Employees at Vero held a fund raising event to support the BBC’s Children in Need on Friday 18th November, collecting a total of £427.60! This smashed the team’s original fund raising target. The amount was then matched by a contribution from the company, bringing the grand total up to £855.20! Money was raised with activities including a raffle, bake sale and a ‘Guess the Pudsey’ competition.
BBC Children in Need, which helps children and young people in communities across the UK, is a charity that has really resonated with our staff. We are delighted to support this wonderful charity with our donation.
In addition to staff contributions, the fund raising event was supported by a number of local businesses, who generously donated prizes. These include:
- Gaynors Cakes MK
- Middleton’s Restaurant
- Woburn Abbey House and Grounds
- MK Dons
- Purple Mango Indian Restaurant
- Planet Ice
- Kingfisher Country Club
Nikki Day, Sales Office Administrator at Harland Simon and organiser of the fundraising activities, said:
“We would like to thank our generous sponsors, who have helped us succeed in raising so much money. It’s been great as we are not only helping a great cause, but today has also reinforced the team spirit at Harland Simon.”
