Can you help us in 2018?

Posted by | Donations, Events | No Comments

There are many ways to support our wee charity but in this post I am asking for help with prizes for our events during 2018

We would so very much appreciate help securing some high value prizes for  3 events we are benefiting charity at.  We provide 4 prizes for each event and in return receive financial donations from guests.  Prizes are often spa treatments, or a hotel stay with dinner and breakfast, or the loan of a car for the weekend with an afternoon tea at a 5 star hotel,  or a case of wine or a hair or beauty hamper.

For our own events this year we only have 2 events – Blingo and the Ball.   Blingo needs lots of raffle prizes with a value around £50 and this year we also need silent auction items as we are holding a silent auction for the first time at Blingo.  At our Ball we only have 4 main auction items but we make them special – we already have two pledged!  If you can donate or pledge something extra special ( a holiday in New York for example) or something unusual (remember Johnny Ca$h Coo? and the stunning Silver Ash Beaker)  we would love to hear from you.

If you are able to donate a voucher or product for any of our events please do get in touch – we have always organised our own events and receive such terrific support from you – fingers crossed you can help again this year.

Email me on Lynne@itsgood2give.co.uk if you can help

Thank you!

NHBC lunch

We were delighted to be the benefitting charity for the NHBC Pride in the Job awards lunch in September. Their guests were very generous with the donations in envelopes and we received over £6000 – money we will use to maintain the Ripple Retreat allowing families to stay at no cost to them.
Thank you to NHBC Scotland for choosing us and to the NHBC events team for looking after us so well.

Scottish Gin and Scottish Beer Awards 2017

Scottish Gin Awards and Scottish Beer Awards

Well, who wouldn’t be chuffed to be part of these awards? We were delighted to be one of the benefitting charities from donations guests made at these dinners. KDMedia are the organisers of the awards and have supported us for many years. This was first year of the gin awards and it was very well attended. At the Beer awards we got extra fortunate as one of the hosts, Hardeep Singh Kholi, donated two dinners – he will cook for two guests in their homes raising a wonderful and much appreciated £3000 for us!

Thanks to Kirsten and her team at KDMedia for such tremendous support and also to our teams of volunteers giving up their time to help at these events.  We need you and appreciate you very much.
