This month marks our twentieth year in business and we marked the occasion with a celebration event for our staff, raising money for our charity for this year, Age UK Sunderland.

Companies from across the UK donated prizes for a raffle and more than £1,600 has now been raised this year for Age UK Sunderland who support older people throughout our city, helping to improve their quality of life and maintain independence.

More than 80 people attended the event with raffle prizes ranging from an Amazon tablet to a Fitbit, New Zealand Rugby shirts, (sponsored by AIG) and Liverpool Training wear, (sponsored by AXA).

As well as the raffle there was an awards ceremony for our staff with the following accolades handed out on the evening:

  • Manager’s Choice: Anthony Webster
  • Top Performer: Claire Manning
  • Rising Star: Nyomi Conway
  • People’s Choice: Claire Manning
  • Customer’s Choice: Ben Willis

Dale Robinson, marketing manager, said “the celebration event was a fantastic way to mark our 20th anniversary and recognise the hard work and dedication of our staff. We’re delighted to raise money for Age UK Sunderland and we hope we can get fundraising up to around £3,000 by the end of March with future events we have planned”.

Huge thanks to the following companies for supporting the event and helping us raise money for Age UK Sunderland.
