Our Chosen Charity – 2019
At the start of each year we choose a charity to support through various office-based and external fundraising activities. This year we have selected Hadrian School in Newcastle, a school which caters for the needs of pupils aged between two and eleven years with a range of disabilities including complex and severe learning difficulties.
At the end of last year we sent Gary O’Santa (O’Hara) from our Head Office to the school and found out what amazing facilities they have, and how greatly they enhance the lives of the children who attend the school. This said, they rely heavily on donations and are in need of essential items. This year we will hold a number of charity events to help raise money towards fundraising projects, which include:
- A mini bus to take pupils on recreational trips
- An outdoor activity centre
- Equipment for a ‘sensory corridor’ in the school
- Sports equipment
- Bespoke disability chairs
We will hold regular office-based fundraising days throughout the year and the following events are in planning:
- Charity Boxing Event, in association with MTK Newcastle
- 5-a-side football tournament
- High Street Group Trek Experience
Any donations we receive will go towards helping raise money for their fundraising projects.
