Here at Hays Travel Spennymoor, we’re passionate about helping our local community and raising funds for worthy causes. Currently, we sponsor both Ox Close Primary School in Spennymoor and Cleves Cross Primary School in Ferryhill. We work closely with them throughout the year, including sponsoring their Easter egg competitions and buying prizes for the best decorated egg for each year group. We also sponsor their end of term attendance awards and even give the children who’ve achieved 100% attendance a £5 Asda voucher!
For the last couple of years, we have also supported The Solan Connor Fawcett campaign to raise money for cancer research and The Kyran Richmond Fundraising Foundation, which is a fund to help raise money and awareness for batten disease. Kyran is the only child in north-east England who has this illness.
Recently an event was held in Spennymoor for the Solan Connor Fawcett Trust which we donated a £200 holiday voucher to raflle off and raise money for the trust.
We recently held a mystery trip to raise money for both charities and we raised a grand total of £625 which was split and donated to each charity. We arrived in York for our mystery trip and a brilliant day was enjoyed by all.
