Quinton residents joined together for FeBREWary, a coffee morning which raises funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. The event was organised by local Labour candidates, Lauren Rainbow and Sam Forsyth, at St Boniface Church. The morning raised £101.12 for the charity and saw support from local councillor Kate Booth.
The FeBREWary event received generous donations of homemade cakes from the community as well as the kind support from local Quinton bakery, The Crusty Cottage Craft Bakery. The Co-operative also donated the tea and coffee for the event.
Lauren Rainbow said, “It was brilliant to see the community really coming together in support of a fantastic cause and is something that Sam and I will be looking to repeat. This money will go on to help fund more research into possible new and life-changing treatments as well as support individuals and families living with the illness.”
Sam Forsyth said, “Many people still don't understand the reality of life for those living with Cystic Fibrosis and the extent of the pain it causes and life it shortens. I was so pleased to be able to host this event with Lauren. The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is a charity that is particularly close to my heart, and it to be able to raise this monev for them.”
