Amazing Easter efforts for cracking causes
Branches across the nine counties we cover have come up with some egg-cellent fundraising and community engagement ideas for Easter.
Building society and estate agency colleagues have embarked on a series of colouring contests, chocolate egg raffles and other competitions to help raise awareness of organisations in their areas and vital funds for local charities.
- Our Firth Park branch are holding an Easter egg raffle until 23 March with all money raised going to the Sheffield Helipad Appeal
- Staff in Eastwood are also undertaking a raffle, with proceeds being given to Little Princess Trust – a charity who provide real hair wigs for children who have lost their own through cancer treatment
- In Long Eaton, branch colleagues have linked up with Grange Primary School to launch a colouring competition (entries will be on display in-branch throughout the Easter holidays) and will also be holding a raffle
- Stapleford branch are taking part in Wear a Hat Day and holding a cake sale on 24 March as part of Brain Tumour Awareness Week
- On the same day they will also judge an Easter Bonnet Design competition they are running in conjunction with the town’s Fairfield Primary School. All entries will stay on display in-branch until the end of March
- In Ruddington, branch staff linked up with The Hermitage Preschool and will be donating cash they make in their raffle to them. There is also an Easter egg colouring competition for children from the preschool and their colourful entries are being showcased in-branch.
Ruddington senior customer adviser Rebekah Ward said: “It’s fantastic to see so much support across the business for local organisations and charities.
“The Nottingham prides itself in being at the heart of community networks and these events do exactly that, as well as providing Easter fun for everyone!”
