Basepoint Bournemouth presents cheque to Autism Wessex for over £4,600
Basepoint Bournemouth recently presented a cheque for £4618.87 to Autism Wessex from money raised at a series of charity events including a designer handbag auction and a quiz night.
Basepoint Bournemouth has selected Autism Wessex as their chosen charity for the upcoming year, agreeing to match any money raised up to a value of £10,000 over the course of one year. The regionally based charity provides high quality specialist services for people affected by autism and associated difficulties across the counties of Dorset, Somerset, Hampshire and Wiltshire.
Gemma Saunders of Autism Wessex, comments: “We are really proud of our relationship with Basepoint and consider ourselves fortunate to have their much valued support. Over the years, their match funding scheme has raised tens of thousands of pounds for Autism Wessex and we are delighted to be able to report their most recent match funding of £10,000.”
The recent money donated by Basepoint was raised over the last six months with the particularly popular designer handbag auction contributing £4411.00. For the event, ladies were encouraged to donate their ‘nearly new’ handbags and accessories to be auctioned, with all the proceeds going to the charity. The event was supported by The Daily Echo and Heart FM. In addition, an autumn quiz night raised a further £598.71, taking the annual total matched and donated by Basepoint to £10,000.00.
Karl Fuller, Centre Manager at Basepoint Bournemouth, adds: “As a result of our commitment to the charity, we will continue to hold fundraising events for Autism Wessex throughout the next financial year and are delighted that our efforts are helping to improve people’s everyday lives.”
