Class People raises money for its charity fund for Christmas
Class People has embraced the festive spirit of giving this year. Throughout December Class People has been running its Christmas raffle competition whilst also collecting donations from every supply booking made.
The raffle competition worked by bringing together bookings throughout the company’s offices including Bristol, Worcestershire, Exeter, Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire.
For every booking made in the period the schools would receive a ticket in the hat and increase chance of winning. The prize for the winning ticket was £250 to be spent on school supplies. On 16th December, the draw was made and the winning ticket was picked; Rowanfield Infant school were the winners.
Anna Ferchow, school business manager at Rowanfield Infant School, said, “We will spend the money on books for our brand new library launching in February 2017. Once again, thank you! We are so happy whoop whoop!”
For every booking made during the competition, 50p was added to the company’s charity fund. Class People were able to raise around £150. The money was used for a supermarket dash around the local Morrison’s supermarket in Up Hatherley, Cheltenham, who were more than happy to host due their own commitments to the local community. The food collected was donated to County Community Projects “Hamper Scamper” in the Cheltenham Regents Arcade. The old British Home Store has been turned into a Santa’s grotto-like warehouse full of gifts and food ready to be handed out to the less fortunate.
Class People are hoping their food donation will help fill those less fortunate with joy around this festive period.
