Story

A couple of months ago I had an idea about running a tombola at school to raise money for breast cancer - Here is how it began - with an email to small businesses via Instagram:

Dear ….

My name is Amelia Ellis, I am 10 years old. My Mum follows you on Instagram.

My mum was diagnosed with Breast Cancer last February. Luckily due to all the treatments out there, my Mum after having chemotherapy, surgery and radiotherapy is now cured. 

I would like to know if you would be at all interested in donating a prize (no matter how big or small) for the tombola I am going to do at school (Westonbirt Prep School, near Tetbury) after half term, in aid of the charity Breast Cancer Now. I thought it would be nice for the children to be able to win a prize to then give to their mums, as a present but also as an awareness to Breast Cancer. All the money raised from selling the tickets will go to Breast Cancer Now which is a magnificent charity because they research new medicines to cure more people like my mum.

If you are willing to donate a prize then please let me know and I can give you my address.

Thank you very much,

Kind regards,

Amelia Ellis


The response to my email has been amazing and we have received over £6,000 worth of fantastic prizes. Everyone has been very generous.  So, we are now called ABCD and it has transformed from a little tombola to two fundraising campaigns - 1. A Raffle for the smaller prizes to be held at school - Westonbirt Prep School - £1 a ticket and 2. An 'Online Social Media Auction Shop' for all the larger prizes which mummy will run. All the money donated will go to Breast Cancer Now which is an incredible charity raising money to find new treatments to beat breast cancer.  Please find us on Facebook and Instagram - ABCD Campaign.

Please support this and lets raise lots of money.

Love Amelia x

P.S Mummy helped me write this!
