Last weekend Simply Waste Solutions held a Family Fun Day in support of Shooting Star Chase, a leading children’s hospice charity caring for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families.
[The fun day was] to do something nice for all our staff and their families, get them all together and have some fun.Alex Watson PA to the CEO
The sun was shining and there was plenty there to keep everyone entertained including donkey rides, inflatable bungee run, Captain Fantastic – children’s entertainer and BBQ food.
To raise money for Shooting Star Chase Alex organised raffle and tombola prizes as well as having her hair shaved live on the day, her hair will be donated to an organisation that makes wigs for children. Alex’s hair shaving raised £2,650 while the raffle, tombola, guess the square and lucky dip raised a further £1,125. Making the total a whopping £3,775 for charity.
We are grateful to all our employees and their families for coming and making such a memorable day, everyone who donated prizes and of course everyone who gave money towards this fantastic charity.
