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!

 

September Smarties challenge

Anyone fancy a challenge…. why not join in with our Young Ambassador Alfie who is collecting 20p coins in smarties tubes

 

 

 

 

 

Each Smartie tube can hold £13 in 20p pieces and we welcome as many as you can fill!

Encourage friends, family, colleagues to take part.  And for an extra challenge (and healthier too) why not put the smarties in a jar and then have a competition to guess the number of smarties in the jar.  (donating the proceeds to us)

Can you help us in 2018?

Posted by | Donations, Events | No Comments

There are many ways to support our wee charity but in this post I am asking for help with prizes for our events during 2018

We would so very much appreciate help securing some high value prizes for  3 events we are benefiting charity at.  We provide 4 prizes for each event and in return receive financial donations from guests.  Prizes are often spa treatments, or a hotel stay with dinner and breakfast, or the loan of a car for the weekend with an afternoon tea at a 5 star hotel,  or a case of wine or a hair or beauty hamper.

For our own events this year we only have 2 events – Blingo and the Ball.   Blingo needs lots of raffle prizes with a value around £50 and this year we also need silent auction items as we are holding a silent auction for the first time at Blingo.  At our Ball we only have 4 main auction items but we make them special – we already have two pledged!  If you can donate or pledge something extra special ( a holiday in New York for example) or something unusual (remember Johnny Ca$h Coo? and the stunning Silver Ash Beaker)  we would love to hear from you.

If you are able to donate a voucher or product for any of our events please do get in touch – we have always organised our own events and receive such terrific support from you – fingers crossed you can help again this year.

Email me on Lynne@itsgood2give.co.uk if you can help

Thank you!
