Over 40 members of staff at Avalon, one of Europe’s leading providers of pre-paid funeral plans, raised over £250 for Red Nose Day.
Games, quizzes, a raffle and a cake sale were held at the company’s UK headquarters in Handforth Dean, Wilmslow, Cheshire, with braver participants putting themselves forward for a sponsored leg wax.
Ruth Billman, Business Development Assistant at Avalon, who organised the fundraising events, said: “Everyone joined in and the day was a lot of fun. Most importantly, we raised £252.42 for a great cause.”
The team at Avalon are keen fundraisers, previously raising money for Children in Need, Macmillan Cancer Support and Sport Relief. The company is also planning further activities, with a group of female members of staff set to participate in the Pretty Muddy 5k Race for Life in Tatton Park, Cheshire in June 2015.
Avalon funeral plans protect customers from rising funeral costs and the worry of arranging a funeral when the time comes. Avalon has three comprehensive funeral plan packages available in the UK; Balmoral, Highgrove and Windsor Way.
