Annual Christmas Charity Raffle
We would like to thank all our staff who have once again supported our annual Christmas Charity Raffle by buying lots of tickets. Also our directors, suppliers and customers who kindly donated prizes for our Annual Charity Raffle. We raised an amazing £13,000!!!! This has been added to the money raised from the Manchester 10K giving a grand total of £14,000.
We had a total of 155 prizes donated from Suppliers, Customers and our Directors. These were varied and included a 65” Ultra HD Screen Smart TV, iPads, wine, meals out, overnight hotel stays, crates of wine, Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and much more. We only sell tickets to our staff and so to raise this amount is fantastic. Once again our staff have supported our fund raising by buying lots of tickets. The Office Staff also had a Christmas Jumper Day which added additional funds.
The money raised will be split equally between our two chosen charities, North West Air Ambulance and 42nd Street.
North West Air Ambulance
It costs £9 per minute for every mission by North West Air Ambulance. The North West Air Ambulance Charity takes advanced healthcare to scene; reaching, treating and transferring patients to definitive care as quickly as possible and working collaboratively with their partners to ensure they are transferred to the best treatment centre thus improving chances of survival and reducing the risk of long term injury. The service is funded by the generosity of the public through donations, fundraising activity, lottery membership and through a network of retail outlets, who provide vital charitable funding to keep the service flying.
42nd Street is a Greater Manchester charity that supports young people aged 11-25 years with their emotional wellbeing and mental health, promoting choice and creativity. They champion young person centred approaches that demonstrate local impact and have national significance. They offer a range of individual therapeutic support and encourage and support young people to have a voice, and access opportunities to learn, develop new skills, be creative, have fun and demonstrate to themselves and others that they are able to recover, manage their mental health and wellbeing and achieve their full potential. They deliver services at their Manchester city centre base, in community venues, arts and cultural centres, and in schools and colleges to make sure our services are accessible.
Thank you once again for your support – without the kind donations from you we would not be able to raise this amount.
