We've kicked of the season of giving with a donation of over £3000 to local Leicestershire Local charity ‘Hope Against Cancer’ from our hugely popular Christmas Preview Event in early October.
We raised this amazing total through our 'Sparkle and Shine' Prize draw and donated a percentage from all sales taken during the event.
If you didn't know, Hope Against Cancer is Leicestershire and Rutland’s local cancer research charity. They were established in 2003 to bring cutting-edge research to our area and make clinical trials available to local people. They have raised in excess of £5m and funded over 60 research projects tackling many different forms of cancer and work in partnership with local universities and hospitals to fund pioneering research to ensure that Leicestershire remains a hub of expertise in cancer research and treatment.
Nigel Rose, CEO of Hope Against Cancer, commented “Hope Against Cancer is delighted to be working with and supported by Narborough Hall. We would like to say a big thank you to Sophie and Simon Edwards for embarking on this mutually beneficial partnership. A great example of successful local company helping a local charity to save lives through supporting our cancer research here in Leicestershire. We are incredibly pleased to have been chosen as the Charity of the Year by such a high profile local business.”
We are so pleased to have raised such a great sum for Hope Against Cancer. We chose them as our Charity of the Year because of the fantastic work they do locally and we are delighted that this money will help in the fight against cancer locally. We would like to thank everyone who visited Narborough Hall during our Christmas Preview week, bought a raffle ticket or a festive item and helped us to reach this amazing total!
We have lots more planned to raise money for this worthy charity so please sign up to our mailing list to be the first to hear about our next event!
