The events have been held, a great time had by all, but for our Fund Week team and all those who got involved up and down the country, the hard work has well and truly paid off.
Ministry of Justice and DWP London and North West officially supported the Fund Week campaign. A special week devoted to fundraising and raising awareness of the Civil Service in-house charity, whilst having fun.
Staff from these departments and many others got into the spirit of Fund Week by organising raffles, quizzes, cake sales, karaoke nights, dress down days, and salsa evenings, to name but a few.
Clare Bridges, Fundraising Initiatives Manager said, “I am delighted to announce that the total amount generated for Fund Week exceeded expectations at £11,618”.
In addition Ministry of Justice and DWP donated 10p per completed staff survey. This has generated a further £5,000 from MOJ. We are still awaiting the final total from DWP but anticipate that this will bring the Fund Week total to approximately £20,000.
Clare adds, “We’re so grateful to all those that supported Fund Week, whether they bought a raffle ticket, spent time organising or took part in events. Your support of this campaign will make a massive difference to someone’s life”.
We’re already starting to think about making the 2010 event even bigger and better. If you have a query about our annual fundraising extravaganza, or want to get involved please contact our Fundraising Initiatives Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
