This week we thought we could share some of the charity events the Bridge team has been getting up to over the last couple of months. Supporting different charities and giving back to the community is something the team here at Bridge Contract Interiors takes very seriously. Having an event at work is a great way to bring the team together whilst supporting a good cause.
Coffee Morning for Macmillan Cancer Support
We held a Coffee Morning for Macmillan Cancer Support on the 26th of September. The Macmillan charity is one of the largest charitable organizations in Britain and works tirelessly to provide support and physical, financial and emotional care to those with cancer and their loved ones.
The cake sale we held was very successful with the team here bringing their baking skills to the fore to make some amazing looking (and tasting) creations. We raised just over £60 from the small cake sale and sent that off to the charity.
Wear It Pink Day for Breast Cancer Now
We have also just had a Wear It Pink Day on October 18th. This was held for the Breast Cancer Now Charity. This is the largest breast cancer charity and donations given towards it are put into ensuring that the world-class research taking place in the Breast Cancer Now labs and the support they provide to those who desperately need it, has the funding to continue. They want to create a future where everyone who develops breast cancer lives and is supported well. Pink was well worn throughout the Bridge office, not only clothes but cupcakes also made an appearance adorned with pink icing.
Upcoming Charity Events
This month we are wholeheartedly joining in with Movember. Movember is a charity specifically to support men’s health, from cancer to mental health and suicide prevention. All funds raised by supporters during this month go towards supporting innovative world-class men’s health projects in the key focus areas of cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. People can get involved by choosing to grow a mustache, moving 60km over the month of November or hosting an event, all being sponsored by friends and relations and therefore collating money for the Movember charity. At Bridge, the team has chosen to move the 60km and are consciously thinking about moving more in this chilly month to ensure they hit the target for the month.
We will be sure to keep you updated as to our efforts in the office this Movember, on our social channels. In the meantime, we’re already thinking of charities that we can hold events for and give our support too in the new year. So, keep an eye on what we’re up to as we’re sure 2020 will only be a bigger and better year for charity supporting here at Bridge!
