Bell & Co Help Smash Charity Target!
Bell & Co would like to thank all who supported us in raising £3,750 for YMCA Derbyshire.
As previously announced on this site, a team of 10 staff, family and friends from Bell & Co braved the elements at the end of February by sleeping rough in aid of the local YMCA. We're all delighted with the results, as are the YMCA who have now put out the following statement:
YMCA Derbyshire has expressed its sincere gratitude to the local businesses which took part in this year’s Sleep Easy sponsored sleep-out event, including Bell & Co whose team of 10 were one of the top fundraisers. This support helped the charity smash all its targets to raise a stunning £44,000. Fundraising Officer Grace Harrison said, “The support of Bell & Co has been fantastic and the money they and others have raised through Sleep Easy will make a vital difference to our ability to provide a safe front door to young and vulnerable homeless people. What’s more, designating us as their Charity of the Year demonstrates Bell & Co’s very real commitment to corporate social responsibility and to the welfare of the most needy members of our community. All of us at YMCA Derbyshire are very grateful.”
