I recently completed an embroidery design for a recurring customer of ours, Hannah. We have dealt with Hannah on several occasions over the past few years, and have been requested to set up various designs for a number of things. This latest design however seemed a little different, and Hannah was more than happy to share a little bit of information about it with us. Kaine’s Day was a fun day set up by Hannah and other family and friends of a young man called Kaine May. Kaine tragically lost his life in 2011 at the age of 14, following a road traffic collision. Through this tragic loss, Kaine’s family have tirelessly raised funds for the road safety charity Brake, to help raise awareness and support those affected by RTA’s.
The fun day was designed to raise money for this fantastic charity, whilst at the same time celebrating the life of Kaine, who has been described as “a talented, caring, popular and polite young man”. His love and passion for football had got him recognised by both West Ham and Chelsea Youth FC, and he had a very promising future ahead of him.
To date, an amazing £3527.80 has been raised in Kaine’s names for the Brake Charity, and that figure is still rising. Through fundraising, Kaine’s memory will live on in the hearts of many. If you would like to learn more about this charity, and the wonderful work they do, have a look at the links below:
Take a look at this great photo, showing some of the supporters who showed up for the fun day. As you can see, they are all wearing the vibrant royal blue colour of Kaines favourite football club, Chelsea FC.
