Alsford Timber raises the bar for charity

Published:  28 November, 2012

RUXLEY: Alsford Timber has raised a massive £6868 for Demelza over the year due to the efforts of the Alsford Trainee Management team.

The trainees were set a challenge to raise money for Demelza Hospice Care for Children over the course of 2012 which was achieved through organising events and activities throughout the year.

These events included a triathlon and celebrating the Demelza ‘Go Dotty’ week with dress down days, cake sales and dotty lorries. The final event to take place was the Alsford Timber Christmas Party which took place on Saturday 17th November. Raffles and auctions took place on the night with some fantastic prizes being won including a signed MichealBuble photo, a bungee jump, tickets to football matches and tickets to see Peter Andre!

The event overall was a real success with everyone enjoying their evening and raising over £2k for Demelza.
