Charity Dress Down Days - Supporting Local Charities

Scott Richards hold a charity dress down day on the last working Friday of each month.  This is sometimes replaced by a different event.  For example, each year in September we hold a coffee and cake morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support and in November we support Children in Need (see separate news items).  We have been holding these charity dress down days since April 2017 - some of the most recent charities we have supported are detailed below.

Scotty's Travels

This is our very own charity, aimed at raising funds to send a local child in need and their family on holiday.  If you are going away, pop into our office and ask for Scotty to take with you!  For every new holiday destination Scotty reaches, we will make a donation into our Scotty’s Holiday Fund.  Read more and see some pictures of his travels here.  We will be raising funds for Scotty's travels during April, June and July.

 

Bring your dog to work day

On Friday 21st June, we supported national Bring Your Dog to Work day (visit their website here for more details).  We dressed down and raised money in support of the local Dogs Trust.  We raised a total of £50.00.

Three Alpine Peaks in Three Days

For May, we supported Paul Bettesworth from Bettesworths Estate Agents in his bid to summit Three Alpine Peaks in Three days - one in each of France, Switzerland & Italy, each over twice the height of Ben Nevis.

Paul is climbing to raise money for Restart Rugby - a charity dedicated to supporting players suffering from serious injury, illness or hardship.  You can link to Paul's fundraising page here
 

Alice Cross Centre

We supported the Alice Cross Centre in Teignmouth for January, February and March 2019 - see the presentation here.  The Alice Cross Centre aims to bring people together to provide friendship, a good lunch and a helping hand.  It has a range of activities and services for everyone to enjoy. We also supported the Alice Cross Centre in December - read the article here.  Further details about the Centre can be found at http://thealicecross.co.uk/

The Sea Cadets

For July, August and October 2018, we supported The Sea Cadets.  Sea Cadets is different from school. There's a lot of learning. But it's done through activities – on the water, on land and in the unit – and their volunteers leading by example.   Further details can be found at https://www.sea-cadets.org/about
