Whiting & Partners raises £500 for AgeUK Suffolk

20th December 2018

Whiting & Partners Bury St Edmunds and Mildenhall offices charity of the year for 2018 was AgeUK Suffolk and staff and clients have helped to raise £500 for the charity with a range of different events throughout the year.

Staff took part in a number of big campaigns with staff raising £85.00 parading around the office in various novelty slippers for the ‘Slip into Slippers’ campaign.  The team also made sweet and savoury bakes for a whole week to promote AgeUK Suffolk’s ‘Big Chinwag’ campaign raising awareness of the lonely and vulnerable.

The biggest success of the year was the hamper giveaway – raising over £200! Items included locally sourced food, alcohol and treats.

The staff also enjoyed other smaller fundraising events including lunchtime bacon rolls and a tuck-shop in the staff canteen.

The Charity Committee (pictured with Jenny Day, Fundraising Officer for Age UK Suffolk) were delighted to present a cheque for £500 for the year’s fundraising and look forward to supporting the charity further in the future.
