Appetite helps to raise £38000 for Make-A-Wish UK

5th Sep 2014

Appetite supports Make-A-Wish as part of its charity of the year. A Make-A-Wish wish provides seriously-ill children with the opportunity to embrace their childhood wishes and create precious memories with their families that they can treasure forever.

To help raise badly needed funds the team put in place various fundraising initiatives and in August Sheryl Newman part of the fundraising team held a charity ball in Aberdeen.


It was a fantastic evening 200 guests enjoyed an evening of sumptuous food and entertainment, digging deep as they put their best bids forward for a wide variety of fantastic auction, silent auction and raffle prizes. Sheryl even got into the bidding spirit early and won a jet flight simulator session at RAF Lossiemouth!


Other prizes ranged from a tennis coaching session with Strictly Come Dancing star Judy Murray, to a week’s holiday in Florida, dinner with the Scottish and New Zealand rugby teams, private skiing with former Olympian Alain Baxter and a custom designed amethyst necklace donated by Sinclairs of Inverurie, which went for almost £1000.


Make-A-Wish granted the wish of Adam Brock – a magical trip to London for Adam to meet his favourite TV character Mr Tumble. Adams mum Stephanie as our special guest of honour gave a touching humorous, honest account of how isolating Adams illness made them and the huge lasting benefits being granted a wish brought them together as a family.


Carolyn Thornton, Volunteer & Community Fundraising Manager at Make-A-Wish, said: “We are thrilled that the Ball raised an incredible sum of money. I would like to thank Sheryl Newman and the committee for organising the event, without all their hard work and motivation none of it would have been possible.”


Sheryl said, ” We are delighted that our guests helped raise a staggering £38,000 which will do so much. It was a great night full of fun and a few tears as some really touching wish stories were shared which really emphasised the great work Make-A-Wish has done and continues to do.”


We think it’s important to give back to the community in a positive way and I, along with the rest of the Appetite team, feel strongly about the work Make-A-Wish does. For these special local children it changes their lives and those of their family and friends and gives them the chance to leave behind hospitals and treatments for a short while and create magical happy memories.
