Reu’s hair progress

We are pleased to see that Reuben’s hair is growing back nicely and that he is still as handsome as ever!
Ru was very brave and shaved his hair off at our annual ball to raise money for our charity. He raised £1000 which is fantastic and our heartfelt thanks go to Reuben and to all those that were kind enough to donate.

Emma’s Ball 2018: 10th Anniversary

Thank you so much for attending our ball this year, we hope that you had a lovely evening and that we will see you again next year.

We raised almost £6000 which as Mark mentioned in his speech will help to keep the flat going for another year. 

Lynn and Mark had a positive meeting with the hospital this week which confirmed that having the flat is an absolute god send  for those families and patients attending the Marsden from miles away.

Please can we ask that if you haven’t yet paid for any auction prizes that you successfully bid for, that they are paid by 15th December.

  • Bank details are Sort Code 40-27-07 
  • Account Emma’s Bubble Trust 71563971
  • Ref: Surname and what you bid for (e.g. Brandon- football)

Lastly a big thank you to Reuben for taking the very brave step of shaving his hair off. Not only did we benefit from you generous donations but The Princess Trust will also be able to help a cancer patient by using the hair to make a wig.

We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy new year.

Notre Dame’s Charity of the Year

We were delighted to have been part of Notre Dame’s Charity of the Year, and that the amount raised from Silent Discos, cake sales etc had raised a phenomenal amount, which we were truly blown away by. 6th formers presented the cheque for over £3.000 in there assembly which we had been lucky enough to be invited to. Much thanks to the Chaplain Mrs Hopkins for arranging us to be present. Also congratulate the charities they have decided to go with this year. They loved our strapline Every Moment Matters Always-and have taken it very much on board that life is very precious.

Emma’s Ball 2017

Well what a night we had on Saturday 9th December 2017 at Woodlands Park Hotel for Emma’s Ball! 

This year’s Ball was one of our biggest yet with 139 guests attending the event to raise money for our cause. Guests arrived for reception drinks at 6.30pm and were seated for dinner at 7pm, with food choices having already been made. As usual our Master of Ceremony David took charge of the room, encouraging people to get involved with the Table Auction, Raffle and most importantly the Auction.

We were very lucky to have been presented with many auction prizes this year and a HUGE thank you must go out to everyone that kindly donated…as through a combination of all of our fundraising efforts we managed to raise just shy of £9000!

To put this in perspective this amount of money will allow us to continue to maintain our flat that we purchased 2 years ago that assists teenagers that are receiving treatment at The Royal Marsden Hospital in Sutton. This amount is extra special as it means that we are able to continue this funding for the next 7 months, so a MASSIVE thank you to everyone that bid on auction prizes, took part in the raffles and most importantly donated!

Healix Bake Sale raises £198.22

So many thanks to the team at Healix Group in Esher who ran a bake sale for us and raised an amazing £198.22!

Here’s a note from Nicola Gill:

We had a great day selling cakes in our office in aid of Emma’s Bubble Trust. We loaded our trolley up with goodies for the 11am mid morning break, which went down very well with the staff, especially Adam D’s coffee cake which sold out in under an hour! We then made our rounds again at 3pm so that everyone could have an afternoon pick me up. The leftovers (and there wasn’t much left!) were left out for the weekend staff. A big thank you to all of our bakers who created some delicious goodies! A very successful bake sale!

Amanda’s Autumn Fashion Show 2017

Amanda Ladies Fashions of Ashtead every year hold a fantastic Fashion Show for the local community and we were very lucky to be the supported charity this year! The show itself was fantastic with Amanda offering selective labels and beautiful clothes for every occasion, casual to smart chic.

For over thirty years Amanda Ladies Fashions has clothed thousands of extremely satisfied customers, you will find beautiful fashions for women of every generation and for every occasion – day or evening, smart or casual. Amanda’s appeal is embodied by a mix & match of trendy and iconic pieces combining know-how, an ever-present pursuit of quality, attention to detail and customer service that is second to none.

On the night of the show we managed to raise an amazing £2780.10, so a huge thanks to everyone from the local community that attended and enjoyed the wine, food, Basil on the piano and of course the fantastic clothes.

We’d also like to say a huge thank you to Michael Everett for sponsoring the evening by providing all of the wine.

The Family Building Society: Nominated Charity

We recently received the below email from Graham Jelley the Premises & Facilities Manager at The Family Building Society:

You may recall we met very briefly last month in the HSBC bank in Epsom High Street, whilst we were both doing some banking.

I have nominated EmmasBubbleTrust to be one of the charities our staff Sports & Social club support this year, and I am pleased to say this was accepted earlier today at the club’s AGM.

Throughout the year we undertake a whole range of sports & social events as well as regular ad-hoc events during the working week creating an opportunity for the staff to help raise funds for our chosen charities.

I will be in touch again shortly, but in the interim if you would like to discuss the charity with me in more detail then please let me know, and I wish you and the rest of Emma’s Army good luck with your fund raising.

 

A big thank you goes out to Graham for suggesting us. As you can imagine we’re absolutely over the moon and can’t wait to see what events the team plan over the course of the next year!
