We did it for Framework
We’re really proud of our fantastic support of homelessness charity Framework who we have worked with since 2010. This is the third year we have sponsored the charity’s annual ‘Do it for Framework Day’ which invites supporters to do something to raise money and awareness of the cause.
As well as wearing orange, we helped out with a ‘supermarket sweep’ to collect donations for a food store, collected loose change in branch and also held a ‘guess the sweets in the jar’ contest contributing to more than £5,000 in pledges on the day from across the region.
Donations made by the society to the charity’s online auction including Nottingham Forest Football Club and AEGON Open tennis experiences raised £215.
Chief Executive David Marlow commented ‘Fundraising is just one of the ways in which we support Framework and the beauty of ‘Do it for Framework Day’ is that it not only raises cash, but more importantly, raises awareness of homelessness, the causes and the solutions.
‘We’re very proud to include Framework as one of our charity partners and work alongside them on spreading the word of the incredible work they do in our local communities.’
