Ben’s fundraiser at The Devon on Thursday was a runaway success. The pub was packed to the rafters and he raised a staggering £1406. He has a target of £1600 for the London to Paris Bike ride but with match funding from his employers at Lloyds has already beaten that target and still has more fundraising at work planned!
The night was brilliant. Ben worked at The Devon for 10 years and used to run the weekly quiz night there so for his fundraiser he returned to host the popular quiz. He and Lora approached businesses and asked on their local facebook page for raffle prizes and had an excellent array to win. The raffle was extremely popular and they sold a staggering 4 books of tickets and had to print more on the pub computer to keep up with demand! He also talked 4 friends into having their hairy legs and chests waxed and people ‘supported’ them by putting money in the bucket to make that happen.
Ben, Lora and their friends and colleagues worked so hard on the night, but what an amazing result for SNAPS, Leeds Mencap and for his London to Paris Bike Challenge fundraising.
