Well, you have all been actively fundraising for Caring Matters Now and we would like to say well done and…
Thank you, it means so much
Here is just a selection of the activities that have been taking place!
- Tricia (Grandma to Fay) and the staff at Barclays Bank, Cambridge held a fundraising raffle and raised £234
- Fran (Grandma to Scarlett) held a raffle in celebration of her retirement at Blackminster Middle School raising £165

Julie – 2011 London Marathon
You may recall Julie won the ballot we held for the one and only CMN place in the 2011 London Marathon. Julie is a close friend to Scarlett’s family, Scarlett has CMN.
I would like to say huge congratulations to Julie who, in very hot and humid conditions, completed the full 26miles in a very respectable 4 hours and 32minutes. In completing the marathon Julie raised a staggering £2649. A massive achievement; from all at Caring Matters Now, thank you and well done.
40th Birthday Celebrations
Ket and Mike, friends of Melissa and Aidan decided to have a joint 40th birthday party and kindly asked their guests to not give gifts but to donate to Caring Matters Now. Melissa and Aidan have a beautiful daughter called Ava who has CMN. Melissa said “Ket and Mike have known Ava since the day she was born and both they and their families have been really supportive to us and Ava”.
