Orwell Housing is paying for a day of care and support from EACH across Suffolk today, having raised a superb £7,131.65.
The company’s 600 members of staff have been busy taking part in various fundraising activities and initiatives over the past year, including their 55 miles for 55 years challenge that saw a group walk from Southwold to Ipswich over two days, camping in a colleague’s garden overnight. The event doubled as a celebration of Orwell Housing’s 55th anniversary.
Other fundraising highlights have included Michelle Jallow doing a skydive and the 12 days of fundraising by staff over Christmas that brought in £2,500.
As well as those efforts, Orwell Housing has taken part in Bag It, Bring It, Boost It, collecting some 110 bags worth an average of £10 each.
Next month, some staff will attend a volunteering day at The Treehouse.
Wendy Evans-Hendrick, Orwell Housing CEO, says: “It made us proud to support EACH with their fundraising efforts as it’s such a worthwhile cause. All the staff got involved and really enjoyed themselves in doing so.”
Orwell Housing manages around 4,000 properties across Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex, providing homes for over 7,500 residents.
