Putting the fun into fundraising for the Aldingbourne Trust

The Aldingbourne Trust were delighted to accept our final cheque for £311.00 which has brought the total raised by Henry Adams for the chosen charity over the past two years to nearly £20,000.

Since we partnered with the Aldingbourne Trust in spring 2016, our staff have been raising money through numerous activities - ranging from a silly sock day to sponsoring the trust’s golf days and the amazing Screwball Rally which saw a team of three of our senior partners travelling 1700 miles across Europe in a £750 car over just three days. 
 
Gail Chisham, who spearheaded the fundraising at Henry Adams, said, “It’s been fantastic getting to know more about the amazing Aldingbourne Trust and being able to lend them a helping hand on their way to completing the new visitor centre.
 
“I’d encourage anyone to get involved with such a worthwhile local charity, it’s been great fun and even better to have made so many new friends at the trust.”
 
Abigail Rowe from the Aldingbourne Trust added, “On behalf of everyone here we’d like to thank Gail and her colleagues at Henry Adams for the wonderful support they’ve given us over the last two years. Their enthusiasm for fundraising events has been amazing and we’re really grateful for everything they’ve done.
 
“We really do appreciate the support of every single one of our sponsors. They make such a difference to the amount of help we’re able to provide to people with learning disabilities which enables them to reach their potential in our community.”
 
The Aldingbourne Trust celebrates its 40th anniversary this year and is completing a £4m eco-friendly care centre to prove more than 5,250 additional days of support for adults with learning disabilities.
 
The charity is always keen to hear from people who want to make a difference in terms of volunteering and fundraising.
