Management students raise £ 7,800
Manorlands Hospice fund collection by management students
A student of management studies has recently collected more than £ 7,800 for Oxenhope Sure Ryder of Manor lands Hospice. A student of event management at the Craven college of Skipton, Polly Roberts organized a fund raising ball as her last project for the foundation degree. Moreover, being the administrator of the Fisher Medical center at Skipton she made a decision to donate all the proceeds to the local Hospice.
The ball for the fund raiser was organized at the local Coniston Hotel Country Estate and spa and was attended by Polly’s friends, family and colleagues.
The fund raiser began with a hearty reception with drinks and was followed by a sale of fresh roses that followed a three course dinner, raffle and then an auction. To sum up the evening there was live entertainment for the guests.
Statements made by the guests who attended the gala event and helped Polly raise the money were of great satisfaction to have been a part of something that special. Poll stated that hosting such a successful event to raise money for a charity that well deserves felt great. She also revealed that the total amount raised was beyond her expectations she expresses her gratitude to those who attended and the local businesses that gave out the raffles and auctioned prizes.
Two local businesses were especially mentioned by Polly for extending that extra pair of helping hands – based in Gargrave, one is The Masons Arms and MA Shaw Building and Roofing. The costs of the band were paid for by the former, Masons Arms and MA Shaws donated towards the decorations for the venue. The Barclays of Skipton also attended the event and match-funded the proceeds that were raised at the event.
The fund raiser for Hospice Karen Jones, stated that the organization is very thankful to Polly for choosing their organization to donate the proceeds of the event, Sue Ryder Manorlands hospice would be really helpful for them to continue with services. They also extended their gratitude to all who have helped Polly to host such a successful event and to the main host who had worked so hard to generate this huge amount for such a great cause.
The organization Manorlands at their hospice helps cater to patients of the community who are living with incurable illnesses with free medical services.
Though the services at hospice are free but, in order to keep the doors of the organization open they require £ 8000 in a day. A small part of all these costs are covered by the statutory funds.
