Our year sponsoring the charity Ambitious about Autism
Wednesday, February 5, 2020
2019 was a great year for Thornbury Community Services. Throughout the year, we participated in a range of activities to raise money and awareness for our chosen charity, Ambitious About Autism; the national charity for children and young people.
We took part in the Thames Path event which challenged participants to walk, jog or run the route around the Putney Bridge, past Hampton Court, to the historic Runnymede of Magna Carta.
We would like to say a big thank you to those companies who kindly donated items which were added to our charity raffle, in aid of Ambitious about Autism.
Commercial Risk Solutions kindly donated money, which allowed us to purchase a NOW TV Fire Stick and an Amazon Voucher. Puzzlair in Bristol donated a free weekday game for a team of 2-5 players. These items were added to our Ambitious about Autism raffle, which took place on the 26th of November 2019. We raised over £150 in our charity raffle last year, thank you again to those who donated and took part. Across our different offices, we also ran several bake sales, buffets and a bingo event over the year.
We are pleased are to announce our final total raised was £9896.93. All the proceeds we raised were given to Ambitious about Autism, so they can continue to deliver the high-level of support and advice to the community.
With 2019 being so successful, we wanted to support another fantastic charity this year. For 2020, we are proud to announce our sponsored charity, is Mind, the mental health awareness charity.
Keep an eye on our social media and websites for more details about Mind, and how we are going to raise money to show our support.
