Twenty years of fundraising for renal services

Posted on Thursday 6th December 2012

A kind-hearted mother and daughter team have marked their 20th year of fundraising for renal services in North Cumbria by handing over a cheque for £3,300.

June Means and her daughter Jane Foster, both from Brampton, began their charity efforts following the death of June’s father Tommy Thompson 20 years ago from renal failure.

They now sell chocolates, handicrafts and other gifts at the Cumberland Infirmary in the run up to Christmas and Easter every year, as well as holding a big annual craft fair in Brampton in October and stalls at events throughout the year.

The pair handed over a cheque to David Gledhill, Ward Manager of the Renal Unit at the Cumberland Infirmary, for £3,300, the total raised over the past 12 months.

Postal worker Jane said: “We both want to say a big thank you to everyone who has supported us again this year, including everyone who came to our craft fair in Brampton in October, where we had 58 stalls. I particularly want to thank the Royal Mail in Carlisle who have been very supportive.”
