Eight-year-old Edie Faulker from Angmering was inspired to support Children on the Edge after hearing about children being forced to leave their homes in Ukraine after the Russian invasion. Edie wanted to raise money to help because she “wants all children to be safe and happy”. Not only did Edie raise an incredible amount of money to support Children on the Edge, she also helped to spread the word about the work of the charity amongst her friends and family.
But Edie didn’t stop there, she decided that she wanted to help spread the word and tell more people about the work of Children on the Edge. So she created a video talking about all of the ways that Children on the Edge supports refugee children around the world and showed it to her friends, family and to her Brownie group.
After all of Edie’s fantastic fundraising she was given her charities badge at Brownies, which she is very proud of.
Fundraising Officer Annie Whillians said, “We are so grateful to Edie for organising her garage sale stall. She put in a huge amount of effort baking treats and donating her toys and books to help support our work. We loved watching her video about our work and we were delighted to hear that she was awarded her Brownie Charity badge, it was certainly well deserved!”
We love supporting our young fundraisers and helping them achieve their charitable goals. Whether it’s Brownies, Scouts or local football teams, if you or your child are part of any community groups, just get in touch to find out how we can work together and help make a difference.
