Over the last 3 months, the staff members at our Torquay office, which is located at the top of the town centre, have been raising money for the Torbay Holiday Helpers Network (THHN). In December, they introduced an office ‘tuck box’ which contained a variety of sweets and chocolates which the staff could then purchase, with the proceeds going to THHN. It seems as if the staff have had quite the appetite as they have managed to raise a whopping £120 for THHN in just 3 months.
The Torbay Holiday Helpers Network are a local charity who give memory making holidays to families with serious illnesses and bereavement. The charity is supported by well over 100 local businesses who help the charity by offering services such as free accommodation and free entry. Families who stay in self-catering accommodation are supplied with a good selection of food hampers that are donated from local businesses.
As the charity puts it – “What THHN does is not going to change any situation or cure any illnesses but what it does do is give families something positive to focus on, acts as a good distraction from hospital appointments and situations families are faced with, but most of all it gives families quality time together to build those all important memories that they will treasure forever.”
If you would like to read more about the charity or get in contact with them to offer any services, then you can find them on the link below:
The Torquay Office are going to continue using the tuck box to raise funds and the next charity they are going to be collecting for is Torbay Hospital League of Friends. So, we are advising the Torquay staff to please keep eating!
