December Fundraising Highlights

Major Milestone Reached
Our GoFundMe campaign was launched back in May 2019. We set a target of £30K for the year and now, six months on, we have passed the halfway point, raising over €16000. So we are still on target, thanks to the many donors and event organisers – a magnificent achievement. These contributions are so important. At the moment, we are funding two days of professional home care per week (one day and one night) to give Keith a break from the demanding business of looking after Jan. This is costing us around €1000 per month. So every donation is vital – please, please, keep them coming in.

Handbag Auction raises over €1000
Karen Jordan hosted a ladies lunch with a handbag auction which raised an impressive 1,020 euros. Participants provided handbags, each containing a selection of random gifts and bags were also donated by ladies who could not attend. Karen added a Euro millions ticket to each bag, so that one bag could be worth 30 million euros. Paul Jordan and Roger Horrocks handled the auctioning of the bags. Additional vouchers were donated by Jan at La Risa and Lauro Golf which were also auctioned. Food was supplied by Karen, assisted by Sally Horrocks and Carol Thompson, while Steph Freeman provided raffle prizes. Well done to Karen and her helpers for all their hard work.🤩🤩

Ladies’ Supporters in Action Again – €200
This time, an auction of Ladies golf clothes at the Lauro Ladies Christmas Day raised €200 for the janatackappeal. The clothes were kindly donated by Terry Wdowiak’s friend, Ana Lindex. Thank you Lindex Iceland for your kind support.

Los Cantarranas Golf Society donated €500
Every time someone plays golf with the Cantarranas, a small proportion of their entry fee goes into a special charity fund. At the end of the year the committee, in consultation with the members, decides which charity should benefit that year. This year, the society agreed that the money should go to the Jan Atack Appeal Fund. And so their generosity has resulted in a €500 boost for our appeal. Heartfelt thanks to all those who played with the Society this year.On occasions, you may not have felt your golfing efforts were worth the entry fee but the consolation is that part of it went to a most worthy cause ….😂😂😂
