So far, they have raised £1,237.33 of their £4,000.00 target to bring back a sea-side trip to Brighton for WBAF’s 250 parents and children.

They are taking part in the Regent’s Park Races Summer 2015 10K Race Grand Prix Series this Sunday August 2.

Sabrina says:

” In 2011, Westminster Befriend a family organized its last day trip to Brighton – mostly – due to governmental cuts. The seaside trip used to be the most popular project run by the charity & was the only holiday for some parents and children. Consequently, we are aiming at raising funds to allow 250 children & parents to spend an awesome day in Brighton. Let 2015 be the year you will help the project come back to life after 3 years!’

“I started volunteering for Westminster Befriend a family 10 months ago. I have the chance to mentor a 6 years old adorable girl living with her single father. The idea of this project came out when I thought of taking the little girl I mentor to the beach during the summer and then realized she would enjoy the trip even more if other children were coming with us.’

“In order to raise the necessary funds, Syed and I are running the Regent’s Park Summer 2015 10K Race Grand Prix Series on the 2nd August. This demanding challenge is definitely worth the hundreds of smiles we together could bring about!’

“Your donation will allow the families to travel by train, enjoy a 3 course meal, participate in an outdoor activity (like visiting the Aquarium), relax at the beach and spend a memorable day thanks to you:

– £15 to help a child go to Brighton OR a single mother/father with her/his under 5 child

– £64 to help a whole family

– Any amount will make a massive difference for the families we’re fundraising for

Thank you very much for your support to this fantastic project. Your donation truly means a lot for the children, parents and Westminster Befriend a Family.”

 

Supporters in race to bring back our seaside trip

Family support volunteer, Sabrina Rebrab and her colleague, Sayed Ahmad, are to take part in a 10k race in a bid to revive our hugely popular annual day trip to Brighton.

The two are running for WBAF in the demanding Regent’s Park Summer 2015 10K Race Grand Prix Series on August 2.

They hope to raise £4,000 to pay for the seaside trip this year. The last one took place four years ago, in 2011, before it had to be shelved thanks to cuts. It was the only holiday of the year for some families.

The pair have, so far, raised over over £1,000 towards their goal.

Sayed said: “This challenge is definitely worth the hundreds of smiles we could bring about! “
