We presented our 2017 Charity of the Year with a cheque following a year of fundraising. We were delighted to announce in 2016 that our selected Charity of the Year for 2017, chosen by our colleagues, were Contact the Elderly. The charity organises free monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties for people aged 75 or over who live alone.
We invited the charity to our head office in Birmingham to present them with a cheque worth 1% of our annual profits and as expected we presented the cheque by hosting our very own tea party with delicious sweet treats and plenty of tea and coffee!
Our wonderful range of fundraising activities throughout the year included: a Christmas tombola (with unwanted gifts), spring clean sale (books and DVDs), Easter egg competition, a bake-off, summer sports day, Halloween tuck shop, and a multicultural meal. It’s been great to see the charity attend some of these fundraising events.
We’re proud to have been part of your journey to continue to help and support older people. We wish you all the best with your work.
