Barnardos Thank You

Felt quite emotional after reading this from Sapphira at Barnardos. It makes all the hard graft so worthwhile knowing we have made a difference to so many lives.

Thank you soooooo much for the massive generosity you have all made to support our young care leavers at Barnardo’s. The young people absolutely LOVED their gift bags and Christmas food hampers and they were literally in shock at the quality and amount of gifts they had been given. We too as staff were just overwhelmed at the kindness an…d love shown by you all at what can be a really difficult and lonely time for vulnerable young people.
Thank you from the bottom of all our hearts for the care, thought and love the went into all of the gifts and hampers – from the gifts to the cute gift bags, reusable hamper bags (they loved them), to the people who organised storage and did shopping trips in their own time! You guys are a true inspiration and what an act of human kindness you have given to our children and young people this Christmas time.

Thank you Wendy and everyone involved. We wish you all a very Happy New Year!!

Comments from the young people:

v Please thank everyone who gave us these gifts – they’re well mint!
v This is like really decent stuff – normally at food banks you just get the basics but Christmas is going to be well sick [cool] now.
v Oh my goodness – I’ve needed a new bag for ages! Yay!!!!
v One boy had tears in his eyes and said “You don’t know what this means to me – thank you”

Christmas Campaign-2

As well as donating all the presents for the children we donated 100 hampers of food to families living in crisis and Barnardos teenagers living independently.  Thank you to the ladies attending the Spice Lunch for their donations and very special thanks to Angela Canning for donating £2000 which made it possible for us to do more hampers than ever this year.  Thanks also to Jane for letting us use her house to store the hampers until they could be delivered.

 

Christmas Campaign

The best part of November & December was spent on the Christmas Campaign. This year we donated over 1000 present to local vulnerable children. who without our support many of those children would not have received any presents at all.
To date this Christmas we have donated presents to;
Barnardos young people who are living independently.
Radcliffe Hub for 20 local families
Bury & Radcliffe Social services for families living in crisis…
2 families from Maureens church
6 families from Johns church
Fortalice Refuge for families fleeing domestic violence
Salford Social Services for their families living in crisis
Bolton lads & girls club for their carers
Salford young people & teenagers living in poverty.
Big Steps Nursery
Sale Carers Centre
10 individual families who have contacted us via our website
Mum & her 2 kids moved to the area fleeing violence
We couldn’t have managed this without the help of so many people, from everyone who kindly donated presents, to the ladies who helped me at the unit sort them all out – thank you everyone.

Christmas Spice Ladies Lunch

This years Spice Ladies Lunch was by far the best we’ve ever held. The atmosphere and mood of all the 350 guests was so upbeat from the very start of the day, despite the best efforts of the BBC trying to spoil the day.  After a Fizz reception the ladies enjoyed a delicious Christmas Lunch whilst being entertained by the fabulous trio of Paul Pashley, Russell Shaun & Alex Stewart, whose set this year was just great. Paul Crone brought professionalism and fun as the compare, who the ladies all loved.  There was some sad moments when Wendy talked of the ladies we have lost this year, especially Carole Shuff who was always a big part of the event.  Caroles former right hand lady, Lisa, has now taken over the shop and staged a fantastic Fashion Show.                                      Due to the generosity of the guests over £20,000 was raised

 

George Cosby

We came upon this article in the Manchester Evening News and acted on it straight away. In just over a week since Georges items were stolen, leaving him ultra stressed, we had replaced them.

This is a note from his Mum =   After a horrific burglary at my house my son who has Autism and Global development delay was left without his favourite things. My son is non verbal and finds it hard to understand so it was heartbreaking. The Frost foundation replaced his beloved inflatable hot tub and his iPad. I honestly can’t thank them and Wendy enough . From the bottom of my heart thank you from my Family and mainly George.

 

 

Tate

This is Tate, he has Autism, loud noises really upset him, he likes to spend time alone with his ipad and at night he tries getting out of his room and could often be found downstairs in the early hours, So to help keep him safe the Frost Foundation bought a tall gate for his room, a new ipad with a sturdy frame and special ear covers to keep those pesky noises from upsetting him. We really hope this will make a difference to Tates life.

Phoebe Greenberg – September

Everyone at Frost Foundation would like to say a massive thank you to a very special young girl. Phoebe Greenberg celebrated her birthday this week and instead of the usual birthday party she took a group of her friends Tree Top Trekking and instead of presents she asked her friends to donate to the Frost Foundation. Through Phoebes wonderful selfless gesture she raised £250 which will help so many children we support. Many thanks to Phoebe and her friends you really are special people.

Heidi- Lou

Earlier on in 2017 we donated a specialist and expensive piece of equipment to a beautiful young girl called Heidi- Lou. It was so lovely to receive this message from her mum -

Hiya Wendy,
Just wanted to let you no we have received Heidi-Lou’s new walker, she loves it!!
Took it into school today and all her friends ran over saying ‘look Heidi-Lou your walking’
Made me fill up.
Thank you so much for buying this for her, it’s going to make a massive difference to her life, watching her take some steps today made her so happy :)
What your charity does is amazing and without you she wouldn’t have this amazing piece of equipment that was so needed so again thank you so much.Image may contain: 1 person, smiling, sitting
