Sophie Overfield took on the role of 'Ambassador' for the Harriers nominated charity for 2019 recently, after nominating her charities 'Action on Pre-eclampsia' and 'York Special Care Baby Unit' which are both very close to her heart after the premature birth of her and partner Will's, daughter Teagan.
Fast forward to Saturday 17th November and the 'Fundraising Cake and Coffee Morning'. After a succesful event last year, we decided to include a raffle and auction of gifts and prizes donated by club members and their families, as well as a cake sale.
We couldnt have wished for a better response! The event was really well attended by Harriers members and their families and friends. More surprising was that we managed to raise over £1000 for the charity! What an excellent start to Sophie's and the club's fundraising for these excellent charities.
On behalf of Sophie, and the club, we would like to thank all those who donated gifts and services, baked cakes, helped organise the event, helped out on the day and for all your donations.
If anyone would like to still donate money to the charities, the link to Sophie's Just Giving Page is below!
