‘Wear Red Day’ is held every February and organised by Yorkshire based charity – the Children’s Heart Surgery Fund, to raise awareness of congenital heart disease. For the 2nd year running, Gough and Kelly decided to wear red to raise both funds and awareness for the charity’s amazing work.
The Children’s Heart Surgery Fund, based at the Leeds General Infirmary, provides equipment, support and events for children with heart conditions and their families. Our Sales Administrator, Catherine, holds this charity “very close to her heart” as her son Archie has a complex heart condition and has been supported on his journey so far.
On our ‘Wear Red Day’, lunch was kindly provided by Daniels Café, Quicksnack Cafe, Bramley, with pizzas donated by one of our suppliers, Peter at the Lampshop Online.
Our raffle was boosted by excellent prizes, generously donated by Towngate PLC, Rushbond PLC and Pace Telecom who made a cash donation, on our behalf.
Through our Gough and Kelly staff and supporters we raised a grand total of £447.70, including £202.70 from our Leeds office, £45 from our York team who wore dapper red ties, to really “spread the red” throughout Yorkshire and the generous donation from Pace Telecom. We wish to thank everyone who contributed on the day and who helped raise awareness for this worthwhile cause.Return to the News page
