2013 was a very busy fund-raising year for Think Amy.

Events included:

  • a fabulous gourmet evening by catering students at The Quantock Restaurant, Somerset College of Arts and Technology
  • a sponsored skydive by Zelda Lang, Evette Chapman, Jane Hawkinsby and Amy’s brother Ben
  • a Community Fun Day and Football tournament at Hamilton Park, organised by Taunton neighbourhood policing teams and Taunton Police Cadets
  • in-store Think Amy merchandise stalls in ASDA, Taunton
  • fund-raising by staff and students of bishop Fox’s school (where Amy attended)
  • fund-raising by Taunton police cadets

Thanks to the generosity of all those who organised these events and those who supported them, and to some very generous donations from individuals and local businesses, I was delighted on 31 December 2013 to be able to hand over a cheque for £10,000 to the high dependency unit of Musgrove Park Hospital Children’s Ward to help pay for some much needed specialist equipment.
