Launch Party Success!

Good afternoon all!
After a final tally we managed to raise just over £1100 pound at our launch party!
We also have an estimated £500 of auction items left unsold which we intend to advertise on Lads Without Dads eBay account..
That would bring a total of just over £1600 for the evening!
Thank you again to everyone involved and the generous businesses that donated the auction items..
We are now in the process of applying for funding from the National Lottery, Prince’s Trust, among others and are confident that we will be eligible.
We believe we have enough support and requests for assistance that this is no longer just an idea, it is a work in progress!
We have huge ambition for the future and are developing our ideas all the time..
Once we are actively undertaking activities with these young men the focus will not be entirely on ‘fun’.
We are going to develop outings into educational experiences that teach respect for the natural world, community and themselves as individuals.
Activities such as regular ‘beach cleans’, Community ‘clear up’ and teaching these young men to grow organic fruit and vegetables at an LWD allotment!
Our next event will be a sponsored walk/run/hike/cycle to the top of Pen y Fan, the highest peak in South Wales!
We are aiming to arrange this for the end of July..
Anyone who would like to get involved please leave a comment or send us a message..
We will arrange full details shortly..
Thank you for your continued support,
LWD X
