It is very uplifting on a lovely spring day to see local communities coming together for fundraising events. The Great Hampshire Cake Sale has been organised by The Hampshire Hunt and The Hursley Hambledon Hunt in aid of the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance. Their aim was to sell over 1,000 cakes and when I took along the cakes donated by The Country House Company I was overwhelmed by the huge amount of cakes, well over 1,000 by 11 am, and more were coming in all the time. The stand was laden with cakes of every description and behind were hundreds more ready to sell.
Red Nose day is a terrific national campaign encouraging the entire country to pull together to raise money for a wide range of charities. At The Country House Company we support as many local charities and fundraising events as possible providing financial support, signs, publicity, usually participation and always enthusiasm! It is one of the joys of being fully established and part of a community and just to make our Friday even better I have just had this email from a local fundraiser
“Marishelle, thank you for bringing a huge smile to my face on this somewhat grey Friday morning!! And will you please thank everyone at The Country House Company for their support which is really, really appreciated.”
