Go Gold for Research
Recent fundraising at our Trafford Park Headquarters has helped two wonderful local charities.
Throughout the whole of September the P J Livesey offices turned ‘Gold’ in support of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
With a gold-themed cake baking contest, a golden egg raffle and a guess the name of a giant gold bear competion, our generous staff and visitors raised a magnificent £2,180.50 in aid of Friends of Rosie.
The donation will help the Manchester based charity to fund pioneering research looking for improvements in the treatment and diagnosis of children with cancer.
Dorothea Livesey, of P J Livesey, said “We are delighted to support this very worthwhile local charity and help raise awareness for childhood cancer research. My thanks go to everyone who helped to organise events and donated during the month, helping us to reach such a fantastic fundraising total.”
Felicity Goodey CBE DL, Friends of Rosie Chair of Trustees, visited the office to pick up the cheque and said “Our huge thanks goes to the team at P J Livesey for their amazing fundraising achievements during September. Support like this helps us pump more funding into these vital areas of research, making a difference for children with cancer in the future.”
Giant gold bears were also in residence at our developments at Green Walk in West Didsbury and The Historic Quarter at Alderley Park with viewers and purchasers also invited to guess the giant toy’s name.
Sheila King, one of our new residents at The Historic Quarter guessed correctly but generously decided to donate the cuddly bear to Francis House Hospice in Didsbury.
A whole hearted thank you to everyone who got involved and we send our very best wishes to the charities.
