Retail Maxim’s Fundraising Success for Colleague

Earlier this year, a colleague of ours’ son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes.

Due to this, his mother must test his blood every 2 hours leading to the two of them being unable to enjoy a full night’s sleep.

We discovered that they were able to purchase a continuous glucose monitor retailing for £750, as this is not available through the NHS, we set on a fundraising mission.

Together, in just three weeks, we were able to obtain enough items for two Christmas hampers, which have since been raffled off, as well as an office quiz and to surprise our colleague with the amount of money we had raised, we invited her out for afternoon tea and surprised her with the great news!

We’d like to send out a huge thank you for the generosity of all in the office, friends, families and the local business around us who helped out. We are pleased to say we raised enough for the glucose monitor which will hopefully prove to be a huge help in their lives.

Thanks again to everyone who contributed either by donating items for the hampers, partaking in our quiz, purchasing raffle tickets or attending our delicious afternoon tea. You are all truly fantastic!
