Springfords Just Keep On Giving

18 April 2016
 

Springfords Employee Charity Committee rounded off another fun packed year of fundraising in 2015 with our annual kids Christmas party, which Connor Dymond, nephew of Kerrie Jones in our Tax Group, is clearly enjoying.

Anything to do with food is always popular with Springfords staff so our soup rota and tuck shop continue to raise lots of money, as does our annual bake-off competition.  To try to burn some calories this year we also held a “Querky Quiz” which combined quizzing with physical activities – you can’t beat racing around the office at lunchtime with an egg and spoon!

The good news is that our efforts in 2015, which also included dressing down days, photo quizzes, sweepstakes and raffles, resulted in just over £3,000 being raised.

The Committee met in February this year and the following charities, nominated by partners and staff, all received donations:

  • Children in Need
  • Marie Curie
  • Comic Relief
  • Wear It Pink for breast cancer
  • Jeans for Genes
  • Macmillan/Make A Wish/Save The Children – Text Santa
  • Reverse Rett Syndrome
  • Nordoff Robbins Music Charity
  • Saltersgate School, Dalkeith – playground project
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Olivia Lochhead – Youth World Cup funding (American Horse Association)
  • Guide Dogs
  • Midlothian Food Bank
  • Medecins Sans Frontieres
  • Muir Maxwell Trust
  • Crisis At Christmas…………
 

…..and we’ve already started our 2016 campaign, raising over £130 for Sports Relief playing cards, dominoes and darts tournaments – we even resurrected “Spot The Ball”. 

Pictured are the three lovely lady winners, Caroline Morgan, Nadine Blackhall and Laura Houston from our Business Group with their “no expense spared” trophies.

We'll need to start planning lots more fun and games if we are to at least match our 2015 total!  Any ideas? - let us know, contact Jane on jcarmichael@springfords.com
