Lindsay Fundraising Story

"The first time I ever arrived at screening was the most moving day of my life. I felt overwhelmed with emotion. A wonderful and humbling experience that effects my everyday life". Lindsay Anderson, Registered Theatre Practitioner

I have been fundraising for my team fee and holding bake sales and a raffle at work. I work as a staff nurse in the operating theatre and my work colleagues love a cake sale! However, this time my lovely Filipino work mates cooked their own dishes from their native homes and sold them for me at work. The food went down a storm!! Especially the spring rolls. They always request my carrot cake! And so that was also on the menu. Together we raised nearly £300! Amazing! I was so pleased.

I have also been given unwanted Christmas gifts to sell for Operation smile and items for a raffle which I am drawing on Friday the 10th of February. I gave a presentation about my missions to the department on an audit day and it created a lot of interest and stirred emotions as well as raising awareness. I am passionate about Operation Smile and I have also given a presentation to my sister’s church who generously made the charity their own last year.

Without fundraising for my team fee in order for me to join a mission I would not be able to afford to go. I have to be resourceful and rely on the kindness of others. I’m always touched at how generous people are.
