After taking part in this year’s tough Charity Challenge weekends, Samworth Brothers’ teams are now seeing lots of the money raised going to good local causes in Leicestershire, Cornwall and elsewhere.
In total an amazing £370,232.00 was raised by the Samworth Brothers Charity Challenge teams during the event in Wales in June. Now the fantastic and fulfilling task of giving the money out is being undertaken.
Four teams from Bradgate Bakery in Leicester; ‘Over the Hill and Far a Wales’, ‘Team Shortbreads’, ‘Team-3PLUS1’, and ‘Winning Fillings’ raised £20,869.00 for Wishes4Kids, the bakery’s chosen charity. The money will fund a Christmas party and a trip to a local pantomime, and has already been used for an outdoor activity event.
