KEY 103 - cash for kids charity event.




Last week I was lucky enough to be invited to the KEY 103 cash for kids charity event, which is held annually to raise money for different charity's in the north west. This year they are raising money for Beechwood cancer care centre, Stockport - this is a small charity that aims to provide counselling and workshops for children who have just lost a family member, or require help in understanding a family members recent terminal, or life changing diagnosis.

In order to raise as much money as possible for this wonderful charity, KEY 103 are currently advertising this charity throughout the day, every day during their radio shows.

This campaign is leading up to the official superhero day which is held on 15/05/2015

Now for a little bit about the event itself, firstly it was situated in the lovely UKFAST building in Manchester which is bright, airy and spacious. There was lots of sweet treats including some cute cupcakes from Zara cakes - and I was assigned a superhero name, which was a fun and creative idea!

And for all of us that love glitter there was a station where you could have facial glitter applied, using hair gel, glitter, a makeup brush and a spritz of hair spray - genius!

Once everyone had arrived we were treated to a presentation about the charity and why fundraising for this charity, in particular is so important - we even heard from some of the children and adults who had recieved care from Beechwood which was really special.

To be a part of this fantastic day you can register here to sign your school, business or workplace up, and put on your superhero outfit on the 15th May.

Alternatively, if you would like to donate you can do so by texting KEY to 70070 to donate £5 or contact 0800 064 3838. All texts are free and 100% of the donation goes straight to Beechwood.

Thank you so much for reading.
