The Johanna Powell Fundraiser for Laos Villagers

Update posted by togetherforjo On Sep 09, 2015

Our first official event was organised by Jo's family in their local pub the Rose & Crown in Pontypridd on 3rd July 2015. And what a night it was! Jannay sang some amazing tunes to kick start the evening while many of you bought raffle tickets and drank beer from Snowys bar. We had some amazing Raffle ticket prizes from Massages to a Colour TV. We can't thank everyone enough for donating them and many congratulations to those who won! The Auction of the Martin Williams signed and framed shirt (many thanks to Sam Allens Dad for donating) went for an amazing 420! All in all the evening was a huge success and one I know Johanna would have been so proud of. We raised 2200 in just 1 night!

Lucie Taylor organised the 1st Fusion Pop up Event on Sunday 30th August. In good old fashioned Fusion style a Karaoke night with some of the fusion regulars, friends and family of Johanna all belted out tunes in her memory. What a fantastic evening. Jo would have loved to have seen us all there and we hope she was looking down us all smiling. We raised 675 on the night and more money is trickling through from people who have purchased Fusion T shirts. By the way these are still available at a bargain price of 10 each! Many thanks to all who came, we hope your hangovers weren't too bad on the Monday!

We are aware of other people who have completed runs, coffee mornings and even just donated because you think its an amazing cause. From all of Jo's family and friends we can not thank you enough, we have been truely overwhelmed by peoples kindness and generosity. It means so much.

We are now talking of organising an event in January. It is our ultimate aim to hit the 10,000 mark and one I am sure we will achieve. So watch this space!

Well, we could see last night that the donations were flooding in and we have woken this morning to the total being over £1600! Amazing. We cant thank you enough - please keep sharing and encouraging people to donate to such a good cause and keeping Johanna's memory alive. Jo would have loved all this. 
We are still looking into how we will present the money to the villagers and we will keep you updated along the way. But for now here are some images of the villagers and the sort of conditions they live in everyday. They desperately need any help we can give them and that is what we shall give them. Thank you xx
