Since we launched in 2009 £5 million more has gone to charity, as a result of fundraisers choosing Virgin Money Giving instead of other fundraising websites. To celebrate this fantastic achievement and at raise even more for charity, we’ve challenged the Virgin Money Store network to raise 5 million pennies (£50,000) that is £667 per Store.
The stores are supporting either a a local cause or Virgin Money’s corporate charity Anthony Nolan. Their task is to come up with a range of fundraising events to hit their donation target. So far we’ve seen ideas from wine tasting in Dorking to Marathon running in Belfast.
John, the Store Manager from Cheltenham even spent 4 hours cycling outside his local Asda superstore and the Kingston Store have organised a ‘Benefit Evening’ filled with live entertainment, a DJ, casino tables and an auction.
