It is a little over two years since The Jane Metson Foundation was started in Jane’s memory and a fantastic £45,000 has been donated to good causes. With your continued help and support we are committed to our mission of ‘alleviating human suffering, poverty or addiction’ in the UK and around the world.
As ever a huge thank you to our regular and one off donors for your generosity and also to anyone who has helped the foundation in anyway. We and the charities that benefit from the foundation are hugely grateful for your support.
Many of you already kindly donate via regular monthly direct debits and this is a fantastic way to support the Foundation as well as you to budget your charitable giving. It allows the Foundation to plan our donations more strategically and also make additional donations to specific appeals from the charities. To set up a regular monthly donations please follow this link. Your help will be greatly appreciated.
Please remember 100% of all donations go directly to the charities, including any GiftAid.
A massive thank you to Silvia Forcat for running the 2016 London Marathon in aid of the Jane Metson Foundation. She completed the race in an excellent time of just over four hours and raised a whopping £2269 – all this whilst completing a Masters and looking after her one year old!
Another thank you to Joe Singleton who also ran the Marathon and raised over £250 for the Foundation whilst also preparing for his A-Levels!
The ‘Silwood’ coffee morning once again proved a crowd pleaser with delicious cakes and biscuits devoured in the May sunshine. Over £700 was raised through donations and a raffle.
Well done to all who took part in the 2nd annual JMF Cricket Tournament in August. Goe’s men claimed the spoils on a glorious day and dominated with some explosive hitting – over £900 was raised.
A huge thank you to Charters School in Sunningdale for choosing the Foundation as one of their ‘House Charities’ for the 2015/2016 academic year. In total over £2400 was raised by the ‘Pankhurst Panthers’ through various fundraising activities such as a quiz night, Valentines Bake-off and the ‘Hour Challenge’ which involved 750 students and staff running around the athletics track. We are hugely grateful that the school will continue to support the Foundation in 2017.
Thank you to those who have attended one of the many events during the year, and also those who are supporting from afar. We hope we can see all of you at a Foundation event soon! And please keep giving!
With our heartfelt thanks and best wishes,
