The Elizabeth Foundation is the real belle of the ball on fundraising night
Basepoint business centres in Havant and Waterlooville recently presented The Elizabeth Foundation (www.elizabeth-foundation.org), a national charity which supports infant and pre-school aged children with hearing loss, with a cheque for £5,320 at its annual fundraising ball on Saturday 10th November.
Brigitte Baker, centre manager at Basepoint business centres in Havant and Waterlooville, and Sherry Thompson, assistant manager at Basepoint Havant, were delighted to present the cheque to Shirley Metherell, founder of The Elizabeth Foundation, and Alison Robinson, fundraising and finance manager at The Elizabeth Foundation.
Fundraising activities on the night included a tombola, raffle, and special auction, with a signed bottle of ‘Vinho Espumante Bruto Rose’ from Cliff Richard’s vineyard, a VIP Moet and Mercier Champagne Cellars Tour in France, a one week stay in a Florida villa, and a one week stay in the Algarve, all up for grabs to the highest bidders.
Alison Robinson comments: “We are thrilled that Basepoint Waterlooville and Havant are supporting us again, match-funding our ball auction, tombola and raffle to the generous total of £5,320. This matched funding will enable us to continue to offer our vital early intervention to babies, toddlers, and pre-schoolers at our Hampshire Family Centre."
Brigitte Baker adds: “We had a fantastic night at the ball, and hope our donation is helpful. We look forward to more fundraising activities with The Elizabeth Foundation in future, and also supporting them in the amazing work they do.”
