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.'
