It was a great start to a very exciting charity fund raising year ahead!
For their 20th year in business, Poole-based IT solutions provider, Enhanced, set themselves a challenge to find 20 companies to help us raise £20,000, with all the proceeds going directly to Boo.
20 companies soon came on board each one agreeing to raise £1,000!
Enhanced held a launch event to further explain the project to the interested parties, which was attended by Boo trustees Russell Hicks and Jenny Kendall.
Russell gave an excellent talk about the charity, how it has grown and the projects that they want to develop to keep Boo’s dream alive.
Managing Director and Boo trustee Simon White explained just how the £20,000 would be spent. It will help build new class rooms, fund teachers and help develop extra courses. Enhanced will specifically be involved in the launch of a basic computing course, which will increase the knowledge and the business acumen of many willing pupils.
The response to the challenge has been exceptional with further companies wanting to become involved.
The atmosphere of the evening was extremely positive and fund raising ideas were exchanged many will certainly be a great challenge.
We’d like to say a sincere thank you to all those involevd. Let’s see just how much we can raise for our cause!
