Success of 2014 Fundraising

2014 has been an epic year for fundraising and we would like to say a massive thank you to you all for doing your bit! But we must not rest on our laurels!

We have seen an increase in corporate support, schools fundraising and so many more individuals getting involved in one way or another.

We would like to say a special thank you to the McCrossan Family, who so sadly lost their beautiful daughter Holly earlier this year, but who continue to support this charity and have continued to fundraise for Caring Matters Now and the research programme, even through the total devastation of their loss. Thank you.

Thanks also to everyone involved in hosting a wonderful CMN Charity Dinner Dance at the Intercontinental Hotel in London on 20th September.

The support we received from small corporates for this event was remarkable and the event could not have happened without such generosity.

Big thank you also goes to Brendon Cole for giving up his last Saturday night before the start of Strictly Come Dancing to be with us! Amazing!

It was a truly remarkable night and we are astounded at the amount raised:

Thank you to everyone involved in making this one for the joyous memory box!
