£17,500 Raised for Charity during 2018
We are thrilled to announce the grand total for our 50th Anniversary Fundraising is a staggering £17,500.
A year long campaign of fundraising events for Cancer Research UK plus a generous donation from the Directors raised £10,000 with a further £500 from our anniversary trade show raffle bringing the total for CRUK to £10,500.
In addition to this, our very successful 50th Anniversary Trade show on June 14th, enabled us to raise a further £5800 during the charity raffle held at the event. The raffle's grand total was then increased to £7500 by a further donation from the company.
Staff were asked to nominate their favourite charities and a total of 15 charities benefited from the money raised, each receiving £500.00. The 15 charities were; Cancer Research UK, Julia’s House Children’s Hospice, Wiltshire Air Ambulance, Wiltshire Mind, Dorothy House, Alzheimer’s Society, Sane, Sands, British Heart Foundation, MS Society, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Ben Automotive Charity, Diabetes UK, JDRF and HemiHelp.
Alison Cook, Financial Director, said “we cannot thank our brilliant customers, staff and suppliers enough for their amazing support during our anniversary year, we have been overwhelmed by their generosity and thrilled to have raised such a fantastic amount for so many worthy causes”.
