Swishing into fundraising season

JLC had a great summer for fundraising. A ‘Swishing’ event started the season in style – with supporters paying an entry fee to bring unwanted clothes, shoes and accessories to swap with others, kindly hosted for free at Gallery 71a in East London. The event was a lot of fun and raised £300 for Wawa.


It was then time to get fit in the name of fundraising, as the JLC walkers completed the annual 10k Rotary Club walk, raising £720. We also had two London Marathon runners, Simon and Tom, who raised £1,109 between them, despite injuries. Their dedication to the cause is much admired and appreciated.


Finally, we spent a lovely summer Sunday enjoying a fundraising Ploughman’s event, kindly hosted by JLC supporter Cath Simons. Whilst tucking in to the Ploughman’s lunch, an auction and raffle provided entertainment and boosted funds, resulting in a grand total of £1,395. Cath also held a jumble sale raising  £164.


All together, we’ve raised £3,688 this summer, an incredible achievement which will go a long way in Wawa. To find out what difference this is making, take a look at our impact page. Thank you to everyone who helped make this possible.

But we can’t stop here! To sustain our support for people in Wawa, we need your continued support! Our Autumn fundraising kicks off with a quiz night at The Bishop Out Of Residence pub in Kingston-upon-Thames on Friday 6 November. See the poster below for further details.
