Fund raising fun for Children in Need

Fund raising fun for Children in Need

Northern Energy took part in raising some funds for the Children in Need appeal on 13th November.

We held a number of fun events in the office throughout the day.
  • We all paid a pound to dress down, a good excuse to wear jeans instead of the usual office attire!
  • Christine’s Cryptic Quiz had all the participants scratching their heads over the crossword-style questions.
  • The Amazing Tombola had some truly awful prizes alongside some very generously donated ones. This was by far the most popular event!
  • Nicky’s Fruit Smoothies were freshly prepared in the kitchen using fruit, yoghurt, berries and crushed ice.
  • The Cake Bake Sale brought out the skills of the office bakers, offering up carrot cake, chocolate cake, flapjacks, chocolate brownies and buns.
  • The Embarrassing Photo Competition, where people voted for the most embarrassing photo of their colleagues raised a few laughs and a few eye brows!
  • Our Written auction raised the most money, seeing a brand new leather jacket go for £25, a bottle of gin for £30, a bottle of Baileys for £12 and a giant telescope £40.
In total we were really happy to raise £220 for Children in Need.Northern Energy continues to raise money all year round for different charities including Lollipop in York which is a charity that brings families of children and young people with any degree of hearing loss together through regular free social activities and gatherings. Amongst many others we also raise money for St Michaels Hospice who help patients and their families adjust to the inevitable changes that life-limiting illnesses bring.We were lucky enough to be featured in our local paper, The Harrogate Advertiser handing over a cheque for £13,969.66 which was raised on our Annual Golf Day.
