Freebridge Employees Raise Record Amount For Local Charities
Freebridge Community Housing employees have raised a record £6,054 for their chosen charities after putting on a range of fundraising activities throughout 2015.
The charities that Freebridge chose to support in 2015 were all local - King’s Lynn Samaritans, the Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Centre at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and East Anglian Air Ambulance.
Representatives of the three charities were invited to a special presentation lunch where they were each given a cheque for £2,018. They also met with some of the employees who had supported and organised the fundraising activities.
Fundraising activities included a golf day at Middleton golf course, various raffles for employees and guessing the weight of all the new Freebridge babies!
Tony Hall, Chief Executive of Freebridge said: “Each year our employees come up with new and exciting ways to raise money for our chosen charities and 2015 was no exception.”
“Having the opportunity to meet representatives from the charities and listening to their plans is always fantastic and fits so well with our vision of ‘A Better West Norfolk.’ I look forward to seeing what fundraising activities our great staff team will come up with to raise money for good causes in 2016!”
Mary Dunn, from East Anglian Air Ambulance said “I would like to thank Freebridge for their continued support of East Anglian Air Ambulance and for the fantastic amount raised. It is only with the support of people like the staff of Freebridge that we are able to continue providing our lifesaving medical service and this wonderful donation will go towards the cost of that service.”
Freebridge employees have already chosen and begun planning the best ways to raise money for East Anglian Air Ambulance, West Norfolk Mind and West Norfolk RSPCA, their chosen charities for 2016.
