We wanted to do something for this fund which is very close to our hearts as Joy gave such a lot to my brother Alan and his wife Shirley, and was such a fantastic guide dog and companion. As a family we all miss her too.
We decided to open our house on Sunday 24th November in aid of the 4Joy fund. We had food and drink, items for sale, a raffle as well as a silent auction, and encouraged people to donate to the fund. We were amazed and delighted that a grand total of £625 was raised on the day, with still more to come.
Our thanks go to Dorcas Rochester for hosting a Soiree4Joy at her home. Dorcas raised £530 from her event and I would also like to thank everyone who attended the event and generously donated to the 4Joy fund.
