Speedclad's Easter Afternoon Tea raises money for local charities
At the start of the year Speedclad's staff nominated and voted for local charities that they wanted the company to fundraise for in 2019:
- Bloodrun EVS is a voluntary service providing urgent out-of-hours transport of blood, samples and documents to North East NHS Hospitals.
- Restarting Hearts in Northallerton is installing defibrillators in the town and nearby villages and working to raise awareness of them to help save lives.
- DonMentia is fundraising for people in Doncaster affected by dementia.
On Thursday 18th April we launched our calendar of fundraising events with an 'Easter Afternoon Tea' at our Head Office. Our staff and friends and family baked up a storm and we had a huge array of sweet Easter treats, an Easter Egg raffle and a special visit from volunteer bikers and support team from Bloodrun EVS, who were fantastic at letting our visitors know about the amazing work Bloodrun does, as well as letting visitors' children (and most of our staff!) sit on the motorbikes. A huge thank you to all who baked, helped, hosted and visited; we're delighted to have raised £406 from this small event and can't wait for the next one.... watch this space!
