On Friday 17th May, Site Equip hosted a race night to raise charity for our charity of the year, St Michael’s Hospice, and together managed to raise over £2,000!
After weeks of planning, gathering raffle prizes from our very generous donors & cooking enough food to feed a village, we are over the moon to announce that we have raised over £2,000 for St Michael’s Hospice at our race night!
The night was filled with exciting horse races (and a dog race!), games, plenty of food & drinks and a raffle with some amazing prizes! It was great to see so many smiling faces and people getting into the spirit by cheering on their horses during the races and participating in the games!
We selected St Michael’s Hospice as our charity of the year 2019 as we believe that the hospice is extremely crucial and beneficial with the care that they provide to their patients. The Hospice enables people with a life limiting illness, alongside their families and carers, to attain the highest possible quality of life by providing a choice of specialist care and support. They provide care for patients with an illness where a cure may not possible. The £2000 that we have raised will go towards the cost of drugs and oxygen, patient home visits, in-patient care and much, much more.
Firstly, we’d like to thank everyone who attended the evening and participated in the betting, or purchased a raffle ticket, food or drink from us. Without them, we would not have raised as much money as we have, so thank you to everyone who got involved!
We’d like to thank Jackie, Nicola & Daisy at St Michael’s Hospice Basingstoke for letting us use their Wellbeing room to host the evening, and for offering us support with their fundraising team who helped assist us and ensuring that the night ran smoothly from set up to finish!
We’d also like to give a big thank you to all of our donors to our raffle, we managed to get some incredible prizes so we cannot thank them enough for their generosity. Our prizes ranged from festival tickets to champagne, supermarket vouchers to afternoon tea for 4, there was something for everyone!
And finally, we’d like to say a huge thank you to all of our sponsors who without their generosity, we wouldn’t have been able to raise nearly the amount that we did!
