Last year we were raising money for our chosen charity, KidsOut. As of 1st December, we launched a Christmas Charity Campaign as a final push for the year to raise as much money as possible in time for Christmas. We set ourselves a target of £300 for the month across our two centres based in Leighton Buzzard and Bury St Edmunds.
We set up various fundraising activities in order to generate as many donations as possible, these included x2 luxury Christmas hamper raffles, football scratch cards, teddy sale, Christmas quiz and jumper day.
An online donation page was created in order to open up the donations to those outside of the business as well as for those that do not carry cash! This was a great opportunity as we received the majority of our donations online, as well as an anonymous £300 donation! Thank you to our very generous mystery donator, we are extremely grateful for your help!
We are delighted to announce that we raised a grand total of £725.80 in just one month of fundraising! Thank you to everyone for your support and donations towards our great achievement!
KidsOut were delighted to receive this donation. Chief executive Gordon Moulds said: “The support we have received from C&C Training this year has been quite staggering. This will virtually cover the cost of getting the toys to the refuges across the country so we are truly grateful.”
