Dear all Supporters of BCE

Thank you all for supporting BCE in all the events we run and for your monthly commitments for the last two years.

BCE wishes you a Happy Ethiopian New Year.

May the New Year, 2006, gets you thorough with Good Health, Prosperity and Happiness in your life.
Taking this opportunity, BCE's Trustees would like to thank you all for your participation in the various events (dinner in London and Reading, 10k walk in London and Nottingham, 10k London Run, London 2 Brighton walk, street fund collection and concert), for your monthly commitments and one-off donation payments from the UK, USA and Europe that enabled us to reach 15% of our target of a million GBP.
We appreciate all volunteers' involvement in all aspects of the above events to raise fund for BCE. In addition to that, it was overwhelming seeing kids involvement in the walk event and baking fairy cakes to sell and raise funds.
As we start the Ethiopian New Year we have good news to tell you: To facilitate generous individuals/organisations and to speed up the collection of fund for cancer treatment, BCE has been registered legally to function in the USA as a non-profit charity!

Dear all BCE Supporters,

On Saturday 25th of May 2013, You walked a 10K charity walk with BCE to raise funds towards its ultimate goal, to make a difference in the lives of cancer sufferers and their siblings who reside in Ethiopia.

You didn't only walk the 10k charity walk but you also knocked on the doors of friends and sponsors asking for their support for this good cause you believe in and spread awareness about lack of cancer treatment in Ethiopia.

The trustees of BCE would like to say thank you for your participation on the walk, for facing the challenges to raise funds online and offline and for your personal gift in support of the walk and its purpose. We congratulate you for your effort to raise more than £22,227.99 (this includes £991.00GBP raised by Jill Demilew who took a tough challenge and walked from London to Brighton on 25&26 May (30hrs) to raise funds for BCE).

THANK YOU AGAIN AND WELL DONE
