Willow Wood is pleased to announce that the champion fundraiser in our 20/20 Challenge is the Ashton based ‘Your Tax Shop,’ Between February and the end of April the team of accountants flung themselves into a flurry of fundraising and raised the wonderful amount of £1,740.82.
They were presented with a beautiful glass trophy and certificate from Willow Wood chairman, Pat McCloskey during the awards evening which was held at Stalybridge Celtic Football Club on Wednesday 8 May. Partner Yvonne Cookson said: “We’re delighted to win, and so happy that these funds will help support such a fantastic local charity.”
Elaine McConnell, corporate fundraiser said: “I can’t thank Your Tax Shop and the other 19 local teams enough. Together, they’ve raised over £7,000 for Willow Wood – and that’s with some funds still to come in and any Gift Aid claimed on the sponsored events
“The runners up were Stalybridge Archery Club who raised £1,204 with a 24 hour sponsored arch-a-thon, and I must mention the Crafty Crafters who brought in £1,040 with the sale of their pet snuggle mats. However, we’re deeply grateful to all the teams for everything they did to raise vital funds. We’ll be repeating the challenge next year and hope even more teams will take part.”
