Christmas Sale (December 2017)
Saturday 9th December was the date for the 2017 Christmas Sale. Clare Taylor’s team surpassed themselves this year, making 60 wreaths in some of the coldest conditions on record. Thanks to the team and everyone else involved on the day the event raised £3,600. Over the last 11 years, Clare and her team have made close on 500 wreaths and directly raised £12,500. They have played a key role in our Christmas sales over this period generating over £25,000 for the Trust.
Clare is now taking a well earned retirement, and we would like to give her our very special thanks for her massive contribution.
Marathon Month (April 2017)
April has been a Marathon month for the Trust.
On 2 April, Ben’s cousins Ellie and Owen ran the Liverpool half marathon in 2 hours 55 minutes and 2 hours 6 minutes respectively, raising over £700 for the Trust. And on 9 April, Ben’s cousin Sarah completed the Paris marathon in 4 hours 36 minutes raising over £1,500 for the Trust. Congratulations and thanks to you all!
Christmas Sale (December 2016)
Clare Taylor’s Christmas wreaths were as popular as ever this year, with her and her team making and selling 54 in support of this year’s Christmas sale on 10 December at Crofton. The event raised £3,000, and once again we are hugely grateful to Clare, her helper
s and everyone who supported the event to help make it such a success.
Lloyd’s Charity Awards (December 2016)
Each year, Lloyd’s of London awards grants to charities in recognition of work that members of the insurance community have done in support of their chosen good causes. This year, out of nearly 300 applications, one of the twenty awards was to recognise Dawn Herbert for the work that she has done in support of the Trust. And in addition to the award of £2,000 that Dawn collected at a reception on the underwriting floor, her employer Chaucer has awarded a further £1,000. A great Christmas bonus for the Trust, and our thanks to Dawn, Lloyd’s of London and Chaucer.
