7th February 2017, 16:40pmWe were delighted to present local charity Children North East with a cheque for £3,000 this week, as part of our ongoing fundraising efforts.
The donation was raised through our annual Christmas charity raffle in December 2016, and is the largest amount we have raised through staff contributions since the initiative began. In total, we have raised over £18,000 for the charity since 2013.
Children North East will use the money to support children and young people and their parents within the region.
As part of their own 125th anniversary celebrations in 2016; the charity awarded Godfrey Syrett honorary ‘125 Club’ membership in recognition of our continued support and generosity of our staff.
Carol Taylor, Senior Fundraiser at Children North East, said:
“We are so pleased to have Godfrey Syrett as a member of our 125 Club and it's our way of saying thank you to the team for their continued support and generosity they have shown Children North East. Their amazing fundraising has enabled us to make a massive difference to families and children across our region."
