Fundraising money put to good use

Whilst the act of fundraising is itself a fulfilling experience, it is even more rewarding to hear from a charity that you have raised money for that that money has been put to good use.


Workplace Law’s chosen charity is Exhall Grange Specialist School and Science College in Coventry and in 2009 we raised money for them through two events; the Chariots of Fire relay race in Cambridge and the Cambridge to London cycle ride.


We were overjoyed at receiving a letter recently from the school explaining that the funds we had raised had gone toward a camping trip for ten pupils and their parents, which included a role reversal with the pupils ‘looking after their parents’.


This is what the Exhall Grange Campers had to say:


“At the weekend we went on a camping trip with our parents. We had a really fun few days at Rough Close campsite, sleeping in tents and trying outdoor activities. We had to look after our parents by doing the cooking and washing up. We also got to try some new things such as climbing, archery and tracking. It was all lots of fun and great to be outside with the campfire even in the rain!


“We wanted to write to you to say a very big thank you for raising money for the school and letting us have a go at camping and outdoor activities. It was very kind of you to donate the money. We heard you worked hard to raise the money and we think it is great as we couldn’t have done all of the things without your money. We all loved the weekend.”


We will be raising more money for the school in July when a Workplace Law team completes the London to Cambridge cycle ride. There is still time to join the team or sponsor us if you would like to help. Click here for more details.
