There’s a warm glow around Kingfisher’s East Brent showroom following the wonderful Winter Warmer event held on 14th November.
Customers and friends old and new flocked to support the team at Kingfisher in their bid to raise funds for two incredibly worthwhile charities – Macmillan Cancer Support and Children’s Hospice South West.
The popular raffle featured generous donations from a long list of local businesses and suppliers and visitors were plied with refreshments including mulled cider from local firm Thatchers – perfect for a chilly November evening!
With entertainment by local folk band, and Kingfisher customers, Magenta, the crowd was charmed by beautiful songs with wonderful harmonies whilst buying tasty homemade treats from the bric-a-brac stall which included Managing Director Angie’s preserves and Financial Director Michelle’s fudge.
Our younger visitors enjoyed not only the colouring competition but also the excitement of the Cracker raffle. 250 crackers containing either a chocolate or raffle number were sold at the event and with a range of prizes available including a new door, supplied and fitted by Kingfisher.
Many happy prize winners were delighted to celebrate with us as they pulled their crackers and revealed their reward!
Sales of charity Christmas cards, diaries and calendars raised £260 assisted by enthusiastic Children’s Hospice volunteers.
Special thanks must go to our Kingfisher installation and admin teams who brought in a wide range of delicious cake donations that were sold alongside hot and cold drinks.
The Winter Warmer event raised an amazing £1,176 on the night and with 100% of takings going direct to our two charities we’re delighted with what our team has achieved.
At Kingfisher we are so proud to have the best team that we could possibly wish for. Everyone works so hard and delivers their best throughout the year, and for that we are truly grateful.
The Winter Warmer event could not have been such a success without our fantastic supporters and suppliers and we extend our sincere thanks to everyone for their generosity.
