Festive fundraiser Pamela Nicol Brown has beaten her annual target yet again. This year’s total is more then £25,000.
Pamela runs her ‘Just a Thought’ campaign every year to raise money and present for the MFR Cash for Kids campaign. The people of Forres donate toys and money and she collects it up and hands it over to the charity just before Christmas.
MFR have now put Pamela in the top five of their ‘celebri-tree’ leaderboard and you can vote for her to be the star on top at https://forreslocal.com/pamela-does-the-work-of-460-santas-as-she-tots-up-25k-sack-of-christmas-gifts/
Due to the difficulties caused by the pandemic, she wasn’t sure if this year could top the last.
She said: “To be honest, I really didn’t think we could top 2020, but we have! Well and truly – our total raised between donations and gifts is £25,126.00.”
The entire campaign helps put presents under the tree for more than 4,000 youngsters, and Pamela’s support has directly helped more than 450 children this year.
She added: “I would like to thank each and everyone, for your kind and generous donations, the response we have had for my ‘just a thought’ mission Christmas is absolutely incredible! Thank you!
“I’m looking forward to a nice wee break.”
