Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

My lovely brother Alan died of COPD  on World COPD day in 2015; it is a terrible illness and a horrible way to die.  There are two reasons why I support the British Lung Foundation.

1: Breathing affects us all, yet the BLF is the only UK organisation that looks after the Nation's lungs & provides funds for research. I have heart problems so have a personal interest too.  The BLF It is a small charity in comparison with many others, but with a big job to do and so every penny counts.  

2: I was able to set up a memorial page with the BLF for my brother and every penny raised goes on his page; this helped enormously with the grieving process at the time and still does.  I am very proud to watch how the amount grows each time and very proud of Telford salsa club for making it happen.

The club raises money every year via a Secret Raffle plus on door donations & proceeds from the annual Xmas & Summer Balls. Secret Raffles (wrapped prizes) ensure the emphasis is on giving, not receiving.  £400 in total was raised at the 15 Year Anniversary Celebration so aim to match this amount and/or exceed it.  Please donate via this link if you are unable to attend the event. Every donation counts so thank you in anticipation!

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
