Every year the ALMT hosts a flamboyant, fun and fantastical Burns Night Supper. For 2013, we thought we'd do something very special. As guests were entertained by Rachel Riley and Comedian, Patrick Monahan, they had the opportunity to pledge funds to directly benefit some of the ALMT's partners.
The benefitting partners are:
Afican Village School Fund (AVSF) – ALMT supporters pledged money to cover the cost of calor gas for over a year at the AVSF kitchen, integral to sustaining their feeding programme.
Lotus Outreach – Guests pledged enough money to purchse over 10 bicycles for this innovative programme providing transportation for girls in Cambodia to attend school.
St Anns and Sneinton Football Club (SASFC) – The club now has the funds to buy trophies for an entire season!
Siblings Together – Generous donors pledged funds to cover the cost of tents and equipment for the annual Siblings Camps, week long holidays bringing siblings separated in the care system together.
Mac Bevan Smile Fund – This ALMT initiative is now able to support an extra World Care Patient in this partnership with Operation Smile. The Fund exists to support those with facial deformities too severe to be treated at Operation Smiles regular clinics.
Peckham Shed – Thanks to Burns Night, Peckham Shed are able to provide sign language training to volunteers and purchase sensory materials for their workshops.
