Fundraising event 09th/10th/11th June 2017
John Coffey is a 47 years old former Sapper and with his two brothers and nephew they are attempting a three pronged charity event to raise money for ABF The Soldiers Charity (charity number 1146420 / Veterans In Action (charity number 1128026)/talking2minds (charity number 1131142) which are all service charities. As a former Royal Engineer these charities are very close to John’s heart.
The events are as follows:
- The Cateran Yomp
- Month long raffle
- Bag packing event in all Quality Save stores
THE CATERAN YOMP
John Coffey along with his two brothers and my nephew will on 10th June 2017 do The Cateran Yomp which is s a 54 mile walk through the Scottish highlands to be completed in under 24 hours . The Team attempted this last year achieving 36 miles in 17 hours so its going to be tough but if it was easy then everyone would do it. The Team will be setting up an online just giving page for donations and sponsorship.
MONTH LONG RAFFLE
Helen Banks will be the raffle co-ordinater using her knowledge and contacts to source and collect donations for the raffle and be in charge of drawing the raffle . The raffle will be carried out in all 22 Quality Save stores and also be doing it online in conjunction with the just giving page.
BAG PACKING EVENT
Kelly Herod will oversee the bag packing event in all the Quality Save stores which will involve staff members in the stores being in army themed fancy dress and doing bag packing at the tills.
Last year the Team managed to raise over £2,000 and this year they would like to at least treble that and this would mean £2,000 to each charity.
