News from our King's Lynn Office

YMCA Sleep Easy
In February one of our partners, Richard Pennington braved the cold to take part in YMCA Sleep Easy. Richard and others spent a night sleeping rough in King’s Lynn to help highlight the issue of youth homelessness and raise vital funds to support the work of our local YMCA.  The money he raised will go directly towards helping young people in our town build a future.

Colossol Cake Sale
On 29 April we held a cake sale in support of Help for Heroes, several of our staff put their baking skills into action and made some yummy treats from a delightful Victoria Sponge to some tasty carrot cake. These were then sold along with tea and coffee to our hungry staff. We also held a raffle for a homemade chocolate cake. In total we raised £110, which is not bad for a day speant eating cake.

On 5th May, an unusually sunny bank holiday Sunday, seven of our staff embarked on the 10k Gear Run in order to raise money for Norfolk Hospice. Our times ranged from 44 minutes to just over an hour. The atmosphere in King’s Lynn was great as usual and pushed our runners to keep going, so thank you to all who came out to cheer. We raised   for the charity and enjoyed all well-deserved drink in the pub afterwards.  

Macmillan Cancer Support
On 30th September Ward Gethin Archer hosted their annual Coffee Morning in support of Macmillan and raised £169 for the charity. We were kept fuelled throughout the day with a variety of treats from chocolate brownies to millionaire short brad, all baked by our multi-talented staff. We also adorned the reception with balloons and buntings and many of our wonderful clients donated after sampling some delicious cakes. We hope to beat the amount raised at our next coffee morning.
