Retail therapy fighting cancer
Our shop, Raindrops on Roses, look set to record another bumper year. We’re expecting to donate close to £40k of money to Action Against Cancer this year. http://www.aacancer.org/.
Forget the presents – it was a year of giving
A record number of ABAers committed their time to giving something back this year. We know how busy it can get but can’t emphasise enough how rewarding it feels to raise some money and challenge yourself to achieve a personal ambition! Here are a few highlights...
Making cake, ending loneliness
It’s been another year of cake at ABA! And we’ve had tea parties too. Aislinn has been helping in the fight to end loneliness with the lovely charity Contact the Elderly (https://www.contact-the-elderly.org.uk/). This helps bring together older people who would otherwise be isolated. Her oldest guest is an incredible 97!!
From running to boxing to crawling through mud, so many ABAers got active in 2018. One highlight was Mark (our Client Services Director) completing a half marathon in well under 2 hours and raising a huge £11k for charity.
