A Great Afternoon For All At The Lymphoma Association Funday 2011

We were honoured to raise funds again this year for the wonderful Lymphoma Association based in Aylesbury. Our family funday was a wonderful occassion for all who attended at Friars Square shopping centre; although it rained all morning we were humbled to see how many of you came to show your support and gave so generously. Thank you so much.

We had a fantastic time meeting the residents of Aylesbury and beyond and it was incredibly moving to hear the difficulties that people face when raising and educating their children. We strive to bring the most relevant and inspiring material to children, parents and schools and from today we are pleased to have received some special requests for teaching aides that we will make free of charge and provide to all available online. We strongly believe by helping one child’s specific needs it may also benefit so many others both at home and across the world.

We were so proud to welcome Mr Graham Webster back to our event who was the Mayor Of Aylesbury last year, and still continues his hard work so selflessly to help others and raise funds and awareness for The Lymphoma Association for whom he did a skydive recently! Here we have a lovely snap of Graham in his Lymphoma purple shirt and Luca of Dizkis sporting our logo at the event.

Have A Look!

And this year we were joined by the delightful Christine from All-That-Glitters facepainting. She did a fantastic job of bringing a touch of magic to the cheerful little faces of the town and every customer came away amazed at the detail and quality of her work.

All afternoon it was adorable to see so many colourful faces walking through the shopping centre and they kept on coming back to bring along their friends and family! As you can see from the wonderful pictures there were a fair few requests for all kinds of faces and we just loved taking pictures of those cheeky grins! A great big thumbs up to Christine for doing such a fab and friendly job.

We were joined by the delightful Mix 96 crew of the local radio station and the very jolly Mix Monster who kept the children entertained handing out lots of balloons and freebies along with our very own Tracy of Dizkis.

It was fantastic to see so many children joining in and smiling! And some very glamourous young ladies were nice enough to pose for a very pretty in pink picture for our fanpage with our Dizkis sign and balloons!

In our colouring corner we were absolutely astounded by the wonderful pictures that you all drew with characters from our story books and worksheets. Don’t forget to have a look at our competition page to see the pictures we have included. We would like to say a very big thank you to all who have taken part today and made it such a day to remember.

We hope that you all enjoyed your time with us, that you take a little time to think about the charity we supported today, and that you use and enjoy the products that we have made free for you all.

We hope to see you all next year, and would love to hear your thoughts about how we did this year!

Many Thanks,
The Dizkis Team x
