SAIF Supports President’s CharitiesMarch 17, 2014 // No Comments
SAIF’s outgoing National President was delighted to present cheques to his two chosen charities at the Southport banquet on Saturday evening.
Richard Edwards chose to support Anthony Nolan and Chorley-based children’s hospice Derian House in his year of office. Laura Watts of Anthony Nolan and Susie Poppit of Derian House attended the banquet to receive the fundraising money of approximately £16,000 to be shared between the two charities. Extra money is still being received.
Richard thanked SAIF members and associate members for their amazing fundraising efforts on his behalf during the year. A large part of the money was raised through Richard’s prize draw for holiday vouchers. Third prize for £1000 was won by Robert Caunce, who donated the vouchers back for auction. This raised an extra £800 for the charities, generously bid for by Jeff Walker of SAIFinsure. Second prize for £2000 was won by Sandeep Kooner and Andrew Harding was the lucky winner of top prize of £3000 worth of holiday vouchers.
