A BIG THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT’S TAKEN PART IN THIS YEARS FUNDRAISING ACTIVITIES.
Firstly, we’d just like to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to everyone who participated and helped make our guess the balloons in the car competition a success. We’ve managed to raise a total of £625.00 for the Demelza Hospice Care For Children on our JustGiving page, smashing our initial target of £250.00. The team has also raised an additional sum of money by participating in other internal fundraising activities that we’ve been running over the past few weeks.
We can now confirm that the total number of Balloons in the car was 403.
CONGRATULATIONS MRS. LORRAINE GRIMBLE.
We’re delighted to announce that the winner of our Guess the Balloons in the car contest is Mrs. Lorraine Grimble. Lorraine’s guess of 410 balloons was the closest of any entrant and thanks to our friends at Ebuyer.com , Lorraine has won a brand new Linx 10” Windows Tablet Device with Keyboard. Congratulations Lorraine! We hope that you enjoy your prize for many years to come and don’t forget to contact us if you need technical support 🙂
WE’VE ALSO BEEN RUNNING SOME OTHER FUNDRAISING ACTIVITIES.
April 13th was our official fundraising day for our corporate Charity, the Demelza Hospice Care For Children. In addition to our ‘Guess the Balloons in the car competition’ that we’ve been running over the past few weeks, we’ve also been participating in a number of internal fundraising activities.
Our Operations Manager Chris Beechend led from the front by cooking Breakfast for everyone in the office in exchange for a donation. Chris had a lot of hungry mouths to feed and he got a well-deserved big round of applause for slaving away in the kitchen for over 2 hours! I’m not too sure about his outfit though…
The staff were also encouraged to ‘dress down for the day’ in exchange for another generous donation. As you see from the picture, some of them took it more seriously than others!
We’ve also been running an internal Charity auction over the past two weeks. Members of staff were encouraged to donate any unwanted items to the auction and bid on any items that took their fancy! A diverse selection of items were donated to the auction, including a Nintendo Gameboy, a Donnay practice putting mat and a Clay Pigeon shooting experience!
Once again, a big thank you goes out to everyone that’s participated in our fundraising activities over the past few weeks. It’s been a great success and thanks to your generosity, we’ve managed to raise a healthy sum of money for the Demelza Children’s Hospice.
