Browne Craine staff come together for Isle of Man Relay for Life
Browne Craine staff have come together in a bid to raise money as a team in aid of Cancer Research’s Isle of Man Relay for Life. The event which is being held on 26th and 27th August at the National Sports Centre sees teams from all over the Island take part.
The Relay for Life is a year-round team fundraising challenge bringing communities together to beat cancer. There are over 50 Relay for Life events happening across the UK, and thousands more round the world. During the event, teams, survivors, carers and volunteers come together to take part in a 24-hour Relay for Life event to celebrate their fundraising. Teams set up camp and take turns to walk around the track through the night.
As part of their fundraising strategy, Browne Craine staff are doing lots of things to help them reach their fundraising target of £2,000.00. So far, they have held two mini bake sales and a silent auction for a Galaxy Easter egg which has raised £166.07. They have lots of future things planned including various competitions (keep an eye out for these on our Facebook page!), organising fitness classes for friends and family, and taking part in other fundraisers throughout the year.
Team Captain Amy Killip commented: “We have such an amazing team who are really passionate about raising money for Cancer Research UK. We didn’t really know much about the Relay for Life event last year but we entered a last minute team and managed to have at least one person walking round the track for the full 24 hours of the event. This year, we are going to be fully prepared with our camping gear, food and drink, and activities to keep us entertained for the whole day and night! The team is really looking forward to it. Hopefully with all of our fundraising ideas, we will reach our fundraising target.”
Browne Craine Staff Director, Craig Mitchell added: “As a firm, our staff are really keen to get involved with charitable events, particularly the ones that help out our community. Last year, we were overwhelmed by the amount of people who took part in the event itself; it was great to see the Island come together for a fantastic cause. We’re more prepared for the event in August but we are looking forward to being part of the Relay once again.”
