The Genesis Centre Jubilee Fundraiser
After visiting the Genesis Centre in May 2022 to raise awareness of all our projects which support vulnerable and disadvantaged families across Stoke-On-Trent & Newcastle-Under-Lyme to the different businesses that are located there, we were delighted when Diane Joynson, who manages the centre, contacted us to say that they had decided to do a fundraiser for Alice charity during Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
The Genesis Centre team decorated the building in colourful bunting, balloons and photos of Queen Elisabeth II, came to work dressed in red, white, blue and thoroughly enjoyed tucking into delicious Jubilee cakes. They raised a fantastic £231 for Alice families by holding a tombola so a huge thanks to everyone that got involved and donated.
We are using the funds raised to purchase four single bed mattresses to accompany two sets of bunk bed frames that have been donated, so four local children will be able to enjoy a lovely night’s sleep in their own bed, thanks to everyone at the Genesis Centre who supported this fundraiser, and especially Diane and everyone who helped her with bunting, cakes and tombola prizes.
On Monday we popped along to collect their kind donation and they mentioned that they will doing some more fundraising for us again later in the year, for which we are sooooooo grateful.
We simply cannot do what we do without the support of people like you, so thank you xxx
