We have reached £70k!

This week you may have seen Mae and her family in Doncaster Free Press, with the fabulous news that we have reached the £70k target! Huge thanks to all involved and we can’t believe we have cracked it.

Activity is still ongoing and many volunteers have offered their support with future events and sponsored activities. For this reason we have agreed to raise our target to £100k, and all funds that continue to be raised will go to Mae’s community fund for after-care, which will be required following her surgery in 2014. This will include all care costs such as physiotherapy, specialist equipment and any costs associated directly with rehabilitation for Mae.

You can see the Hope4Mae Fund grand total, made up of Mae’s Just Giving donations plus her community fund on our website, and follow Mae’s progress through surgery and beyond.

Sincere thanks to everyone for sharing Mae’s story and supporting her journey!

Mae’s family is currently working on a video to share Mae’s journey so far, including the astonishing achievements of volunteers who have run events, been sponsored for crazy antics and gone out of their way to help Mae achieve her dreams of walking. We will share with you as soon as it is available to view!

A message from Mae’s parents:

‘We really can’t wait to start work on our fundraising video of events that have taken place so far!!
Fundraising has certainly strengthened us for the coming months and years ahead. Its incredible to think of everyone and everything over the last 6 months that have got us to this point today. It has been a tiring addition to our journey but we would without doubt do it all over again and will continue to work in events to give Mae the best possible aftercare. We have made some great friendships, We feel very loved and we are so thankful and proud of everyone that has contributed to Hope4Mae aMAEzing people.

Well, we have smashed the £30k barrier this week, and there is more sponsorship money to come in from all the recent events. We couldn’t be happier!

There are a number of new credits in the Hall of Fame – people who have recently completed challenges or events on our behalf, and you can still donate to their Just Giving pages if you’d like to show your appreciation.

As ever, a huge thanks is extended to everyone who continues to help us achieve Mae’s goal of walking. If you, or a friend, feel you could support us with company sponsorship, a raffle prize or hosting your own sponsored event in our cause then please get in touch.

We currently have raffle tickets available for our Mega Raffle in September, and just a few places left at our Variety Night. Please contact us if you are interested in buying these. Thankyou!
