90th Birthday Fundraising Donation to Chestnut Tree House
£1,000 raised and donated to Chestnut Tree House.
When we looked at ways of celebrating our company’s 90th Birthday event, we decided to enjoy a day out with all of our staff and to include a positive gesture of giving something back to our local communities where our shops are based.
We have previously supported a smaller, local hospice – but realised that Chestnut Tree House had a larger catchment area and when researching the hospice it was clear that this was an appropriate charity for us to support.
Most of us have children and grandchildren and so it was a positive emotional act that would help children and their families.
Hospices do not receive significant financial support from the Government, so we knew that our donation would be warmly welcomed.
Our celebration was held at the family fun day at Brighton Racecourse and we decided that a raffle was a good way of involving everyone.
Many of our suppliers donated prizes and the generosity of our staff made the donation an inclusive and fun event which raised £1,000 for the charity.
