Abellio Greater Anglia’s Finance Team Gives EACH a Helping Hand

Tuesday, 17 December 2013

Abellio Greater Anglia’s finance team has given East Anglia’s Children’s hospices (EACH) a helping hand by making a donation of over £2,300.

The finance team has worked hard throughout the year, organising a series of activities to help fundraise for EACH.  The team took part in a wide variety of activities including; sponsored ‘dress down’ days, a raffle, an auction of football tickets, a bingo night, a ‘guess the number of sweets in the jar’ competition and also sold Hot Cross Buns to colleagues at Easter.

The grand total raised was £2,309.47. Melissa Collett, EACH fundraiser, recently visited Abellio Greater Anglia’s Colchester-based finance team to accept the donation.

Crystal Wright Abellio Greater Anglia’s Financial Controller said: “Together the Greater Anglia Finance team has worked hard over the last year fundraising for EACH. It is a charity which is close to our hearts and does a great deal to help our local community.”

EACH is a children's hospice charity providing care and support to life-threatened children and their families across Suffolk, Norfolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire.

Melissa Collett, EACH fundraiser, said: “We’d like to thank everyone at Abellio Greater Anglia for their generous support. At EACH we rely upon voluntary donations for the majority of our income, so this donation is very welcome. The funds will help us to provide care and support to life-threatened children and their families across the region.”
