Charity Calendar Cheques Presented!
Published: 17th February 2017
Final counts have been made from the monies raised through the sales and donations to the 2017 Charity Calendar produced by the team at Beamish Transport.
A brilliant £5,444 was raised to be divided between two local charities, St Cuthberts Hospice and the If U Care Share Foundation. Our MD, Darrin, attended the premises of the two charities to present them with cheques for £2,777 each, posing for a couple of snaps as he went!
The calendar was shot of various members of the team including drivers, workshop staff and the transport office in a ‘Calendar Girls’ style, with the courageous models braving the camera (and the cold!) to support these two wonderful local charities.
St Cuthberts Hospice is a Durham based charity providing specialist palliative and end of life care to all those affected by life-limiting illnesses, at a time and a place that is right for them.
If U Care Share Foundation is a Chester Le Street based charity concerned with the prevention, intervention and support of those bereaved by suicide.
Beamish Transport are proud to continually support charities and causes around the local area, something it has done for many years and hopes to for many years to come. Ideas for next years charity event are already being considered, although the Beamish Team feel they have already suffered enough nudity to last them a life time! Charity Darts match anyone???
