We love getting involved in the local community - our most recent Charity Event was in April 2016. We cycled 517.5km in branch between 25th - 29th April to raise money for The Yorkshire Air Ambulance. We held a cake bake along side the cycling event and this helped us achieve our goal and raise £478.62 for the Charity. Many of our customers came to support us and we are very grateful for all of the donations received.
We were present at the annual Duck Race in 2015, helping to raise money for Scuba Diving for All. We sponsored The Ripon Armed Forces Weekend in 2015. In 2014 we walked The 3 Yorkshire Peaks to raise money for a little boy called Ollie to help him walk. We have attended, sponsored and supported events at The Ripon Rugby Club.
We have been recently supporting Ripon Lions in fundraising £1500 for a defibrillator. We have held many events in store over the last 2 months including a raffle and tombola, cake bake week, name the bear and guess the number of sweets in the jar to name a few. We had decided to do something epic to raise as much money as possible and this resulted in the Skydive that I did on Sunday 30th October 2016 at Peterlee. We have been really lucky to have so many customers, friends and family sponsor us and their generosity alongside the other events has raised £1670 so far! I'm so pleased that we have been able to purchase a defibrillator for Ripon and I know the leftover funds will go towards the next one that the hospital is currently fundraising for.
We recently sponsored the Ripon City Netball club and they now have a new set of bibs with the Hays Travel logo on. We also sponsored three trophies for team!
