In May, our fantastic fundraisers were out in force to help make a difference and support Children on the Edge. There were South Down treks, 5km runs, a marvellous musical performance and Charlotte from our fundraising team channelled her inner Paul Hollywood to judge a bake off competition.
Take a look at some of our favourite fundraisers this month…
Finley and Jensen ran 5km and raised £1,264!
Best friends Finley and Jenson decided together at school that they wanted to do something to raise money to support Ukrainian families, and chose to take part in a 5km run. The boys completed their 5km challenge along Worthing seafront, with their friends and family cheering them on. After completing their challenge, Finley and Jenson visited the Children on the Edge offices in Chichester to meet the team and tell them all about their challenge. The pair were incredibly conscientious and aware of the difficult situation for Ukrainian children fleeing their homes - we were blown away by their generosity and commitment to the cause.
The Body Shop’s Head Office Football Fundraiser
We were delighted to be invited to a special football match on a sunny Wednesday evening, organised by the Head Franchise Team at The Body Shop. ‘Head Office’ team took on the ‘Distribution Centre’ team in a head to head epic derby match, and after a tense 90 minutes the Distribution team took home the trophy. It was a fantastic event, raising over £xxx. Charlotte Callin said, “Well done to both teams, and congratulations to the Distribution team for their win! It was fantastic to be part of such a wonderful evening of fundraising from all the incredible Body Shop staff and their families."
