BASEPOINT MATCH FUND ‘BAGS BY THE BEACH’ FUNDRAISER FOR AUTISM WESSEX
Basepoint Bournemouth were very proud to be able to match fund 'Bags By The Beach' for Autism Wessex. The event took place on Thursday 8th October 2015 at Aruba Bar and Restaurant on Bournemouth Pier.
Becky Chalk, Community and Events Fundraiser comments; “£3,400 was raised at the event through ticket sales, the auction, a raffle and nearly new sales. Basepoint’s match funding of the event brings the total amount raised to over £6,800 which will all go towards the continuing provision of our Free Information & Advice service. This allows us to make a real difference to those affected by autism as well as raising vital awareness.”
Steph Harrison, Assistant Centre Manager at Basepoint Bournemouth comments; “We have enjoyed a really successful relationship with Autism Wessex and enjoy being involved with such a worthwhile local charity. We are delighted to work with such conscientious and passionate people and to share in such important fund raising initiatives. We look forward to a continued successful relationship for the benefit of the local community.”
The charity’s next event will be an Autism friendly Christmas Market to be held at the charity’s Portfield School near Hurn on Saturday 21st November from 11-3pm.
