It was a pleasure meeting up with the BRN members on Tuesday evening and receiving the cheque for an amazing Â£5,009.00".
The money raised will make a massive difference to The Indee Rose Trust. Thank you for helping us create some much needed smiles for the children. Our Treasure Boxes cost about Â£500 per child and we are sending at least 3 Treasure Boxes a week”.
