Local fundraisers Brighter Sines have vowed to raise more money for local children’s hospitals and hospices this year, to help the children of local communities.
Set up in July 2013 by Maurice Sines and James Crickmore, to bring awareness and offer help and comfort to those around us. Without help and support charities and hospices far too often find themselves in hard times. All money donated to Brighter Sines, is given directly to each cause. Unlike other charities, no percentage is taken for admin.
Maurice Sines said, "We believe charity should start at home and with the communities around us."
So far Brighter Sines have visited Basildon University hospital’s accident and emergency department to hand out some much needed toys, to brighten up their visit. They have given money to Alamanda’s Therapy animals, who help support the terminally ill. Rettendon Primary school as well as 3 year old Finley Ranson, Battlesbridge. Who suffers from a rare eating disorder Eosinophilic Enterocolitis, which means he is unable to eat normal foods without having an extreme allergic reaction.
Money raised has so far come from various events held, a fund day last September held in Wickford raised £1200. Which included an appearance from Chas & Dave cockney singer, Chas Hodges, who sang into the evening. A Christmas dinner and swing night held, raised £684. As well as various raffles, coffee and cake mornings.
James Crickmore said, "Everyone is willing to send money abroad, which is great, but they can forget about improving our children's education in schools. Or helping hospices give care to the disabled. We will do more to help our children, but we ask for the support and awareness from our local communities and businesses."
Forthcoming fundraising events for 2014 are yet to be confirmed, information will be posted direct to the website: brightersines.co.uk and their Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/BrighterSines.
