The carol singing along the length of Sydney Buildings on December 21st last year raised a record £1527.25 for Bath-based charity, Designability. Sarah and Richard Pooley visited their workshop on 10 February and were shown round by Martin Rouse, Workshop Manager, and Gemma Harvey, Senior Fundraising Officer (pictured above). Gemma sent this message to all those in our street who donated to this worthy cause:
Designability are honoured to be the long-standing charity beneficiaries of the Sydney Buildings annual carol singing. The vital funds raised for our Wizzybug loan scheme allow young disabled children to have their very own Wizzybug, opening up a world of fun, exploration and independence. Over 1000 children – enough to fill a secondary school – have received a Wizzybug through our loan scheme since 2011! We receive no statutory funding, so this amazing achievement would not be possible without your help. On behalf of everyone at Designability, thank you for singing for Wizzy smiles each Christmas!
This year June Ward will take back the organisation of the carol singing which she has run so effectively for many years.
