December 2018 - Hats for Candlelighters
Esme and Noah have been raising money for Candlelighters charity in Leeds; https://www.candlelighters.org.uk/.
Candlelighters is our nominated charity for 2018 where their Mum works, and Esme and Noah took it on themselves to draw pictures and then sell with all proceeds going to Candlelighters. They raised £20 doing this. Esme then went on, with her Great Granny (88) to take orders for children’s knitted hats. Esme and Noah were the models for the hats, and these were promoted across Mum's work and team. We took 23 orders in 3 days!
Great Granny knitted the hats, and Esme worked on sourcing some sponsorship through a local wool company King Cole. Attached is the initial letter Esme wrote to ask for any wool contributions, and her letter thanking them for their support. There is also a letter from the Director of Commercial Services at the University of Leeds thanking them for their hard work.
Esme and Noah have now raised over £150, and still going!
