“Hold a Fish and Chip Supper to help spinal cord injured people rebuild lives after injury”
Great British Fish and Chip Supper – Friday 20th May 2016
Want to eat Fish and Chips, while raising money for charity? Hold a fish and chip supper on Friday 20th May 2016 whilst raising awareness of spinal cord injury and supporting SIA’s vital services.
You can hold a fish and chip supper in your own home, at work or hold a larger supper at your local community centre.
SIA will provide a fundraising pack containing hints and tips, recipes, invitations and donation envelopes. By inviting 8 friends and asking them to donate an additional £5.00 means you will raise at least £40.00 from your supper but we will also give you additional fundraising ideas to raise even more money for SIA.
Just £50 could contribute towards the support from our Peer Support Service for one hour, in a district general hospital or Major Trauma Centre.
In 2016 we want to make the batter matter and raise £40,000 from everyone holding suppers. Last year we raised £12,000 from the suppers.
The money raised from the suppers will help the Spinal Injuries Association offer support to individuals who becomeparalysed and their families, from the moment a spinal injury occurs, and for the rest of their lives byproviding services andpublications which enable and encourageparalysedpeople to rebuild lives after spinal cord injury.
Every year in theUKover 1,000people experience a spinal cord injury and there are an estimated 40,000 spinal cord injuredpeople in theUKalone.
Community Fundraising Manager,Elizabeth Wright, says, “The Fish and Chip Supper is a wonderful opportunity for a great evening with friends and family. We are also encouraging people who work to hold a Fish and Chip Lunch in their work places to raise even more funds. You may be even a local community group wanting to run a fun evening with your group.
