Our branch recently organised a Tombola and Bake Sale event and raised £610 in aid of Yorkshire Children’s Trust.
As we are a new branch of Hays Travel, we really wanted to do something to get involved with the community. We held our event on one of the busiest days of the year as part of the annual Brighouse 1940’s weekend. All of our staff took part and got dressed up in 1940’s themed attire to sell cakes, buns and host a tombola outside of our shop. We were joined by customers, locals and also people visiting the 1940’s weekend event. The funds were raised from people purchasing tickets for the tombola, raffle and the baked goods sale at our stall.
Our manager, Rachel said, “The support we received from the people of Brighouse was overwhelming and we were soon inundated with gifts for our tombola and cake sale goods.”
“We raised over £600 for this worthy cause, which will help provide support for medical equipment or treatment, essential home modifications or help with hospital transport costs.”
