Lifetime staged a charity bake sale and raffle at their Barnsley headquarters on Wednesday – and raised over £500 for a charity trek.
Lifetime’s intrepid ‘young guns’ Luke Worthy, James Fisher, Joe Musson, Charlie Parker and Danny North are taking part in the 2017 Invesco Perpetual Snowdon Challenge – and their work colleagues put their baking skills to good use in order to help them raise the necessary funds.
Now in its 10th year, the Challenge has moved to the beautiful setting of Snowdonia. On day one, teams will take on three Welsh Peaks, covering 27 kilometres to the top of the mighty Snowdon, Glyder Fawr and Glyder Fach. Day two will see the teams swapping their hiking boots for cycling helmets and undertaking a 47 kilometre mountain bike trail, followed by a 5k canoe around the Llyn Peris reservoir.
Every team are asked to raise £3,300 – the cost of sending just one child on the Youth Adventure Trust programme.
To help get to that figure, Lifetime House was the venue for a delicious bake sale. The invitation sent out to neighbouring businesses was gratefully received – and the goodies quickly gobbled up!
The raffle, to win either wine, prosecco, chocolate, a two course meal for two at Parker’s Café and Brasserie and a Go-Kart voucher at Tyke Racing, plus other prizes, went extremely well. Oh…..and a dance routine by the ‘Snowdon Gang’ (to a Britney Spears hit record) earned them £100 from Lifetime financial planner Jen!
The total raised from Wednesday’s fund-raising efforts was £518.72.
Also, at the weekend, our young ‘trekkers’ got their hands on £1,000 – after delivering a ‘silver service’ for the ‘Lifetime Ladies Night’!
