Manchester money-making

Manchester House have been busy planning what they're going to do for Community Week and in fact have already run some events.  Lynn Henshaw, House Manager, organised a raffle in the Northern Region to raise money for Help The Heroes, a charity close to Lynn's heart, as her son is in the armed forces and has just returned from duty in Afghanistan.  The draw took place at the Northern Regional Meeting on Tuesday 15th March and had some attractive prizes:

1st prize  was a night at the Renaissance Hotel which was won by John Jones from Birmingham House.  2nd prize was a bottle of Champagne which went to Danial Degaris from Manchester House.  The raffle raised £450 so many thanks to all Managers in the Northern Region for supporting this worthy cause.
Manchester have also planned the following activities:  A car wash, a Family Fun Walk in a local park, Toys & Clothes collection for 'Manchester Kids',  a local charity which supports local families who live on the poverty line and a 3 day bike ride in the warehouse! 
"We have 2 bikes on turbo trainers which will be pedalled non-stop for 3 days. You can buy a half hour slot for £5 to ride yourself or you can pay £10 and nominate somebody to ride for you. I hope Lynn is up to the challenge of being nominated lots of times!"

We look forward to seeing the photos from these activities as they happen.
