Liane won a making a difference award last year for her fundraising efforts for the Bobby Moore fund. I believe Liane should be recognised again as she has shown that she has the drive and commitment to continue to help others. Following last year, Liane has encouraged more people to get involved and share her passion to help others and has raised a further £9000 for bowel cancer. This time she teamed up with her younger sister to share the experience.
Along with the £8,500 she raised in 2009 she has now raised nearly £20,000 for the Bobby Moore fund and I know she will not stop there. She is a very inspirational young lady and her fundraising efforts bring happiness to many around her. What is special about the fundraising Liane does is that not only does it bring together her local community in fundraising events, not only does it raise a substantial amount of money for Cancer Research UK but Liane also take 2 weeks of her own time and travels to a village internationally to make an impact on other communities. This year was in Namibia in Africa, and she spent 2 weeks re-building and renovating a boarding school, where 200 children ages 5-16 spent 50 weeks of the year, some as far as 600 miles away from their families. The work involves improving their standard of living and ensuring they have an environment adequate to give them the best opportunity for a strong education.
