Charity Raffle raises £7500
Following the success of our 50th Anniversary Trade show on June 14th, we have now distributed the money raised from the charity raffle held at the event. The raffle raised a staggering £5800 and the 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 enough for their amazing support of the raffle, we were overwhelmed by their generosity and thrilled to have raised such a fantastic amount for so many worthy causes”.
We are continuing to fundraise throughout our 50th anniversary year, raising money for Cancer Research UK.
