We are delighted to announce that Sammy Fyfe will host a bake sale in support of the Captain David Seath Memorial Fund, which will take place at Carnock and Gowkhall Community Centre on Sunday 10 June 2018, from 1300hrs-1600hrs.
Sammy shares her thoughts with regards to choosing to support the Captain David Seath Memorial Fund:
“After attending other events run by the Captain David Seath Memorial Fund in the past year and seeing the great work carried out by those getting involved and the work that David’s Fund does in conjunction with Help for Heroes, I was hoping to get involved a bit more directly this year with the annual sporting events, but due to unforeseen health issues I’ve been unable to participate. I was quite disappointed by this, but decided to take a different approach and use the skills and interest in baking that I’ve developed during this time of poor health to contribute instead.
“I’ve got high hopes for this event and it’s spurring me on and keeping me occupied during this time of hardship. There will be lots on offer including home made bread, jams, cakes, tray bakes, confectionary and other baked goods so even if cake isn’t your thing hopefully there will be something for everyone. There’s also going to be other chances to raise funds on the day including a raffle where the main prize is a hamper filled with various homemade products.
I’m looking forward to seeing how many people turn up to raise money for this great cause. The event will be held on Sunday the 10th of June from 1pm to 4pm at the Carnock and Gowkhall Community Centre and it would be great to see people from both within and out with the Carnock area coming along to have a tea or coffee and a cake or even just popping in to see what’s on offer.”
Gary Seath said:
“I greatly admire Sammy’s commitment and dedication towards supporting the Captain David Seath Memorial Fund. I know how keen Sammy was to participate in Tough Mudder this year and, sadly, this has not been possible. However, the resilience Sammy has shown to come up with an alternative means of supporting David’s legacy is fantastic and we very much look forward to coming along and supporting her efforts on 10 June 2018.”
The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund has raised £280,000 and provided over two-hundred and fifty welfare grants to personnel and veterans of the British Armed Forces living with life-changing physical injuries and psychological trauma through Help for Heroes, the charity David was running for that tragic day.
David’s memorial fund is making a huge and lasting difference to its beneficiaries. Every donation made in his memory is used to support Help for Heroes’ Quick Reaction Fund (QRF) which provides specialist sports equipment, respite breaks and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) therapy, as well as facilitating supported employment placements, training courses and the setting up of small businesses.
