The last week was very exciting – with three prizes won at The Letting People!
The week started on a high note with Nick Holmes www.grumpychicken.co.uk/ setting up a professional photo shoot at the new offices in Regent Street, Leamington Spa. The superb new photos of all the team will soon appear in all the new publicity and promotional items – so watch this space!
Nick’s time was bid for and won by The Letting People at a fundraising auction of promises for The Willows Project www.thewillowsproject.org.uk/ which recently raised over £7,000 at the Radford Semele Community Hall. Caroline Kempster, Marketing Director attended the auction and auctioned a promise of a training session on Twitter!
The Willows Project provides horticultural, agricultural and nature-based day activities on a working organic farm a few miles from Leamington Spa. They work with a range of excluded groups and individuals, including people with mental health problems, learning disabilities, long-term illnesses, addiction recovery and disaffected young people. Through practical, land-based activity sessions they successfully help people to develop new skills, build confidence and connect with nature.
Caroline and Anthony Kempster also attended Jo Cameron’s Achievers Academy for Women (AAW) awards evening which was raising funds for The Philippine Community Fund (PFC) www.p-c-f.org/ and raised over £500 for this incredible charity aiming to end child labour. PCF’s mission is to improve the quality of life for impoverished Filipino communities, to bring stability and realisable potential through sustainable education, nutrition, health and community advocacy programmes, as well as livelihood training, regardless of religion, race or political boundaries.
Caroline was delighted to win a prize in the PCF fundraising draw of a gift voucher of golf lessons with PGA Professional Julian Mellor at the Julian Mellor Golf School in Warwick www.julianmellorgolfschool.co.uk … so watch out on the fairways of Warwick!
