Throwback Thursday for Children in Need

by | Jan 25, 2018 | News | 0 comments

 

Its #ThrowbackThursday, and we are looking back at a great achievement for a worthy cause.

Lynn Stearn recently received this certificate, confirming the amount of funds received from the efforts of all staff that supported Children in Need.

Coral staff  on Children In Need day decided to wear Pyjamas, others wore #CIN2017 clothing or ears, to raise funds for the amazing charity.

Lynn organised the event, showing her skills, planning and her passion for raising funds for this worthwhile charity, this was part of her NVQ course which was to organise an event, this we believe she  achieved over exceeding all of our expectations.

Lynn was happy to share her experience:

“Initially I wasn’t optimistic because of the way that Coral works, and the layout (the workers don’t usually pass through the offices and it would be difficult for office workers to liaise with the shop floor workers to raise money).  However, I was wrong!  As soon as people heard we were fundraising for a good cause, the dynamics changed!  The office staff started to rally round arranging a “pyjama” day, where people paid to come to work in their pyjamas!   We had a bric-a-brac sale (I brought some items from home that were ready to take to the charity shop), but I had some fun selling them instead”

“The grand finally was on the official Children in Need fundraising day in November 2017 with the Cake Sale – people just love to eat cake!  Coupled with some football cards and a large donation of £200 from Coral Products, we managed to raise a whopping £465.00!”

“We would definitely do it again.”

Brilliant work Lynn!
