Peterhead Harbour Open Day Success

A big thank you goes to Elizabeth Forsyth, grandmother to Cystinotic Lena Forsyth, who had yet another fantastic fundraising day at the Peterhead Harbour Open Day on the 14th of August. Elizabeth ran the stall the entire day with hardly a break, selling craft items such as knitting, bags, quizzes and home-made cards, as well as holding a teddy bear raffle. A total of £215 was raised through the sale of these items, either made by Elizabeth or donated by friends and family.

In addition, the following day, Elizabeth attended the Strichen Lake Fundraiser with a similar stall, being out there all day again from 10am to 5pm. On this occasion a total of £161 was raised, including £11 raised by the “guess the weight of the marrow” competition (following the donation of a particularly large marrow).

Elizabeth has been a long term and continual supporter of the Foundation, and running stalls at local fêtes is all part of what she would consider to be a “normal” weekend during the summer months. However, this particular weekend was a very special one, as it was Elizabeth’s 65th birthday, but she chose to spend literally all her time organising and running the two stalls.

It is only through the support of people such as Elizabeth that the Foundation is able to function and we are again so grateful for all the time she puts into running the stalls on the day and also all the preparation beforehand.

Thank you and Happy Birthday Elizabeth!
