And the shortlisted nominees for Young Fundraiser of the Year 2019 are…

Evelyn Betsie Chaney, Elliot Gunn, Joseph Mcdonald and Gina Gray who are all just 6 years old!

Evelyn chopped off all of her hair, donated her hair to the Little Princess Trust to make a wig for children who have lost their hair and donated the money she raised to Candlelighters.

Elliot climbed Scafell Pike, which is a lot bigger than him! Determined to get to the top when faced with rain, hail and snow without a word of complaint he has the attitude of a great fundraiser.

Joseph and Gina are best friends who did a sponsored walk, to raise money and awareness for Candlelighters in support of “Freddie’s Fight” a local family whose son has been diagnosed with cancer.

The YOUNG FUNDRAISER OF THE YEAR AWARD 2019 is SPONSORED BY TOWN CENTRE SECURITIES.
