Our Southern region has gone all out to raise thousands of pounds for charities in recent years: car washing, cake-baking and even skydiving.
For example, the office broke its £10,000 target by collecting more than £11,180 in two years for the Red and White Appeal’s efforts to create a top transplant treatment centre Southampton General Hospital for patients across the south.
We energetically raised money by braving a sky dive, completing a London to Paris bicycle ride, paying for dress down days, car washing, raffles, lunches, cake baking, an auction – and much more.
For instance, the region donated £1,000 to Samuel’s Fund to help pay for a young Portsmouth boy with cerebral palsy undergo an operation in American to enable him to lead a more active lifestyle.
It goes on: the Rainbow Centre’s crisis appeal received £1,000 from dress down days and an auction, another dress down day raised £60 for Genes for Jeans Day, raffle tickets garnered £100 for Wessex Heartbeat and a mix of activities sent £152 to Breast Cancer Awareness.
