Ridley Bear 999 Appeal

 Ridley Bear 999 Appeal

 Falconwood young people working together
In September 2017, the Youth Council in Falconwood launched ‘The Ridley Bear 999 Appeal’ to say 'thank you' to our emergency services.
The Youth Council is made up of representatives from our local youth organisations such as Guiding and Scouting, Bishop Ridley Church and Bishop Ridley Primary School.
We are running sponsored events and local activities for children to raise money to recognise the bravery and commitment of the men and women of the emergency services and will be donating any money raised to the Fire Fighters Charity, the Metropolitan and City Police Orphans Fund and the London Ambulance Service Benevolent Fund.
Staff from the emergency services will also be visiting our groups to talk about their work.
Our initial target is to raise £4000
You can donate to the Appeal in any of the following ways:
 Purchase a special ‘Emergency Service Ridley Bear’
(for a £5 donation)
 Support one of our fundraising events
 Donate to ‘Bishop Ridley Church’ - please mark your envelope ‘Ridley Bear Appeal’
You can also contact us via our Facebook page or by email at
Address for donations is: Ridley Bear Appeal, c/o Bishop Ridley Church, The Green, Welling DA16 2PG
Follow our fundraising progress (and the adventures of Ridley Bear!) on our Facebook page.
Thank you for your support. Saying ‘thank you’ to our emergency services
