Roman’s Halloween extravaganza

Published:  11 November, 2009

DURHAM: Roman has raised over £2000 so far for their chosen charity, Options. Options is a project delivered by the Newton Aycliffe based charity ‘Pioneering Care Partnership’.



Roman’s Charity Committee have organised two successful fundraising events so far this year, which have involved both Roman staff and the Options Team. The latest fundraising event was a Halloween themed games night, and all the attendees got in the spirit of things for a good cause and dressed up in fancy dress. The night’s events included all the traditional Halloween games and everyone who attended had an enjoyable evening.


The Roman Charity Committee is now more determined to raise even more money for Options, and will continue to work closely with Options to organise fund-raising events that will encourage everyone to get involved.


Roman’s chairman, Gerry Osborne comments; “We are extremely pleased with our fundraising efforts and are committed to increasing the current fundraising fund significantly over coming months. We are currently busy organising a number of events to take place in the New Year. We feel very privileged to have been given the opportunity to work closely with a locally based charity like Options, who are working towards such a worthwhile cause.”
