Four months into the year and things are looking awesome! We have a few Fundraisers on the go such as:
3rd Annual Kick-Start event
This is an Enduro MotorCross style bike event that the boys fundraise for and do a phenomal job. In 2009 they raise enough funds to give a school solar powered lighting. In 2010, they raised funds to have a Funpump installed to provide the village with fresh clean dinking water – and in 2011 – the hopes and dreams of sending 3 of our orphan and vulnerable children onto greater oppurtunies in life by setting up Educational Trust Funds for them.
The event is happening on the 14th May 2011 – if you wish to sponsor a rider and help us reach our target – please get in touch!
Next biggie on the list – A Cosy Community
We have started the winter warmer collection and have already recieved many fleece tops, gloves and beanies (woolie hat). So if you are heading this way any time soon, pop a few gloves, scarfs, fleeces, woolie hats, socks and jumpers into your bags and help us to keep our community cosy this winter!
Virgin Unite Staff Connection Trip 2011
Next on the list (told you we hade a many pokies online on the go) – The annual Virgin Unite Staff Connection Trip. Every year 10 lucky Virgin employees from across the world and the Virgin Group get selected to join us for a week of hands on project work! We have an awesome time with plenty of hard graft, laughter, sunburn, sore achy muscles – but best of all is having the oppurtunity to get stuck into a great cause -to help the team reach their target – log on here
