Picnic & Pavarotti at the Priory
fwd:motion sponsored an event for Lost Chord, a charity reaching out to people with dementia. The event entitled Picnic & Pavarotti at the Priory raised a staggering £6,000 on the day.
Tina Harrison, Fundraising & Marketing Manager commented in a letter to fwd:motion.
"Thank you so much for all your help with the publicity materials and programmes for our first Picnic at Hodsock Priory. The day was a resounding success and everybody has commented on the fabulous quality of the posters and flyers, they certainly did the trick as we had around 600 people attend the event.
I'm sure you'll be delighted to know that we raised just over £6,000, which is absolutely brilliant.
Once again you have done a sterling job for Lost Chord and I know it's at a much reduced cost and for that we are very appreciative.
From all at Lost Chord, thank you once again for all you've done to help further our work in the field of dementia."

Imagine standing at the edge of an open doorway in an aircraft flying at 10,000 feet - the noise of the engines and the wind ringing in your ears with only the outline of distant fields below. Now imagine leaning forward out of that doorway and letting go - falling forward into the cloud, diving down through the air as you start freefalling at over 120mph! Then imagine the peace and quiet as the canopy opens, the steering toggles come down either side of you and you begin a tranquil parachute descent from two miles up in the air, steering yourself back down to the centre of the drop zone below.
David Whiteley, Director at fwd:motion has stepped up to the challenge and will be completing the jump on Saturday 6th October 2012 to help raise funds for Whirlow Hall Farm Trust (www.whirlowhallfarm.org/). The jump will take place in Brigg, North Lincolnshire, co-incedently where our very own David was born and bred! So we are hoping for a strong local turnout of support!
To show your support you can donate money to Whirlow Hall Farm trust by sponsoring David to complete the 'two-mile' high jump, or give a donation to the trust via www.justgiving.com/fwdmotiondavid.
We would like to wish David all the best before his BIG JUMP! And hope you will support him in his fund raising efforts!
