Fundraiser Anne Deeney has recently been inspiring a great team of people from Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council (RBMC) to raise funds for Senit Foundation.
First came the cake sale that raised £310 and was organised by the child care Paralegals Pearl Tracey, Laura Bell and Janine Mitchell.
Then to burn off those calories an energetic team travelled all the way to Inverclyde to take part in a charity run!
On the 10th August 2013 Anne brought together a group of people from England, Scotland and Wales all with one aim, to raise money for the Senit Foundation.
Anne has been inspired to coordinate this event by her brother Gerry Deeney, founder member of the Foundation, who has fought a personal, relentless battle against cancer for the past 11 years. Anne, now fully recovered from a stroke in 2008, was joined by friends and relatives who ran, walked and cycled the route between the Esplanade and Gourock.
The run/walk raised £990 and was completed by Anne along with Luke Evans and Karen Harrison, who are all officers working for the children’s social care service. Local family and friends who, through sponsorship, boosted the money raised to £1600 also joined them at the Spinnaker Hotel upon completion of the run.
A huge chunk of the money raised by both activities was donated from RMBC employees.
The Senit Foundation are most appreciative of everyone’s efforts in particular the support of Martin Kimber, CEO, and Joyce Thacker Director Children & Young Peoples Services, RMBC for enabling their brilliant team to take part in the fundraising activities!
