On every day from the 8th - 14th August Montezuma’s Chocolate Company hosted range of activities to raise money and make a ‘chocolate coated difference’ for Children on the Edge. They aimed to raise £1,000 throughout the week to go towards our Learning Centres for working children in Bangladesh. The amount actually raised by the end of the week was a stunning total of £1,837.93.
The week’s activities included raffles, competitions, taster evenings, lucky dips and a fantastic sponsored cycle in Chichester to round off the week. The cyclists chose from a three different routes depending on their abilities, taking in the scenery of the West Sussex countryside and stopping midway for a pub lunch.
We’d like to thank Montezuma’s staff and customers for all their contributions to the week. This work is giving hundreds of working children the chance to enjoy their childhood in a fuller way.
The total raised from the week is enough to pay a year’s rent for all three of our Learning Centres. That’s giving 300 working children a safe place to go and learn, rest and play every day for a year.
Pop into your local Montezumas, pick up some chocolate and say well done! Each 5p paper bag you buy to carry your chocolate in goes straight to our projects.
