Over The Moon Charity Link to Easy Fund Raising

our latest news

The first ever Over The Moon Bake Off took place this November 2016

Over £1200 was raised by forty bakers working in teams of four to create an Over The Moon show stopper cake. Miranda Gore Brown, Great British Bake Off finalist from the first ever series, and cake maker extraordinaire Ondrje Vlcek judged the cakes and choose the winner. Congratulations go to The Four Baking Bells for their magnificent cake and huge thanks to everyone who took part and for their fabulous creations.

The money raised will go towards an iPad for a very brave young girl, who up until the age of 9 was happy and healthy. Now she is battling with Bone Cancer, Cardiomyopathy resulting with a full stroke, leaving her with paralysis of her right side and has had to undergo a heart transplant and has non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.



A huge thank you to the The Entertainer Toy Shop…

For their generous donation of £750.

The Entertainer, kindly nominated Over The Moon as their local charity for its ‘Jack Gives Back’ programme. The money was donated, by its customers via Pennies the digital charity box.

Apple picking October 2016

Once again Ellie and Andy Kinnear of Orchard Park Farm, Lurgashall very kindly invited people to come and pick apples in the Autumn in aid of Over the Moon and raised £190. We are deeply grateful to them.

The money raised will pay for a bespoke sunshade and rain cover for a little girl aged 3, living in Aldershot, who suffers with severe epilepsy and cerebral palsy. This will enhance the quality of her life. We are grateful to all those who contributed to this.



Tennis Tournament May 2016

In May we hosted our first ever OTM Tennis Tournament, forty people played and then came together for a delicious lunch. We raised well over a £1000, so very many thanks to all who participated.

“How good to hear how the money is spent and even better to know it goes straight to where it’s needed and can make such a difference . A delight to support Over The Moon”



Look what are doing this Spring 2016

Meet Deisel who is being trained by Autism Support Dogs UK

We are delighted to donate £5000 towards the fusing of Deisel by Autism Support Dogs UK for a little girl who suffers from severe Autism.



Christmas Wreath Workshop

We had a fabulous couple of days creating beautiful Christmas wreaths with Laura Fisher of WildWillow Flowers. Thank you to all of you who supported us, we raised over £900.

With this money we will be supporting a 12 year old boy with server learning difficulties and acute Autism and enable us to buy equipment to enhance his Individual Education Plan, to increase his communication and to enable him to make informed choices as he is non verbal.



Apple picking October 2015

Ellie and Andy Kinnear of Orchard Park Farm, Lurgashall very kindly invited people to come and pick apples in the Autumn in aid of Over the Moon and raised £216.

The money raised is going to buy a Crelling Harness and extra strap for use in a car for a little girl called Laura. Laura who is 11 years old has been diagnosed with Lennox Gastaust Syndrome with server epilepsy and learning difficulties. Laura has one to one support in school to ensure her safety at all times. Laura displays some very challenging behaviour both in school and at home. The harness has become a must for Laura as it offers a certain degree of restraint for children with challenging behaviour, thus making is safer for Laura, Laura’s mother and her carer, when driving her to and from school.
