Dons Local Action Group and our incredible community have been working in powerful partnership for one year. Watch the virtual celebration to mark our 1st birthday.
The evening was co-presented by Julia Lalla-Maharajh OBE and John Scales. Julia is the Founder of the Orchid Project charity and John is an FA Cup Winner with Wimbledon in 1988. They updated on our vision for the organisation and reflected on all of our achievements this past year.
During the event, we streamed our youngest fundraisers, Edward and George (aged 4 and 5), as they crossed the finish line of their month-long marathon adventure. They raised over £3,500! The video also features fun challenges, a four-part film showing the evolution of the organisation and the outstanding work that has been done in the last year. In addition to hello messages from our amazing team of volunteers, a thank you from our partners, insight into our new Furniture Hub, and much more.
The event was open to volunteers, friends, partners and the whole community.
