Dear Brian

I first heard of the charity ‘Alec’s angels’ when my Nan and Grandad told me about ‘Its a Knockout’ in 2012. I was intrigued to find out more.

Then earlier on this year my class were choosing a charity to raise money for and I suggested ‘Alec’s Angels’. After explaining what the charity was about and why it started, they loved it. ‘Alec’s Angels’ became our chosen charity.

We went on to organise a ‘5k fun run’ and raise money. The run took place in June.

The run was 17 laps around our school field and then a barbecue afterwards, it was great fun. Although I was tired, remembering what Alec and his family had been through kept me going until I had completed it.

After all of this I went on too ask Brian (Alec’s Dad) to come into my school and give a presentation to my year. At the end of the assembly we handed Brian a cheque of £441.02 which was the total amount we had raised for Alec’s Angels.

 A few people in my year who did not participate in the ‘fun run’ have said to me that they would love to get involved and help raise some money.

I have since found out that the money my class raised is going towards making a young girl smile, which is what Alec wanted to do.
