ARM charity Christmas cards, raising over £4000 in Q1, and more!

Well what a first quarter it was for ARM’s charity fundraising, between September and November we raised over £4000, which was a great effort from everyone at ARM for supporting Naomi House Children’s Hospice. We’ve raised money through activities including; charity raffles, a charity bake sale, a dress down day, and a half marathon. Moving in to our quarter two, we have kicked it off with selling charity Christmas cards.

According to Talking Retail an estimated £259million of Christmas Cards will be sold this year, and we at ARM wanted to get in on the action to help support the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, Naomi House, and the Royal British Legion. Our small stall took over £100 on its first lunchtime of trading on Thursday at the Langstone Technology Park Canteen, and this does not include the many donations passers by added to the pot. Our stall will be back again next week when we hope to sell the rest of our card stock, and bring in our share of the £259million for our charities.

 

Throughout the next three months we have some exciting activities planned to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, including our Active January, a charity quiz, more charity raffles, and another charity bake sale. We are hoping to raise even more in quarter two then we in quarter one, and everyone can get involved from ARM staff, through to our clients and candidates.
