Trinity Church Raises £1,400 For Local Disabled Child

Newlife Foundation for Disabled Children is proud to announce that the Holy Trinity Parish Church’s annual fair has raised £1,439.12 towards the funding of a specialist buggy for local child Shannon Smith. This is an amazing total from a combined effort by Reverend John Routh and his team of volunteers at the church. Newlife Foundation for Disabled Children is the leading children’s disability charity that works closely to provide a range of services for children and their families with disabilities across the UK. The much-needed money raised by Holy Trinity Church was through a combination of silent auctions, tombolas, balloon games, book stalls and cake and drinks sales that formed part of the fair that this year took on a Noah’s Ark theme. The money will go towards the funding of a brand new buggy for local child, Shannon Smith, to regain the independence that she desperately requires, Chief Executive of Newlife Foundation, Mrs Sheila Brown, OBE adds: “’This is a fantastic achievement and very encouraging to see the efforts of the church improving the lives of disabled children within the local community. We are very grateful to everyone involved, and would encourage other groups and individuals to keep fundraising to help us meet the £3,000 target for Shannon’s buggy, and to also help other disabled children in the Sutton Coldfield area.” For further information on Newlife Foundation, or to get involved to help raise money for Shannon’s equipment, log onto or contact Newlife Fundraiser, Phil Morgan, on 01543 468 888
