The campaign to open holiday home in St Andrews for children with cancer and leukaemia, took a giant step forward last week when TCCL Lodge received the keys for the property.
Now, the hard work goes on to raise the money to renovate and maintain the house for the future.
But the charity’s committe isn’t one to sit still - they are already busy organising ‘Monster March’ and they want your little monsters to take part!
Monster March involves children creating their own monsters and paying £1 each to enter their school event during March.
As well as making monster masks or puppets, children can dress as monsters, make monster cakes - or do anything that involves creating a friendly TCCL ‘tickle’ monster.
With help from the Dundee-based community interest company Along Came Kirsty, TCCL Lodge would like all schools across north east Fife to join in.
As well as raising funds for the TCCL Lodge house, any schools or groups registering to take part could win £250 plus an Amazon voucher for your child!
TCCL Lodge spokesperson Dr Rosalie Wilkie said: “Monster March is our fundraising campaign being introduced to schools, nurseries and youth groups to raise the remaining money needed to establish and equip our holiday lodge. We are asking primary schools, youth groups and nurseries to register for our Monster March which will see children across the area.”
Parents, head teachers, nursery managers and youth leaders can visit the website http://www.tccl-lodge.org.uk ‘donate to us section’ for more information or contact the Herald office for details and leaflets.
‘School packs’ contain a letter for parents about the event, certificates for children and a certificate for the school to use showing the total raised.
Ideas for making monsters are also available on the TCCL Lodge Pinterest page.
