Special Update: June Events and Donations

We are thrilled to update all our supporters and sponsors on the amazing events that have taken place this month!

Charity Football Match ⚽🏅

Every year, a charity football match takes place in Redditch where local Sunderland lads play a friendly match. This year, they managed to raise an incredible £596.00! An amazing £300 of this came from Eddison Reed-Brown, Louie's Godfather. Here’s what Eddie had to say:

"I’ve been playing in an annual charity game now for 3 years and when giving the opportunity to nominate a charity it was an easy and honourable decision to pick one so close to my heart. The fact I raised £300 for Louie’s trust is absolutely amazing and to seal it off with another win in the game made even better. Louis was definitely watching over us that day and I’d like to dedicate the goal I scored to him. I hope this money raised helped the charity support those in need as much as possible."

The event was even more successful as the lads brought home the win for the third year in a row! 🏆

Fullwell Methodist Church Cake Sale 🍰

The Fullwell Methodist Church Cake Sale raised £320 by selling cakes, biscuits, and other home-baked goods. The proceeds were split between the local church community and Louie's Trust. Louie’s grandparents have recently become members of the community, and we look forward to working with the church organisers in the future.

Thank you to everyone who baked, bought, and enjoyed the delicious treats!

Donations and Support 🤝

With the donations made this month, we have been able to donate a much-needed tumble dryer to Ward 2A of the Great North Children’s Hospital. This request came from the ward staff, who have been without a way for parents to dry children's clothes on the ward for some time now. 

Additionally, we received a request from Sunderland Royal Hospital this week for some play food, dollhouse furniture, and baby dolls to update their playroom, which is used by many children daily. We are delighted to fulfil this request and make the playroom a happier place for the kids. 🧸

Thank you all for your continuous support and generosity! Together, we make a significant difference in our community. 💙
