Ridgeons raises £51,000+ for EACH

A fantastic two years of fundraising by Ridgeons has resulted in a bumper donation of £51,253.78 to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

Staff from the builders merchants have taken part in a sponsored leg wax, head shave and skydive, Christmas jumper and dress-down days, running and cycling challenges, held in-store collections, raffles and more

Some staff also went beyond fundraising by taking part in Bag It, Bring It, Boost It, EACH’s donation drive to boost its shops, and volunteering at EACH events.

Ian Northen, Ridgeons CEO, said: “I just want to say a huge thank you to all our colleagues and customers for helping to support this amazing charity. We’re so proud of the amount we’ve reached and the difference that money will make. We’ve loved every moment fundraising for EACH over the past two years.”

Emily Rose, EACH Corporate Fundraising Assistant, said: “We’re thrilled to have had the support of Ridgeons across East Anglia. They’ve been a fantastic partner to work with and the amazing amount they’ve raised will make such a difference to the families we offer care and support. We’re so grateful to have had such a successful partnership.”
