A colourful Wednesday at Avante Care & Support
Staff at Avante Care & Support Head Office in Faversham donned their orange clothes on Wednesday 25th November, in support of International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, supported by the Oasis Domestic Abuse service. The Oasis service, based in Thanet, Kent provides help and advice for those living with violence and intimidation in East Kent.
To help raise valuable funds, staff at Avante Care & Support not only dressed in orange but took part in various fundraising activities including, guess the weight of the cake, guess how many balloons fit in a Fiat 500, guess the sweeties in a jar and finally a raffle that took place in the afternoon with all the prizes donated by Jacqui Morris the Director of Quality Standards and Compliance and is also a member of the Board at the Oasis Charity.
An excellent sum of £162 was raised and congratulations must go to Adam in the Finance department guessing closest to the amount of sweets in the jar, the cake weighted 4lb 4oz and Diane from HR and Sammie in Recruitment guessed 4lb 2oz so after a game of heads and tails the winner of the cake went to Sammie, lastly Kaylea on Reception guessed correctly 63 balloons in the Fiat 500 and scooped the Champagne and the Mini Fiat 500.
“It’s certainly challenging times for all charities, but especially for smaller charities like Oasis. It was lovely to see my colleagues at Avante Care & Support supporting Oasis on a very important day, by wearing orange to highlight a brighter future and eliminate violence and intimidation against women. I would like to thank them all for their support today”.Jacqui Morris.
