Last year NC Insurance selected Bright Red to be their Charity of the Year. For 12 months they have worked tirelessly to fundraise for us, coming up with many creative ideas along the way.
The team raised an incredible £2,957.50 through various events. They also nominated Bright Red for an Aviva Community Fund Award. The nomination was successful and we received an additional £2,000 towards the cost of the isolation room renovation.
When we asked if we could share their story, the creativity kept coming. Below is a poem about their year of fundraising.
We are very grateful for all the team have done, the funds they have raised will go a long way in our fight against blood cancer.
NC Insurance & Bright Red
“When it comes to a good cause NC Insurance will help if we can
Bright Red’s such a worthy charity; we had to come up with a plan.
Dressing Down’s a thing we love and it’s a small fee to take part,
All cash in the Bright Red pot so this is where we start.
We’ve gambled on the National and had a baby sweep,
Then raffled all sorts items that people love to keep.
A domino card on a Friday will help raise more cash,
Keep adding to the total and we’re getting quite a stash.
Who loves Feast on Friday when your lunch is cooked for you?
Just turn up in the kitchen, heat up, that’s all you have to do.
Move over Mary Berry our baked goods would get first prize,
Set the table in the morning they’ll disappear before your eyes.
We’ve had Movember and Decembeard for the men to join in,
Then off came that winter hair to show their clean shaved skin.
A mention for the sweetie tree’s a luxury from Sue we adore,
Lindor, Ferror and Mini Crème Egg, kept us wanting more.
So from NC Insurance please accept the money we have raised,
For all the good work that Bright Red does, we are full of praise.”
