Easter was a great opportunity to act on one of the core values we follow as a company – ‘Care more’ – and we’re pleased to say that Freedom Fibre’s first annual Easter charity raffle raised a fantastic £209 through generous donations from our staff.
Freedom Fibre is dedicated to supporting its employees’ wellbeing, and with many of our people recently becoming certified Mental Health First Aiders, we decided to donate the money to the Jamie Horrocks Trust, a local charity based in our hometown of Irlam, Greater Manchester.
The Jamie Horrocks Trust raises funds for community-based projects that help to reduce the risk of and support those affected by suicide. Jamie was a hugely popular young man and dedicated fire-fighter in Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue who sadly took his life on May 30th 2013 aged 37.
Our lucky raffle winner, Quantity Surveyor David Woodall, received a large gift hamper filled with Easter chocolate and said, “Genuinely never won anything before. I also now massively regret spending £50 yesterday on chocolate for the kids 🤣".
