Haircut fundraising

Posted by | Donations, Uncategorized | No Comments

Well done to Amy Scott who raised a wonderful £271 for Its Good 2 Give.

Amy decided to raise money in memory of Joanna Lamb, who was her close childhood friend. She chopped off 11 inches of her hair and donated it to the Little Princess Trust.

Amy said “Thank you for being such an amazing support for Joanna when she was ill and thank you for the amazing work you continue to do”.

Meet our Edinburgh Kiltwalkers – Kerr family

Posted by | Donations, kindness, Special supporters, The Kiltwalk | No Comments

Since our son / brother Tiernan was diagnosed with cancer 6 years ago we have been huge supporters of It’s Good 2 Give! After experiencing first hand just how much cancer treatment can affect the whole family we know how invaluable the support from It’s Good 2 Give is / can be for families during the most unpredictable times.

It’s Good 2 Give! is a real team effort and this is shown in many ways. The dedication from Lynne, Ian and the team is incredulous as they spend so much time and put so much love into the charity to help in as many different ways as possible.

Our family (Mark, Carla, Caitlin, Arianna, Tiernan and Ellamae) have organised a few events this year to help towards our Kiltwalk fundraising

  • Sponsored haircut for the Princes Trust
  • Golf Competition
  • Tenpin Bowling Competition
  • Bagpacking
  • Raffles
  • Tombolas
  • Bake sales
  • Teddy sales

From these events we have managed to raise over £5200 for It’s Good 2 Give! and we know this will make a huge difference. 

Mark and Arianna (kneeling down in the photo below) are so excited to be part of the IG2G kiltwalk team next week in Edinburgh. Bring it on!
