On Friday 3rd July as Wimbledon fever was intensifying we decided it made the perfect theme for further fundraising in aid of our chosen charity for 2015, Middlesbrough MS Therapy Centre (see article of March 2015). Our staff prepared and hand delivered portions of strawberries and cream to friends, family and to staff in other offices within the Cleveland Business Centre. It was a huge success and people were very generous with their donations in return for this Wimbledon themed treat on a hot summers day. As well as the sale of strawberries and cream we also operated “Dress Down Friday” in our office allowing staff to come in casual clothing, for a fee of course! In total the firm raised from these 2 activities and generous donations a grand total of £101.20 in aid of Middlesbrough MS Therapy Centre. This will be added to the funds collected as the year progresses and presented to the charity later in the year. Thank you to all those who purchased strawberries and cream or who made a kind donation.
If anybody wishes to make a donation, it’s never too late and we are happy to receive them and forward these on for you. Alternatively if you would just like to find out more about the services provided by Middlesbrough MS Therapy Centre, stop in and speak to our staff or collect a leaflet from our reception desk.
