Two fundraisers join together to support two causes

Posted onPosted on 21st Jan

Two Mansfield fundraisers are continuing their missions to support charities and work towards representing the town in the USA later in 2020.

Miss Mansfield and Sherwood Forest Amy Sunderland has already raised more than £3,500 for Dementia UK during her year in office — and aims to reach £5,000.

She said: “This charity holds a special place in my heart as my grandma has dementia. She no longer knows my name or that I am her granddaughter. But I will never forget the love that she has always given to me.”

Miss Mansfield Outstanding Teen Emily Plant — a student at the Brunts Academy, Mansfield — has beaten her £3,000 target as she continues to support the charity Coeliac UK.

She is also raising awareness of coeliac disease, which she suffers from.

The duo held fundraising events together in 2019 and have joined to host a Battle of the Couples event at The Towers, Mansfield, on Saturday, 8th February at 6.45pm.

The fun Mr and Mrs-style event will put couples head to head as they compete to find out who knows each other better.

There will be a prize for the winner and also a fundraising raffle with proceeds going towards Amy and Emily’s ambassador trip to Mansfield in Ohio, USA, in June to attend the Miss Ohio competition.

Tickets for Battle Of The Couples cost £5 and are available from or call Amy on 077199 10767.

Amy has also organised a Bublé Dinner and Dance Event at the 1861 Suite at One Call Stadium, Mansfield, on Friday, 31st January at 7pm.

It will feature an evening of music from local musician Lee Hutton, known locally for singing the music of Michael Buble, Frank Sinatra and the Ratpack.

Tickets are priced £20, including a buffet, and also available by contacting Amy.

Amy, who works as a medical secretary with the NHS, is also organising a bake sale project as part of Dementia UK’s Time For A Cuppa campaign on Friday, 6th March . She plans to involve local schools, businesses, cafes, care homes and hospitals, which can hold their own bake sales to raise funds and awareness for Dementia UK.

Amy aims to attend each bake sale throughout the day. Any businesses wanting to get involved should contact her.

Dementia UK helps families affected by dementia, including through the support of the work of Admiral Nurses, who provide expert guidance, one-to-one support and practical solutions. To support Amy go to

Emily added: “Coeliac UK helps people like me live with Coeliac Disease. They campaign, research, raise awareness and support people with the condition.”
