The Active.com Vintage team fundraises for client event
 
Ana-fundraising1

The Active Network team is devoted to improve the efficiency of clients’ events, grow their participation and sometimes, even get involved themselves.

This time, Ana de Jesus, Izania Downie, Katie Harvey and Sandrine Lagrange, from the London office, joined the Vintage Midnight Walk in aid of St Joseph's Hospice and Richard House Children's Hospice. The event, that took place on the 10th of September, involved a 10 mile walk around the streets of East London starting at midnight, where all participants were dressed up in vintage clothing. The aim of the event was to raise funds for the hospices that work every day to support the elderly (St. Joseph’s) and children with life threatening diseases (Richard’s House).

The girls, with team name “Active.com Vintage Team”, had the goal to raise at least £500. Three sessions of home baked cakes sale in the London office helped them fundraise £191. Adding to further fundraising through friends and family they managed to reach the final result of £511. The Active.com Vintage team is proud to have achieved this result and remains very grateful to their network of friends, family and colleagues.

The Vintage Midnight Walk, other than an original event to raise funds for a good cause, was also a great, fun night out for all those involved and a good opportunity for the participants to learn how to dance the Charleston during the tea and cake break.
Ana commented on the event as “a fabulous night were we had the opportunity to learn more about one of our client’s events, meet new people and discover more about the streets of East London. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and to help fundraise for this great cause”.
