K3 Capital Group recently organised a fundraiser in aid of two very deserving charities, Macmillan Cancer Support and The Christie.
The fundraiser, which involved a ‘dress down day’, a coffee morning, a ‘bake off’ competition and a raffle for staff at K3, raised £2,630.35 for the chosen charities. This value was kindly doubled by the company, taking the overall total to a staggering £5,260.70.
Over £1,300 worth of prizes were donated to the raffle by local businesses. The top prizes included a £295 Porsche Driving Experience at Silverstone, a £150 voucher for the Yard & Coop restaurant in Manchester, and a meal and overnight stay at the Strawbury Duck pub and restaurant in Turton, worth £130.
The raffle was drawn in the evening at Social Mess, a workplace canteen located in close proximity to K3’s head office in Springfield Court business park, Bolton. Employees from K3 and other companies operating at the business park were invited to the evening event, where live entertainment and refreshments were provided throughout.
Representatives from Macmillan and The Christie visited K3’s head office for a cheque presentation, in which £2,630.35 was donated to each charity.
Over the past year, Macmillan has opened three Information and Support offices across Bolton, which offer support and help to those who have recently been diagnosed with cancer, are undergoing treatment or have been affected by cancer. The money raised by K3 will help to run one of these centres for over two weeks.
K3 Capital Group would like to thank all those who donated raffle prizes or contributed in any way to our fundraising efforts for two incredibly worthy causes.
