Bailey Fisher raises over £17,000 for charity - 10/10/14❰ Back
Bailey Fisher is pleased to have assisted three charities during 2014, raising over £17,000 in recent months for the Arthur Rank Hospice, Dreams Come True and Action for Children.
Bailey Fisher raised £14,000 for the Arthur Rank Hospice Charity in July as a result of a Black & White Ball for 120 guests, hosted at Paddocks House. All profits from the event went to support the provision of a new hospice to embody one overriding objective – to continue to be a Centre of Excellence in the provision of patient-led ‘specialist palliative care.’
Lynn Morgan, CEO of the Arthur Rank Hospice Charity was delighted with the outcome of the event. “It was a really wonderful evening and the feedback on the night was excellent. It was professional, glamorous, fun and hugely lucrative for the charity.”
Bailey Fisher became involved with the Arthur Rank Hospice Charity in 2013 when Founding Partner Ann Fisher joined the Campaign Committee, aiming to raise funds for the new hospice.
Most recently, Paul Bailey, Joe Graziano, Toby Young and Andrew Moore from Bailey Fisher raised £2000 for Action for Children, by sleeping out as part of Byte Night on Friday 3 October. Byte Night is a national sleep-out event and is Action for Children’s biggest annual fundraiser. Each year, hundreds of like minded people from the technology and business arena give up their beds for one night to help change the lives of vulnerable young people. It all began in 1998 when 30 individuals slept out in London and raised £35,000. Since then Byte Night has grown to 8 UK locations and over 1500 people slept out in a bid to raise £1.3m on 3 October 2014. Byte Night is one of the UK’s top 20 mass participation charity events and is the largest charity sleep-out having raised over £6.2m since the first event.
Bailey Fisher raised £1200 for national children’s charity Dreams Come True as a result of our annual Women 4 Technology event at the House of Lords in June. The funds raised supported a trip to the US for one of the charity’s dream children, Michael, to visit the life of his hero Martin Luther King.❰ Back
