Throughout December, Quality Essential Distribution have taken part in multiple fundraising activities. The whole point of this was to raise money for RockFM 500 Faces Charity in Lancashire. Due to QED being a security distributor based in Preston, we wanted to contribute towards making a real difference to the lives of local children and young people. So, everything raised in our area, remains in our area. With a focus on alleviating poverty, supporting disability and improving quality of life.
The festivities included Festive Hot Chocolate making, a Christmas Raffle and Dress-up Day; as well as a homemade cake selection (courtesy of Jo Capstick). It is safe to say that Jo made some absolutely delicious snowflake mince pies and dainty Christmas cupcakes!
Furthermore, the festive hot chocolates raised £13 alone just by charging people 50p. This included squirty cream and mini marshmallows too! Jo’s Cake Sale raised £24!!! Thank you, Jo, for the festive treats that you baked for us at home. Additionally, the Christmas Raffle raised a whopping £47! As soon as biscuits, chocolate and wine were mentioned as possible prizes, everyone wanted the chance to win! Also, when hosting the Christmas Raffle, we dressed up in our best and most festive attire to raise money for RockFM 500 Faces Charity whilst getting into the Christmas spirit.
To conclude, the QED team raised a fantastic £144! Thank you everyone for participating and helping towards the lives of local children and young people. We can exit 2017 knowing that our RockFM face turned GREEN! We have had a fantastic year at QED. With events such as our 20th Anniversary, a new partnership with UTC Fire & Security, and the launch of our new EV – Energy Vault at Energy 2017. Furthermore, we have contributed towards additional charities such as Children in Need and Macmillan Cancer Support with days of fun and laughter… and we plan to continue the fundraising throughout the years.
2017 has been a great year for Quality Essential Distribution. A big thank you to everyone who has worked with us this year. Have a very Merry Christmas and an excellent New Year. We cannot wait to see what 2018 brings!
