Rita's egg-static after charity win

Two charities will have an egg-scellent Easter thanks to generous staff and Dyke Yaxley clients.  We raffled off the gaint Easter egg, raising a fantastic £126 for our chosen charities of the year.
 
The egg was donated by one of Dyke Yaxley's clients – Ben Foskett from Magna Specialist Confectioners in Telford – and the lucky winner was Rita Allington, from Kingsland Wealth Management.
 
Staff, clients and contacts all generously supported the initiative, and the money will now be split between Shrewsbury Samaritans and Stay – a Telford charity that helps homeless young people, providing housing and support for individuals and families across the Telford and Wrekin area.
 
Jackie Young, who is part of Dyke Yaxley’s Corporate Social Responsibility team, said: “Every year we nominate a charity or charities and focus our efforts on raising as much cash as possible for the chosen causes.
 
“Our aim this year is to raise £2,000 in total, and we’ve already taken part in several events so far that have made a real contribution towards our target.”
 
Their success this year follows hot on the heels of Dyke Yaxley handing a cheque to the Severn Hospice for just over £3,100, after smashing their previous fund-raising target.
 
The money was raised through a variety of events including a girls v boys netball match, a quiz night, Question of Sport night, poker night, cake sale, cricket evening auction, and a Christmas card donation board.
 
“We always get so much support for our efforts and we’d like to thank everyone who has dug deep so far this year to help raise cash for this year’s charities,” said Jackie.
