A woman has raised more than £80,000 for a children’s organisation after selecting it as her charity of the year.

Janet Clements collected £88,000 for Barnardo’s during her 12-month role as high chief ranger for the Foresters Friendly Society.

Her daughter Lucy Clements, along with Trish Slade, raised £13,500 of this sum by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.

Janet, from Upminster, in Havering, said: “I am thrilled and delighted at the generous support from the Foresters Friendly Society. As always, they have helped fundraise for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people within our society.

“Barnardo’s has always been a children’s charity close to my heart and I am delighted that we have raised over £88,000 to date to help support their great work.”

Helen Burley, corporate relationship manager at Barkingside-based charity Barnardo’s, said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to Janet for all her fundraising efforts and to all members of the Foresters for their support in helping to raise such a substantial amount of money for the charity.”
