Getting Charity off the Ground for the Price of a Lemon

3rd September 2012

Forum Café Bars have decided that charity begins at 10,000ft.

So on Saturday 6th of October, a brave/out-of-their-mind team will be taking a fall for Whirlow Hall Farm Trust to raise £3500 for this much deserved charity. It's tough giving money for charity in hard times like this but the FCB team believe that people these days don't know they are (air)born and so to help get this plan off the ground they have devised a scheme to easily achieve the donations. They have calculated that if just 1.8% of Sheffield's population donated 35p each, their target of £3500 can be easily achieved.  As the team plummet through the sky and go hurtling towards the ground at unknown speed limits, they can feel confident that they have raised 35p for every single one of the those 10,000 feet on the way down for Whirlow Hall Farm Trust. Of course if you want to donate more then the team would be delighted, however 35p is less than a bag of crisps, cheaper than a pack of chewing gum and even a lemon! The Trust, which is a unique environmental and educational charity, provides outstanding learning and developmental experiences for up to 10,000 children from disadvantaged backgrounds and for adults with disabilities and special needs. Whirlow Hall Farm Trust fund raiser, Sarah Kerrigan, is wholly endorsing this jump for joy (questionable) and says it is -great to hear that the team are willing to take the challenge on. All donations greatly appreciated, please visit our fundraising page:
