Back in November 2018, Steph from Purchase Direct approached us about donating one of our hampers as a prize for a fundraising day they were holding for Pinewood School. Purchase Direct holds a charity day twice a year, nominating worthy causes in their local area. Pinewood School is a special education school for children aged 11 to 16, and the staff at Purchase Direct nominated them for their ‘Back To School’ fundraising day.
We were absolutely delighted to donate one of our hampers, and caught up with Steph recently to see how the fundraiser went.
As part of the fundraising day, the team at Purchase Direct held a number of events, competitions, and a raffle to raise money for this worthy cause. They even had a ‘Sports Day’ where members of staff took part in some sporty events! When we caught up with Steph, we were thrilled to hear that they had raised a whopping £2,473. This donation will go towards purchasing an interactive electronic learning device for the students at Pinewood School.
Hearing this news is a lovely way to start 2019!
