£34 raised for Comic Relief

Tue, 10/03/2015 - 5:42pm

Our monthly 'dress down' day raised funds on their behalf.

On the first Monday of each month IS staff can come to the Chapel in their casual clothes in return for a donation of £2 to the charity being supported. Staff can nominate any good cause they feel deserves a bit of extra help. This month many people are raising funds for Comic Relief, so we thought we'd join in!

 

£45 raised for Amy & Friends in February

Wed, 11/02/2015 - 3:48pm

Our monthly 'dress down' day raised funds on their behalf.

On the first Monday of each month IS staff can come to the Chapel in their casual clothes in return for a donation of £2 to the charity being supported. Staff can nominate any good cause they feel deserves a bit of extra help. This month we supported Amy & Friends, a charity formed to facilitate the support of children and families suffering from Cockayne Syndrome (CS), as suggested by Michael Coaker in our Development team.

Michael has friends with a son who suffers from a genetic condition and sent the team this message from his friends following the donation: "They were overwhelmed and very appreciative of everyone’s donation to an organisation which supported them for many years. They asked me to pass on their thanks to everyone and thought it was particularly appropriate that we raised the money through our ‘Jeans day’ as they have supported ‘Jeans for Genes day’ having appeared in a half hour documentary about living with genetic disorders".
