£10,000 Raised for Age UK Suffolk
Basepoint staff celebrate raising £10,000 for their local charity.
The money raised came from a number of events and activities which both staff and licensees planned and attended, before it was match-funded by Basepoint.
Events included a Springtime Ball and both Ufford Park and Thorpeness Golf Days, as well as the Slip into Slippers and the Big Chin Wag initiatives.
On receiving the cheque, Jo Reeder, head of fundraising and marketing at AGE UK Suffolk, said: “We are enormously grateful to Alison, Leanne and the Basepoint Ipswich licensees for supporting AGE UK Suffolk over the last two years.
“The money raised has and will continue to make a huge difference to many older people in Suffolk, enabling us to continue delivering vital and life changing services and support, and ensuring that every older person in Suffolk has somewhere to turn to.”
Alison Morrissey, Centre Manager added: "It is fantastic for us to be able to help the local community, working with Age UK Suffolk for the past 2 years has been a fantastic experience and we look forward to giving them our continued support."
