Society Supports Charity Treasure Hunt
The Beverley Building Society have continued their support for the Beverley Community Lift, which hosted a Hallowe’en treasure hunt around Beverley, in partnership with Yorkshire Cancer Research.
The Society has supported the Beverley Community Lift for a number of years, and has had the opportunity to get involved with the Community Lift’s most recent fundraising activities. In partnership with Yorkshire Cancer Research, a ‘spooktacular’ treasure hunt to coincide with Hallowe’en has been created, around Beverley Town Centre. The Society was chosen to be one of the local businesses that hosts a clue for the charity treasure hunt.
To show full support of the cause, Beverley Building Society donated £100 to the fundraising campaign as well as displaying the clue, and even got a visit from the dressed-up fundraisers.
CEO of the Society, Peter Myers said: “At the Society we take a lot of pride in supporting the local community, as we have been a member of it for 150 years. We are enthusiastic supporters of Beverley Community Lift, and we were really excited to hear about their fundraising activity in partnership with Yorkshire Cancer Research, both fantastic local causes.”
Zoe Fisher, Marketing Manager at the Society said: “The Beverley Community Lift and Yorkshire Cancer Research teams have really put the ‘fun’ into fundraising with their Halloween treasure hunt. It’s really nice that we could be part of it and we hope more people get involved and donate!”
The activity raised a total of £578, made up from business sponsorship, street collection, and the sale of entry forms for the Treasure Hunt. The proceeds will be divided equally between Beverley Community Lift and Yorkshire Cancer Research.
Marie-Louise Robinson, Marketing Assistant at Beverley Community Lift said “The families taking part in the Hallowe’en Treasure Hunt gave us very positive feedback, and said how much they enjoyed taking part during the October half-term”.
“We would like to say a big thank you once again to Beverley Building Society for supporting this event, which helped raise awareness of the two local charities, and brought in some much-needed funds”.
