Cheque Presentation to Break – Maids Head Charity 2019
Throughout 2019, Break was the Maids Head's local charity. During the year our staff and guests raised £1,184.06. We invited Danielle Gravestock from Break to receive the cheque and celebrate the fundraising success with our staff.
The money was raised through collection buckets, a Christmas raffle and donations at special events including resident tour guide Paul Dickson's Shardlake's Norwich tours during English Tourism Week and Norfolk Day, and Rob Knee from the Paston Heritage Society who gave talks about the Pastons and the Paston Letters on Norfolk Day and on 22 November. The second talk was on the anniversary of the Maids Head getting it's first official written mention in a Paston letter. A team from the Maids Head – Jonathan Brasnett, Andrew Shorthose and Rose Taylor - also completed the City of Norwich half marathon in aid of Break
Danielle Gravestock, Senior Fundraising Officer, Break said: “Thank you to the Maids Head Hotel and all involved in their wonderful Charity of the Year fundraising, for the generous support – we know how much time and energy it takes to fundraise and hope that knowing that the money raised is going to have a significant impact on local vulnerable children, young people and families will enable all involved to feel incredibly proud of all that has been achieved.”
“£1,184.06 will enable us to provide hope to vulnerable young people and families at a time when it is needed most, allowing us to provide safe, caring home environments with continued support, to ensure that every child and young person has the chance of a brighter tomorrow.”
Our charity for 2020 is Norfolk and Waveney Mind.
