We’re pleased to announce that we raised more than £6,000 in one weekend for Big C, thanks to our employees’ efforts and an ongoing relationship with the Norfolk Province of Freemasons.
On Friday 23rd September a cheque for £1,625 was presented to Big C following a fundraising initiative by the Norfolk Province of Freemasons, which saw their members pay to park at our head office during Norwich City FC home games.
The idea was spearheaded by Robert Price MBE on behalf of the Freemasons, who has been managing this fundraising scheme for more than six years.
“The relationship began in 2010, when The Grand Lodge of England granted us the opportunity to raise funds for our chosen charities,” Robert explains. “A chance conversation revealed that Alan was open to using the car park on match days to raise money and it went from there.
“This season our beneficiary is Alan Boswell’s Charity of the Year, Big C. We’re thrilled to make a donation to a local cause and would like to thank Alan Boswell Group for its generosity.”
The Big C Director of Income Generation and Communications, Clive Evans adds: “We’re grateful to Alan Boswell Group and the Freemasons for their support. Working with other organisations is a great way to maximise everyone’s efforts and drive extra interest, ensuring Big C can continue to provide support in the future as well as today.”
Alan Boswell Group Marketing Manager Lee Boswell further comments: “The generous donation from the Freemasons was received at the beginning of a bumper weekend of fundraising activity and we’re delighted to have an ongoing relationship with the organisation.
“Every member of staff at Alan Boswell Group has been challenged to raise £100 for charity this year, and over the course of the weekend our employees raised a further £6,000 by taking part in the Bullards Tour de Norfolk bike ride and huge charity raffle. We’re grateful to our relationships with local organisations – and everyone that’s helped us to maximise our efforts.”
