We have been getting involved in a range of volunteer work and activities to raise money for our amazing nominated charity, the Seashell Trust!

Spirit Group teams have been taking time out of their busy work days to get down and dirty, doing much-needed ground works in the Seashell Trust gardens ahead of Autumn’s arrival.

The Spirit to ride

On Sunday 16th September, six members of Team Spirit Group donned their helmets and lycra for the Seashell Trust’s Cycling Sportive fundraiser event. Ed, Eve, Debbie, Laura, Lizzie and Steph bravely faced off the gruelling elements to cycle their chosen 50km or 75km routes through the hilly Peaks. Some of the pot holes they encountered put the Grand Canyon to shame!

A real test of endurance for our team and a brilliant outcome, with loads of money raised for the Seashell Trust to boot!

But the fundraising efforts haven’t stopped there for us – our office snack box exchanges donations for a selection of delicious and healthy nibbles, allowing us to collect money for the Seashell Trust every day. Even more tempting treats have appeared at both our Didsbury and Alderley Park offices in the form of a Bake Off, bringing in more donations!

 

We can’t wait for what the next few months hold as we continue to work together to raise all we can for the Seashell Trust!

Spirit Group is very pleased to announce that our nominated charity for 2018/19 will be the Seashell Trust, based in Cheadle Hulme, very near our Didsbury offices!

Founded in 1873 as a school for deaf children, Seashell Trust now offers specialist programmes of care for children and young people with complex learning difficulties in their school, college and residential care homes.

Spirit Group teams from our Didsbury and Alderley Park offices will be getting stuck in at Seashell volunteer days and organising all kinds of activities to raise what we can for this wonderful cause. Some of the things we hope to get involved in are:

  • Administration
  • Befriending
  • Classroom support
  • Events
  • Gardening
  • Swimming and sport
  • Therapy

The funds we raise will go towards activity trips, assistive technology to help with communication and development, family events to support the parents and siblings of Seashell’s children and young people, and sports and therapy equipment.

We look forward to sharing our fund-raising and volunteering experiences that will all go towards improving the learning outcomes and quality of life of Seashell’s children and young people.
