CML Holds Easter Fundraiser

Lutterworth-based logistics industry leader, CML, takes pride in its fundraising events and decided to hop to it and raise funds for its nominated charity, Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People, as well as thank all of its employees for their hard work and dedication.

The charity provides care and support to children with life-limiting illnesses and their families. To help raise funds and hopefully smash last year’s target, CML hatched a plan to hold an egg-citing Easter raffle on Thursday 18th April.

CML received some fantastic support from a number of its customers and suppliers including Skye Direct, Jury’s Inn, Perkbox, Crown Lift Trucks, Bjorn Borg, Corbin & King, Hacche Retail and Juvenate who donated some cracking prizes ranging from a virtual reality headset, overnight stay and meal at Jury’s Inn, 2 x £50 Amazon vouchers, a tracksuit, a biscuit hamper, 4 x book hampers as well as three months’ gym membership for Juvenate Hinckley.

The raffle also had some fantastic gifts that were generously donated by CML and its employees including an Xbox One S, 2 x Easter egg hampers, 2 x Love to shop vouchers, a food hamper, a toiletries hamper as well as numerous Easter eggs, food and alcohol prizes. Rainbows themselves donated a hamper, 2 x £25 Next vouchers and, last but by no means least, a huge cuddly donkey called Dylan.

CML took this opportunity to thank all of its employees for their hard work and dedication by giving each employee an Easter egg. The event was a huge success with £955.30 raised on the day for CML’s good cause, taking the grand total raised for Rainbows since 2007 to a tremendous £51,105.30

Letisha Harbidge, HR Advisor and part of the Charity and Events Team at CML, said, “CML is delighted to have received some really fantastic prizes for this raffle from not only CML’s customers and suppliers but also our employees. I’d like to thank everyone for getting involved to raise as much money as possible for this well-deserved cause. It is our pleasure that we are able to continue supporting Rainbows and the fantastic work they do.”

Emily Wright, Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser at Rainbows, added, “Thank you to everyone who supported this fantastic event, either by buying a ticket, or donating prizes! We’re so grateful to CML for their continued support – we are almost entirely reliant on donations, and without them we simply would not be able to keep on bringing care and happiness to our children and their families across the East Midlands. A huge well done to all for this wonderful total!”
