As part of our local community partnership activity, we recently held a fundraiser at Temple Park Leisure Centre for our local football team, Horsley Hill FC. We hosted a raffle and bingo at the event, and even donated a £50 Hays Travel voucher as one of the prizes. Overall, our branch managed to raise more than £400 to go towards sports bags, football strips and water bottles. We chose to get behind the team as it’s a new club in the community that needed a helping hand.
We also donated a hamper of sweets, chocolates and wine to the summer fete held at Ashley Road Primary School. This went towards Ashely Road Charity. Furthermore, we donated £300 to the local line dancing group for the Alzheimer’s Society in South Shields. Our staff even attended this event and joined in on the line dancing!
Our most recent donation was for the Charlie Cookson Foundation Ball, which took place as part of the Charlie Cookson Foundation. We donated a hamper for this event too, with lots of great prizes inside!
