced open air continental style Christmas Market for the 14th November in marquees at Speen Playing Fields. Due to lockdown 2, this event had to be cancelled. Not to be outdone we launched an online shop and since its inception in early November a number of local businesses have been added, who are all donating 10% of their sales through the website to the hospices.

A couple of pop up stalls were arranged including one on the 19th December the day of the The Sassy Santas fun run and The Christmas Hamper draw __

The final profit for the Christmas Market which includes not just the On-line shop but also the Hamper, Sassy Santa's and the Carol Singing is £6,448.69.

The total raised for 2020 is £17,604. With the cushion we had at the start of the year the total in our account is £19,339.01.

On your behalf we are now able to donate £4,500 to each of the four Hospices, leaving a cushion to cover our overheads (e.g insurance).

This is our best year ever! Thank you all for your support.

We will provide full details of each fundraiser and our overheads in the next Speen North Dean News.
