Nuneaton BBQ's sizzling success!

Published Date: 26 Jul 2019

A family fun day was a huge fundraising success for Nuneaton couple Misar and Imran Khan Pathan on Saturday 13 July, with nearly £5,000 raised in for the National Deaf Children’s Society.

The family fun day was attended by nearly 250 people, who enjoyed a BBQ, bouncy castle, popcorn, candy floss, refreshments and stalls, among other attractions.

Misar and Imran chose to support the National Deaf Children’s Society because their son Hasnain, 5, is deaf and the family have been supported by our charity.

The event raised a total of £2,356.72 for the charity’s vital work, which was then generously matched by Kash Crown Skips to make a grand total of £4,713.44.

Misar commented:

“What a fantastic day we had! Everyone who came had a great time and really got into the spirit of the day! And thanks to Kash Crown Skips it meant we were able to raise much more than we thought we would, which all goes to the National Deaf Children’s Society.

“We had wonderful support with Hasnain from Mary McInnes of the National Deaf Children’s Society, who helped us understand his needs and guided us through. Hasnain is the only deaf child in his school, but thanks to Mary’s efforts he is now happy and thriving. We can’t thank her enough.

“The charity does the same for countless other deaf children and their families, so this was our way of saying thank you for all the kindness and support they have given us.”

Claire Lubbock, of the National Deaf Children’s Society, said:

“I want to say a huge congratulations to Misar and Imran for organising this fantastic family fun day for the National Deaf Children’s Society. It sounds like it went tremendously well and it was so generous of Kash Crown Skips to match the couple’s total. We’re so grateful for every penny raised.

“Thanks to the support of people like Misar and Imran, we’re able to keep on doing what we do, supporting deaf children and their families across the UK, now and into the future.”
