Staff at work wear supplier Alexandra have had a busy year so far raising more than £1,900 to support nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants suffering hardship.
They’ve raised the money by taking part in events such as an Easter Raffle, a Bacon Buttie morning and a cake sale for International Nurses’ Day. A team of 23 staff members also ran the Great Bristol 10k in May giving their fundraising target a real boost.
Wayne Gilvear, Purchasing Manager at Alexandra, ran in the race with his fellow team members,
“We were blessed with blue skies and 16 degrees and to have everyone cheering us along was fantastic! We all crossed the line with a real sense of achievement.”
Victoria Lewis, Fundraising Manager at Cavell Nurses’ Trust, said “We are so impressed with the effort from the team at Alexandra and they should be proud to know that their efforts are resulting in more nursing professionals in crisis being supported than ever before. We received 2,200 calls for help last year, which is a 50% increase in just 3 years.”
“Successful corporate fundraising really brings colleagues together and can raise significant funds to make such a difference to the lives of nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants suffering hardship in the UK.”
