Guralp employees raise more than £1,000 for childrens charities in one week

17 November 2015

Children-in-NeedIn their first year of taking part, Güralp employees have succeeded in raising more than £1000 in aid of Children in Need, a UK based charity that aims to change the lives of disabled children and young people in the UK.

Fundraising activities included a range of fun and amusing antics so that everyone could get involved. Fancy dress was the order of the day, in return for donations to the

cause. To boost the pot, some mad volunteers agreed to be locked in the stocks to face a barrage of water soaked sponges  in return for sponsorship, it may come as no surprise that Neil Watkiss took the prize for the longest time in the stocks. Other activities included cake baking, face painting and a dry cracker eating competition.

Preparations and ideas for 2016 are already under way. Well done team Güralp!
