It’s a busy time of year but we wanted to make sure we thanked you for your continued support.
To the shows who have booked us, the audiences who have cheered us on, the charities that motivate us and of course, our young riders who inspire us every day (they are our kids, after all).
In 2019 we raised a phenomenal £8000 for charity. Our two causes chosen by the kids were Portsmouth Down Syndrome Association and The Children’s Bubbles Fund at the Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth.
PDSA are in the process of fundraising to renovate their new centre, where they will provide specialist support and education services to young people with Down Syndrome, which they otherwise would not have access to in the community.
The Children’s Bubbles Fund raise cash to make the paediatric unit at the QA Hospital a more comfortable and inviting place for patients. This could range from specialist medical equipment to redecoration or toys and games.
2019 also saw two of our dads complete an epic motorcycle ride to the Morocco and back in aid of Simon Says Child Bereavement Support, a team of Tigers smashing the Great South Run in aid of PDSA and Simon Says, a fundraiser for Oliver’s Fight Against Neuroblastoma and a day of school displays in aid of Wave 105’s Cash for Kids.
In the current season of giving, this part of Tigers life seems the most fitting to celebrate. We love being able to support children’s charities each year and pride ourselves on our sense of community, something the children are fully involved with. In January, the children will vote on our 2020 causes. For our 40th year, we hope to raise more than ever and we couldn’t do that without YOU. So thank you for keeping us roaring!
We wish you all a peaceful, joyous Christmas.
