Every year the team at Shopp HQ like to raise money for causes close to our hearts, whether this is through the annual Manchester 10k or a simple bake off. However this year we decided we needed to really push ourselves so 10 members of the team alongside a few of our clients donned water proofs and woolly hats to climb Snowdon on Wednesday 28th September 2016.On what was probably the wettest day any of the team had seen in a while, we set off along the Pyg track and after rock climbing through pools and dealing with water damaged phones and sandwiches, we finally made it to the summit.
This time we decided to fundraise for the Alzheimer’s Society and Ty Gobaith (Hope House) Children’s Charity. The money we have raised will go towards research for Alzheimer’s and Dementia and to help the people suffering and their families. Ty Gobaith (Hope House) is a children’s hospice that provides care and support to life limited children and young people and the money we have raised will help this charity to help the children, young people and their families.
We have already raised a total of £3800 which Shoppertainment will match and the donations are still coming in. We would like take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support and generous donations that really will make a difference. We will keep you updated with the final sum.
We’re now thinking of what we can do next year…suggestions (and volunteers) welcome!
