We are currently winding up the wonderfully joyful month of July! The fundraising has spilled over into August and we still have collection boxes coming in, so a final figure is not available yet! Suffice to say, it has been a festive time of frivolity, friendship and fundraising.
The objective of RADFLY’s Christmas in July is to raise much needed funds to support our local vulnerable youth, and we have certainly done that, but the benefits are much more than this. Our supporters have shared stories and photos of their Christmas gatherings, ranging from intimate breakfast in homes, to workplace morning teas and lunches, to larger events held in restaurants and cafes. I am grateful to have been able to attend a number of these events and share the RADFLY story.
On behalf of the RADFLY team and the organisations and young people we support we offer our sincere thanks to those individuals and businesses who hosted a Christmas in July event. In the words of Maya Angelou: “When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.”
If you have yet to finalise your event we would appreciate you contacting us at your earliest convenience.
Many thanks and may the Spirit of Christmas remain with you until next Christmas!
