Taylor Patterson Raises £6000 for Cash for Kids

During 2016 staff at Taylor Patterson have helped raise over £6000 for Rock FM’s Cash for Kids charity.

The charity provides a helping hand to disabled and disadvantaged children across Lancashire. Each year they hope to raise thousands of pounds for grants to children’s charities, individuals and many other causes. All the money, raised locally, is spent locally and goes to children and young people under 18 throughout the region.

Louise Potter, Office Manager at Taylor Patterson commented, “Each year Taylor Patterson selects a local charity to donate their annual fundraising activities to.  We are grateful to the staff, clients and professional contacts who have helped us raise this amount for such a fantastic charity”.

Nikki Thompson, Charity Manager at Cash for Kids added, “I would like to thank everyone at Taylor Patterson for everything they have done to support Cash for Kids this year.  It has been wonderful to work with such an amazing group of people who have really engaged with our charity.  Not only have they supported us by raising money they have volunteered and donated presents and gifts to our Mission Christmas appeal. The money raised will make a huge difference to the lives of children in Lancashire”.

The fund raising activities during 2016 included the annual golf day and quiz, which celebrated its 10th anniversary, dressing up for Super Hero Day, cake bakes and donating toys each month in return for wearing casual clothes in the office.

We will shortly be announcing our chosen charity for 2017!
