Charity Events 2018
At Aquatrust we have a very strong team ethic and this year we have decided to use this to help fundraise for a local charity. Having visited Hollybank Trust, Mirfield our managing Director Gary Russell was confident that this was a very worthy cause.
Who are Hollybank Trust?
Hollybank Trust are a registered charity based in Mirfield, West Yorkshire. They have been providing care for over 60 years. They support and educate over a hundred children and adults at the special school, residential homes and adult daytime activity programme.
This in turn improves the lives of their parents, family, friends and wider community.
Originally set up in 1954 in Huddersfield, but moved to Mirfield in 1990, Hollybank Trust now runs a school, purpose built residential homes for both children and adults, an adult education and daytime activity programme and community adult homes across West and South Yorkshire.
Their main site at Roe Head is set in 22 acres of beautiful, well-cared for grounds with views across to the Pennines, and is steeped in History, particularly the older building where all three Bronte sisters were educated and Charlotte returned as teacher.
The school was graded outstanding by Ofsted… “Hollybank is an outstanding school. It is clear that students really enjoy being here and they participate fully in life and learning”.
Based just 3.5 miles from Aquatrust Head office and hearing about the fundraising events they have in place this year we just had to get involved. We have within the few weeks of the meeting we have a team of 3 employees signed up for the Gung-Ho event on 19th May 2018 and a team of 7 signed up for the Sky Dive on the 24th June 2018.
We are very proud of our employees who are responded so well to our request and we will really look forward to cheering them on along with many of our family, friends and associates.
We are also looking for great support in the form of sponsorship to help us fundraise for this very worthy cause!
All the employees involved have their own sponsorship form however as team we have created a Virgin Money Giving page which is linked straight to the Hollybank Trust.
