Thomas James fundraise with a raffle
It was with delight that Thomas James Ruddington office team held a raffle to raise funds for Nottinghamshire Hospice at the end of 2014. Branch Manager Jenny Mascari and her team approached local businesses to ask for their support by donating suitable prizes and were thrilled with the enthusiastic response. Ruddington based businesses including Perkins Hardware, the Ruddington Arms, Phoenix Florists, Moulty’s Barbers, Manor Pharmacy, Eleven Hairdressers, Beauty at the Barn all assisted. A superb range of prizes was collected ranging from beauty products and haircuts through flowers, wine and a super bird box for the garden, chocolates and meals out to professional photography appointments and much more.
These contributions were gratefully received by Jenny and the Thomas James Team were then equally as successful in encouraging clients, colleagues and business associates to enter into the spirit of this event by purchasing raffle tickets.
The result was undoubtedly worth the effort with a fabulous £306 being raised by the team. It was of course then pleasing too, to be able to deliver the good news to winners of prizes!
Nottinghamshire Hospice was selected by Thomas James staff to receive funds because of their presence in the heart Ruddington with a popular and friendly shop. “The work that this charity undertakes supports people locally. Their help is invaluable in a fast paced and sometimes seemingly uncaring world, bringing happiness and comfort in difficult times.”
