dlc’s fundraising day for Teenage Cancer Trust is a massive success
On Friday 18th July, we hosted a fundraising day in aid of our chosen charity for 2014, Teenage Cancer Trust. It was great to see staff taking part, having fun and raising money for a great cause, the day was a massive success. In total we raised £1016.28 of which dlc will match giving an overall total of £2032.56 for Teenage Cancer Trust.
The theme for the day was TV programmes with associated activities taking place across the business. The aim of the day was to raise as much money as we could for our chosen charity, with a small charge being applied to the different activities. In addition to this staff members had the option to nominate their colleagues, Team Leaders or managers, who were given a ‘buy out’ option to avoid the nomination. Staff also took part in ‘dress up’ or ‘dress down’ for which everyone contributed £1. The activities that took place throughout the day included:
- I’m a Celebrity Get me Out of Here – Bush trucker trials
- Deal or no Deal raffle
- The Impossible Quiz
- Play your Cards Right lucky dip
- The Great British Bake Off
- Tour De Brackley
- Balloon Release
- Sweet Shop
dlc have carried out several events leading up to the fundraising day to raise donations for our 2014 charity, including a company golf day. dlc continue to plan fundraising events in the future, with a company football match taking place in August, with all monies raised being donated to this inspiring charity.
Upon receiving our donation, Judith Anderson local fundraising coordinator for Teenage Cancer Trust in East Anglia commented:
“I wanted to thank you on behalf of Teenage Cancer Trust and all the young people we help for the incredible amount of time and energy for all your fundraising events so far. Not only have you raised vital funds but you have raised much needed awareness about Teenage Cancer Trust and the work that we do. The money you have raised for us will allow us to continue to provide services to Teenage and Young Adults aged between 13 – 24 years from East Anglia who have been diagnosed with cancer.”
Teenage Cancer Trust also educates young people in schools about cancer to help improve the speed and quality of diagnosis. Teenage Cancer Trust relies on donations to fund its vital work to help transform the lives of young people with cancer. For more information please visit www.teenagecancertrust.org
