SINCE 2008, fundraisers across the region have raised more than £1 million for good causes through the Master Cutler’s Challenge to bring in as much money as possible from £50.
And this year the Advertiser is following the progress of the team from Rotherham manufacturing firm AESSEAL. This is the second in a regular series of updates from them.
Cakes, pub quizzes and World Cup forecasts are just some of the latest money-spinning ideas that AESSEAL has come up with in our Master Cutler’s Challenge to raise funds for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.
There are some fantastic prizes to be snapped up by people supporting our efforts for this year’s very special nominated charity, including tickets to the UK tour of legendary ska group Madness, supported by the Fratellis.
It’s hard to believe that we’re already four months into the challenge and at AESSEAL we are deep in the midst of our fundraising activities to raise as much money as possible for Bluebell Wood, which provides care to children and young adults with life-shortening or life-threatening conditions, as well as invaluable support to their families.
On May 14, employees came together to bake delicious cakes and savoury treats when we hosted a bake sale at our global headquarters.
These were then sold over a couple of days and it’s safe to say everyone had their fair share of the baked goodies!
We’ve also kicked-started our World Cup score predictor game, with some amazing prizes up for grabs.
As well as two guest list passes for the Madness tour in December at a venue of your choice, you could win a custom-made oakwood coffee table worth £360 from Fretwells Urban Living or a £100 power tools voucher donated by Helix Tools.
It’s just £5 to enter — for more information or to register please contact Mike Thorp at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On June 4 we hosted a pub quiz at the Riverside pub in Rotherham to raise money for the challenge.
It was a fantastic evening, which brought together various departments from AESSEAL. Below is a picture of the winning team.
June is a busy month for our fundraising events. Our spirits are high and we’re eager to raise as much money as possible for Bluebell Wood and to make sure everyone that supports us has a great time!
We greatly appreciate any help which you can give to support the extraordinary of Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice.
