The Foundation launches successfully!

14/03/2010

On Saturday 20th February 2010 close family and friends of Patrick gathered together to launch 'The Patrick Evans Foundation' in Patrick's memory. This event coincided with the 1st anniversary of Patrick's death and everyone present saw it as a positive way forward.

We all paid £5 for a bowl of chilli and a sky lantern, and Patrick’s friends made a variety of delicious desserts which were sold in aid of ‘The Foundation’. The launching of the sky lanterns was moving and memorable and created an atmosphere of enthusiasm and unity which we hope is how ‘ The Foundation’ will continue.

We sold mugs and key rings and took orders for t-shirts and polo tops which are being processed.
 
A total of over £1200 was raised on the night which we feel is a great start!
 
Thanks to everyone who attended and those who helped in any way to make the event such a success!
