Local charity work and fundraising in the Basingstoke area by Asset Advantage.
Asset Advantage have run their own Bake Off style fundraiser to raise money for their Charity of the year: Naomi House & Jacksplace.
The fundraiser ran over 8 weeks with every department in the company taking part, leaving 4 finalists, 1 winner & a £300 total raised for the hospice. Thank you to all of our staff who donated their time and money to participate in our first fundraising event for Naomi House & Jacksplace, a brilliant local charity who provide hospice care for children and young adults.
Asset Advantage supporting St Michael’s Hospice
In January 2015, we decided that we would like to make a bigger contribution to the community by supporting a local charity. In previous years, we had held ‘Christmas Jumper Days’ and similar to support various UK charities. We had also raised some money for St Michael’s Hospice in 2014 through the efforts of ‘Asset Advantage Runners’, our race team in the Basingstoke Half Marathon; with the support of friends, family, contacts and colleagues we raised over £2,000.
This year we have focussed all of our fundraising activities on St Michael’s Hospice and have grown to have a strong relationship with Jackie Ridge, their Corporate & Legacy Manager.
From a ‘Name the Royal Baby’ and ‘Who will win the Rugby World Cup’ competition to another year of participating in the Basingstoke Half Marathon, our whole team have taken the time and energy to fundraise for this great charity.
“We were thrilled that the staff at Asset Advantage choose St. Michael’s Hospice as their charity of the year. To have the support of such a great organisation in Basingstoke makes a huge difference to us here at St. Michaels. Without the support of the local business community we simply could not continue to offer our services to patients and families in the area at a time when they are most needed. We are extremely grateful to everyone at Asset Advantage for their show of support.” Jackie Ridge, Corporate and Legacy Manager
