The lovely Sharp family have supported An Hour For Others in many ways since day one. Alan, Liz and their 2 young daughters Ruby (10) & Isla (7) have volunteered as well as fundraised over the years in a variety of ways. The support from good hearted local people has been so important to us in helping us grow and raise awareness across the City and beyond. Alan tells us his reasons for becoming involved as a family.
'Volunteering and fundraising for AHFO is a great way of giving something back to our community. My wife Liz has run a full Marathon and I have run a half marathon to raise funds by way of sponsors, but you can help in other ways too. Myself, wife and our 2 daughters aged 7 & 10 got involved in a clean up project for a community centre which was a great experience and it was great to see the impact it had on our girls who love making a difference, its a good way of showing the kids how important it is to help others. My daughter's have also done bucket collections at a local football club. I would advise anyone to get involved with AHFO and make a difference, the feeling of helping others is like a buzz. you feel good about yourself as well as knowing you are doing your bit to help create a better society.'
