EASTER EGG APPEAL
We are looking for sponsors for our 2024 Easter Egg Appeal. Let’s bring some Easter Magic to children from our Jasper and AKIVA children’s services – many of whom who have experience significant trauma and will otherwise not receive a gift this Easter. Gestures like this make a real difference to these children during a time which for many is extremely difficult.
If you can help please contact Emily at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 07845 002640.
THE BIG LEICESTER 10K IS BACK!
The Leicester Big 10K is back! And once again LWA is a charity partner. The event takes place on Sunday 14 April in Abbey Park, Leicester.
We are looking for volunteer marshals to support the running of this event. FOR EVERY MARSHAL LWA PROVIDES THE ORGANISER DONATES £25 TO OUR CHARITY.
Marshals are required to attend a briefing from 8 – 8.15 and then they are stationed at points along the course to point runners in the right direction (which is also marked by arrows). Marshals are finished by 11.30 am. Full details about what is involved are shared nearer the time – it’s not difficult and is a lot of fun!
Further details here: https://www.tempoevents.co.uk/events/leicesters-big-10k/
Please share this information and let our Head of Fundraising Emily Corrigan know if you or a family member/friend/colleague would be willing to help out as a marshal.
Email Emily: email@example.com
Of course you/your friends etc may like to take part and seek sponsorship for LWA instead 😊
