Festive Friday Raises Thousands for Charity

December 17, 2021

Festive Friday

Last week’s Festive Friday is estimated to have raised more than £20,000 for charity.

On Friday 10th December, colleagues across the Blakemore group dug out their Christmas jumpers and took part in a day of Christmas-themed activities to raise money for charity and spread festive cheer in the workplace.

Blakemore Retail colleagues are estimated to have raised circa £20,000 for the NSPCC, while colleagues across the rest of the business raised £405 for the Samaritans.

Colleagues were invited to take part in an AFB Christmas Quiz, with each team’s quiz winner being entered into a prize draw for a chance to win a £40 voucher.

The winner of the voucher is John Cushion from Blakemore Retail’s Blakeney store. Adam Bull from Chilled and Alison Houghton from Accounts Receivable were both runners up and will receive a hamper.

Thank you to everyone who took part in the event and everyone who submitted photos of their Christmas jumpers or quiz.

Here are just a few of the photos received:
