We have been absolutely blown away by our incredible supporters on Facebook who, this calendar year alone, have raised over £8,000! This means that, since the charity set up Facebook Fundraising, our supporters have raised over £12,500!
We are so grateful to those of you who have opened fundraisers to mark your birthdays, which is the source of the majority of that amazing total. It is such a special way to celebrate and your generous gift makes an incredible difference to the lives of those affected by Fragile X. If you have a birthday or special occasion coming up, then setting up a donation page is easy! Simply visit this page and complete the brief form: https://www.facebook.com/fund/thefragilexsociety/
We are also grateful to Jim and the team at Over Power Fitness Cambridge who, at their Christmas fundraiser earlier in the year, raised an astonishing £3000 via Facebook! Inspired by seeing some of the members of their club wearing Fragile X Society tshirts, Over Power hosted a Christmas buffet, along with live performances from a selection of talented performers and an amazing raffle, with prizes generously donated from many different supporters and local businesses. Collections from the raffle and generous donations took the total to the incredible final amount, which was easily collected via Facebook.
Thank you to all our incredible supporters for all that you do to support us, and enable us to support and empower the Fragile X Community.
