Fundraiser event at Hesten Lodge
Hesten Lodge Wellbeing Hub hosted a summer BBQ fundraising event for customers, parents, carers and ECL staff on Wednesday 7th September. ECL’s CEO, Keir Lynch, attended the event that was held in the grounds of the centre.
Demonstrating superb teamwork and efforts to facilitate the event, the team at Hesten Lodge raised £391.00 through raffle ticket sales. By approaching local businesses and asking them to donate items for the raffle, the team managed to secure an array of impressive gifts; including a Smyths Toys Space Scooter (which retails at £99.99), afternoon tea for two at The Royal Hotel, Southend, a professional photoshoot with a complimentary digital print, horse riding lessons, a personal training session and DJ lessons for up to six people – to name a few.
