A month of fundraising

September has been a fantastic month of fundraising for Joshua, with huge thanks going to Tamsin Bradley, Berry Butler and Good Luck to Nikki Lee.

Last weekend Tamsin Bradley ran the Stockholm 1/2 Marathon for Joshua and raised a fantastic £310. Her motivation?

a. She wanted to go to Stockholm
b. She's turning 40
c. She wants to get fit

And as she was covering the cost of the Marathon she thought she would raise some money for Joshua at the same time - Thank you Tamsin!

Berry Butler, one of Joshua's trustees, held a cracking Golf day, with the Rotary Club of Coulsdon, at the Surry Downs Golf Club in aid of Joshua this month. Golfers stared their day with a warm cup of coffee and a bacon buttie before hitting the course in some brilliant sunshine. With a slideshow from Malawi playing all day everyone was reminded how fortunate they are and the day raised £900 - Thank you Berry for you fantastic efforts and thanks to everyone who teed off on the day.

Good luck to Nikki Lee whose fashion fundraiser for Joshua and Save the Children is this Sunday
