Posted on


charlie-charges-on finl sideways logoCharlie Charges On is just over a year old (February), we are amazed at our achievements and extremely happy with what a successful first year we had. We would like to thank everyone who has helped us.

We took all our strength to set up  and would like to thank our friends and family for all the support some are also our Charlie Charges On Team - Pierre, Chantal, Clair, Sam, Emma, Lisa and Paula. Thank you for your long phone calls of encouragement when Karen was overwhelmed and didn't think she could do this especially trying to tell our story and stay strong. We appreciate every minute of your free time you gave up to help make Charlie Charges on a Success.

Our dream was to hold a Ball in memory of Charlie so our friends helped make it happen, Emma hosted a pamper evening raising £370.51 Louisa and Clair helped run 2 stalls at a car boot sale and donated all £182 profit. Sam did Hat selfies at work raising £111.45 and we sold cakes at Broadfields school fete raising £132 this allowed us to book our charity ball. Everyone really worked hard together to get the deposit and we did it and went on to raise over £10,00 from the ball.

Thank you to every single person who held fundraisers this year, each listed below 

Thank you to Rhys and Writings Hill Primary school for holding a hat non uniform day and donating £316.20 

Thanks to Emily and Fairytails nursery for raising £80 making and selling hats.

Thank you May for making it look amazing.

Thank you for all prize donations our events would not be so successful without these, especially  our friend Clee who works at Hy-Pro ltd they donated enough Bikes and Scooters for our events to last up until our Mad Hatters Tea party this year.

Author Chrissi Hart dedicating her new book to Charlie, perfect for keeping his memory alive and we were very choked that she did this, thank you.

We really couldn't do all this without the support and to all our friends/family/supporters thank you for supporting our events and help making them a success.

Thank you all for helping keep our darling boys memory alive.

With all your help Charlie Charges On was able to help fund way over £16,000 of Brain Tumour Research last year smashing our £5,000 target for the year.
