Avery Tucks In For The Care Worker’s Charity!
Avery Healthcare are a major sponsor and supporter of the UK’s Care Workers’ Charity (CWC) and are always looking for innovative ways to raise much-needed funds for this worthy cause in the caring sector. As well as nominating the charity if ever offered any donations, Avery supports the annual CWC summer event day at all its homes and has also provided teams to support the Charity’s activity events, trekking up Snowdon and climbing the Yorkshire Three Peaks.
All very healthy stuff, but now Avery’s Group Support Centre are nibbling their way to fundraising! Enterprising Project Manager in the Estates Department, Rachel Bisiker, decided that she would set up a Tuck Shop at the central office to try and raise more funds by exploiting the staff’s need for snacks during the day. From small beginnings just a few months ago, the Tuck Shop shelves are now stocked with cereals and breakfast bars, soups, noodle and pasta meals, drinks, and of course a tempting array of crisps, chocolates and sweets. Very handy for staff who may have forgotten to bring some lunch in, or whom are working late and need that little something to keep them going.
Profits from the Tuck Shop have just hit £250, and so a cheque will be presented to the CWC (not in person of course, at this time).
Rachel said, “We get a range of food vans visit our business park here so it seemed to me that we would be better off supplying some of this ourselves and generating some good for one of our favoured charities; so ‘Munch For Money’ has really paid off!”.
