Thanks to the fantastic efforts of our fundraising people, we are delighted to announce that we have raised more than £6,000 for St John Ambulance in under six months.
St John Ambulance is a 140-year-old volunteer-led health and first aid charity, with national presence, reach and scale. In 2020, during the Covid-19 lockdown, the charity’s volunteers proved critical to the pandemic’s efforts, providing 200,000 hours of patient facing care.
At the start of 2021, we chose St John Ambulance as our Charity of the Year for the second year in a row. The Digital Space team had been inspired by St John Ambulance’s remarkable contribution to the Covid-19 pandemic and we wanted to do even more to support their life-saving work.
Fundraising soon got underway for us at Digital Space.
A virtual Easter egg hunt
It wouldn’t be Easter without an egg hunt and delicious chocolate up for grabs. Last month, 10 little eggs were hidden across the pages of our website, and our staff, customers and friends had one mission; find all the eggs to be in with a chance of winning a Hotel Chocolat Egg.
Participants had to donate £10 to St John Ambulance to take part and it was an eggcellent triumph! Our apprentice, Thomas Dowell was crowned ultimate egg hunter, taking home the much-wanted chocolate prize.
Laptop sale extravaganza
Old laptop stock provided us with a perfect excuse to raise even more money St John Ambulance. Staff who wished to refurbish a laptop or just buy a device for their friends or family were given the opportunity to take home one of our older, unused laptops without a hard drive. All they had to do was donate £20 to our fundraising pot. The sale was a brilliant success, with us raising almost £3,000 for St John Ambulance in the process.
Plus, so much more!
From bake offs to bingo, the past few months have been busy with exciting fundraising initiatives and our people have been pulling out all the stop to raise as much money as possible. Over the next few months, we hope to raise even more for St John Ambulance so watch this space!
