Spreading Christmas cheer

Following on from our Movember competition at the Chartered Institute of Housing North East’s regional conference in November, we were pleased to hear that the winners of our competition both donated their champagne prize to Christmas raffles within their organisations.

Graham Scanlon, the male whose photo had the most ‘likes’ on our Facebook page, donated his bottle of champagne to a raffle within his organisation Keepmoat. The raffle managed to make a fantastic £811 for the Sick Children Trust- the organisation that founded seven clean, comfortable and secure ‘homes from home’ at six hospitals throughout the UK- one of them located within The Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle.

The livin girls, the females whose photo had the most ‘likes’, also donated their bottle of champagne to a raffle and managed to raise a fantastic £300 for Movember within their organisation.

Thank you again to everyone who took part in our competition, not only have we managed to raise over £600 for Movember but we’ve also been able to help a number of families across our region when they need it most.

All of the pictures from our competition can be found on our Facebook page.
