Fundraising fever has swept the residents of Brentford Dock, who organised no less than three charity events in the past two months in aid of React.

Most recently, the residents staged a Burns Night supper in celebration of legendary Scottish poet Robert Burns, and feasted on traditional Scottish staples such as neeps, tatties and of course, the mighty haggis. The meal was preceded by an authentic reading of the Selkirk Grace from one of the dock’s Scottish residents.

A traditional Burns Night supper raised £300 for React families

The evening raised £300 and follows Brentford Dock’s two previous events, including a Christmas party and table top sale. In total, the group raised a fantastic £720 for React families.

These events demonstrate a fine showing of community spirit from all involved and React is thrilled to be supported by such an enthusiastic and creative local community group. It is wonderful to see so many friends and neighbours from Brentford Dock come together and make these events a success. Funds raised will do so much for children living with a life shortening illness, and we would like to express our huge thanks to Leigh Jennings and the events team.
