Big hearted business owner, Angie Raines from The Granary in Snettisham, Norfolk, has raised an incredible £3,138 for CLIC Sargent.
Angie chose to support CLIC Sargent as she has had cancer herself. Angie said: “After having been through the experience and tough journey of beating lung cancer in 2009, it is unimaginable what a child and their parents must face when given those words 'I'm afraid it is cancer'. I am just extremely proud to be able to do what I can to help.”
Over the past 18 months, Angie has been raising money for CLIC Sargent in lots of different ways including introducing a second hand book corner in The Granary after taking on the café and gift shop in October 2011.
She said: “It has become very popular, with people bringing in stocks of books for me to sell. I have a large stock all the time, and at 50p each they do go quickly!”
Angie also holds regular raffles and donates any tips to the charity. In April this year, Angie and employee Bryony Robinson even took on a skydive challenge for CLIC Sargent. The duo, aptly named ‘The Granary Bombers’ jumped 13,000ft from a plane, raising £1,236 through generous sponsorship from family, friends and customers.
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager, Alison Ramsay said: “We want to say a very big thank you to Angie, Bryony and to everyone at The Granary for their most generous support. Fundraising is so important in helping us to continue supporting children and young people and their families here in Norfolk and across the UK.”
