We've had a busy summer of events here at Faith in Families. From our very own festival, FiF Fest, to raising thousands of pounds thanks to the generosity of the East Midlands property sector, we have loved catching up with old friends, making new ones, and raise lots of money!
The first ever FiF Fest
In July, we celebrate the summer with the first FiF Fest - a festival we organised for our adoptive families. Every year we run at least two events for our families, as part of our promise that support from Faith in Families lasts a lifetime. They are a brilliant chance for our families to catch up with each other, and for the children to have lots of fun!
Here are some photos from the gorgeous sunny day we spent at Ratcliffe College in Leicestershire for FiF Fest:
Over £7000 raised from gala dinner
We were so privileged to be the charity partner for this year's East Midlands Insider Awards Property Dinner. We enjoyed a fantastic night in September, and were so thrilled by the generosity of everyone at the awards ceremony. We raised over £7000, which will go towards our outstanding work preparing families for their adoption journey, and in schools through our fantastic School Social Work Service. Thank you everyone for your generosity.
Yeehaw! It's Faith in Families' barn dance!
In October we had a Barn Dance at Keyworth Village Hall - another event we put on this year for our families. We loved line dancing and having fun with friends. A big thank you to Dance Equation for providing the line dancing expertise, Malcolm for DJ'ing brilliantly, and Bank Farm for providing the real life hay bales! Here are some photos of the staff team enjoying some fun before everyone arrived!
