To celebrate raising an amazing £10k for Holding On Letting Go, we teamed up with the charity last Saturday to hold a pop up stall in Sittingbourne High Street.
We had a wonderful day and it was fantastic for our staff to meet the team from Holding On Letting Go. Shoppers and members of the public joined in with our raffle and tombola and hopefully learned something about this very important local charity too.
A bottle of bubbly was cracked open and glasses raised in celebration, Harrisons have also pledged to continue the support for the children’s charity with more fundraising in future and a pledge to bring the total raised to £20k, hopefully by this time next year!
Fund raising initiatives organised by Harrisons included donating £50 for every house sale; holding raffles and a team member participating in a sponsored bike ride. Harrisons also worked with other local businesses to donate Christmas presents to the children being supported by Holding On Letting Go.
All the staff at Harrisons have got behind the fundraising initiative which has only been running for 12 months, but has already raised enough money for the charity to support 30 children who are struggling with the loss of someone they love. With a child in the UK being bereaved of a parent every 22 minutes, and many more being bereaved of a sibling, other family members, or friends, the services offered by Holding On Letting Go are invaluable to many children throughout Kent.
