Employees at Sequence have beaten their previous annual fundraising totals by reaching an amazing £18,600 raised for CLIC Sargent in 2016.
Last year, employees at Sequence threw themselves fully into this longstanding partnership, and raised over £18,600 to support children and young people with cancer. This is a huge increase from the total of £11,800 in 2015.
Employee's fundraising activities were diverse; ranging from in-branch events, to participation in various runs and challenges. Highlights included a football tournament, a raffle of a mini bike, the annual Partners’ Ball and participation in Prudential RideLondon. Employees always do a fantastic job of involving their local communities in their fundraising activities.
Special mentions must go to Chris Rosindale and David Pavitt, who completed the Virgin Money London Marathon. Chris then went on to organise the ever successful Barnard Marcus Christmas Jumper Day, which raised £1,560. PR executive and manager of the partnership, Isabelle Thompson, also bravely took on the challenge of a skydive, raising over £800.
With the partnership’s overall total creeping ever nearer to the big £400,000, 2017 is set to be another exciting year!
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Catherine Cadman said: "Everyone at Sequence has surpassed themselves this year with this impressive sum of funds raised. It is so amazing to see the partnership go from strength to strength.
"Thank you very much as always to all the employees for joining CLIC Sargent in the fight for young lives against cancer. We want young cancer patients to thrive, not just survive; with your support, you’re helping us to do that. Here’s to the year ahead!"
