As a fast-growing company, it’s not often we get to see all of our colleagues in one room so our quarterly company meetings are always a great opportunity to catch up with everyone and find out what is planned for the quarter ahead.
One of the big takeaways from our first meeting of the year is the announcement of our first Charity of the Year! In 2019 we will be supporting and raising money for Richard House Children’s Hospice. Although the hospice is based in East London, they provide essential care and support to children and their families from all over London.
We are aiming to raise £10,000 for them this year and to kick off the fundraising we held a raffle at the end of our meeting and raised over £320.
We would like to say a big thank you to the following businesses who donated prizes for the raffle:
This raffle prize had people hooked! Our favourite seafood restaurant Wright Brothers very kindly donated a £50 voucher which was snapped up quickly.
A firm favourite of ours – and the very tasty £50 voucher for The Grocer at London City Island was gratefully received.
Our new neighbours at Royal Wharf nailed it with their donation of two £25 vouchers.
Cherry Pick People
The final prize of the evening left us flying high after Cherry Pick People surprised us with their donation of a helicopter lesson!
Well done to everyone who won one of the above prizes, or the champagne, vodka and chocolates donated by JOHNS&CO.
A big thank you again goes out to everyone who donated something to our raffle, and to everyone who took part and helped us raise over £300 for Richards House Children’s Hospice.
