The Raworths team had a busy month in June hosting and participating in numerous events, all to help raise funds for the Harrogate Homeless Project, the chosen Charity of the Year.
A broad range of activities took place, including an evening styling event for the ladies which received generous support from Bobbi Brown’s make-up artists and local boutique Violet. Each person received a glass of bubbles and enjoyed the live demonstrations whilst also being given their own make up and styling tips.
A slightly more strenuous activity was the Harrogate 10K where a team of 16 tackled the tough course in the hottest conditions the county has seen in quite some time. The staff were taking part in the Berwins Corporate Challenge which saw teams compete to raise money for their chosen charities.
Finally, staff gave up their time to help sell raffle tickets before and during the interval at a concert performed by Harrogate Symphony Orchestra, held at the Royal Hall.
In total the team raised an impressive £1,000 from the three activities, making a significant dent in the annual fundraising target.
Zoe Robinson, Raworths Managing Partner said “It’s fantastic that we’ve managed to raise so much in one month. We have strived to offer staff a variety of fundraising opportunities, making them as inclusive as possible and this has certainly paid off. We’ve many more events lined up for the rest of the year and look forward to having some more fun with the team whilst raising money for the Harrogate Homeless Project.”
