Bulley Davey has raised £5,900 for charities over the last twelve months – including £2,830 for their charity of the year, Breast Cancer Care.
In raising the money for their charity of the year, the Bulley Davey team – which has offices in eight locations across the Eastern region – tackled a 10k fun run, held their annual quiz and dress down days; and one member of the team even sold eggs from their chickens. Altogether they raised £2,830 for the breast cancer charity.
Different offices undertook their own fundraising too – the Oundle team took part in the Peterborough Fun Colour Rush in remembrance of Anna Webb, raising £750 for Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall.
The company, which offers proactive and forward-thinking advice to individuals and businesses on everything from payroll to cloud accounting and wealth management, also did its bit for Macmillan Coffee Morning. Teams from across the firm took part in baking cakes but most notably was the Wisbech team’s pop-up coffee shop which raised £1,400 across the day.
Speaking about the fundraising, Director Mitchell Burden, said: “We’re so happy to be rounding off another year of fundraising with such an amazing total. I want to firstly say thank you to the Bulley Davey team for their efforts – whether it was getting their running shoes on, or rustling up some incredible cakes, they went the extra mile time and again.
“At Bulley Davey we believe in giving back and doing our bit for charity – Breast Cancer Care does vital work supporting people who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. At a time when things can be really difficult, their nurses and volunteers are there to help provide information and support. The same applies to the likes of Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall and Macmillan Cancer Support – it’s been a great year of fundraising and we’re looking forward to the year ahead.”
Emily Beahan, Community Fundraiser at Breast Cancer Care says, “We are so grateful to Bulley Davey for their hard work and efforts raising vital funds for Breast Cancer Care. The money raised will help Breast Cancer Care to continue to provide free services including; support over the phone with a nurse or someone who’s been there, welcoming online forums, reliable information and local group support, as well as vital breast cancer research. An estimated 600,000 people are alive in the UK after a diagnosis of breast cancer, so there has never been a more urgent need to support the charity.”
