Danbro’s Fundraising Week for Nepal

On hearing of the Nepal Earthquake only a couple of weeks ago and the devastating affect this has had our thoughts turned to how Danbro could help and do whatever we could to support the work Operation Orphan are doing in Nepal.

You can see from Brad’s blog on the website and the photographs just how sad the situation is and how much work there is to do.

With heads together and ideas flowing we decided to start our week of fundraising with the opportunity for everybody to dress down (usually this only happens on a Friday) with a contribution of £1.00 a day.

Fiona and Jenny then put together a sweepstake using characters from animation films and a “spot the ball” competition – winners names will be picked out a hat on Friday 15th! Aly put these all over Jubilee House so it won’t take long to fill them up!

On Tuesday we heard the frightening news that Nepal has been hit but another earthquake. Our prayers go out to everybody and for the safe return of Brad. Throughout the week all our wonderful bakers have been gearing up for the Bake Sale on Friday – you would not believe how competitive they are! Mind you the cakes are fantastic. Our thanks to Brothers of Charity as well for donating all the money from the sale of their cakes today in the coffee shop.

It’s Friday and Bake day has finally arrived. Aly has loaded up the trolley ready to take them around the building…although a few of us did sneak in early! Can definitely recommend them all. I have never seen so many fabulous gorgeous cakes! A very talented bunch!

Operation Orphan have done an amazing job supporting those in need where they can in Nepal and we hope that we’ve helped in some way. We’ve managed to raise £506 – so thank you everybody at Danbro for joining in.
