A few weeks ago, Kicks Count launched their Bunnies for Babies campaign to encourage followers to help raise money and awareness for their amazing work over Easter by taking on a virtual run or walk. It’s exactly a year ago today that I completed the Dirty Dozen OCR to kick off my Know Your Normal fundraising to help fund Kicks Count & Coppafeel, but this year, at 34 weeks pregnant I was in no position to take on such a intense challenge and while the campaign is very much open to walking or running any distance you like, I wanted to do something a little different to raise as uch money as possible, so instead I took ‘Bunnies for Babies’ in a slightly different direction.
On Good Friday, along with my mum, sister & her boyfriend, I held an Easter Egg tombola at The Mall, Maidstone. We had eggs and treats of all shapes, sizes and brands and sold tombola tickets for 50p each. We were SO incredibly busy for most of the day and very nearly cleared out all of our stock.
The Easter bunny even made a couple of appearances throughout the day!
Today, Easter Sunday, we hosted a family picnic & Easter Egg Hunt at a local park / woodland. We charged £2.50 per child and hid chocolates, toys and treats at 10 stops in the woods. The Easter Bunny came along too and was there to greet and congratulate the children at the end of their hunt. We also held a raffle of treats for the grown ups.
Overall, we raised over £250 across the two days and this money will help Kicks Count to promote their important message and boost their the launch of their two upcoming projects. Thank you to everyone who came along and supported us.
From me & mine to you & yours, we hope you have had a wonderful Easter.
