Children in Need

The ECatsBridge for Children in Need Pairs - the Dates for 2020 have been confirmed!

Friday 6th November, then Monday 9th, Tuesday 10th, Wednesday 11th and Thursday 12th November

Please join us if you can - we love to have your company !

The final total sent to Children in Need from the 2019 event was £75,258.46 ! Please accept our thanks for your wonderful support and your generosity of spirit. To think when we started this we were hoping that we might (with luck) raise about £5,000 ... unreal! Just how high does it get ! That is a grand total to date of £ 1,031,381.30 !! WOW. Isn't that just amazing.

So now - dare I say it - it's onward and upward to hit the next magic spot of one and a quarter million ! With your help I am sure we will manage it though it may take a year or three

It is a charity very close to Anna & Mark's hearts and we love the fact that it is obviously special for many of you as well. The ECats Cats love it as well !
