We are acutely aware that we are part of a local community, and we want to play a part in helping others. Here are a few of the initiatives we are involved in, and we hope you’d join us in putting something back!
The Great Barwells Bake Off
If any of you follow us on Twitter or Facebook, you’ll know how much we enjoy baking. Last Christmas we decided to invite a lot of people along for a coffee morning to raise funds for the QEH NeoNatal Unit. Many clients, associates and friends baked cakes and joined us and we were pleased to raise a grand total of £500.
When he’s not teaching or playing music, Lee takes on challenges to raise money for charity. This year’s challenge is to climb all 5,895 metres of Mount Kilimanjaro in aid of local mental health charity, West Norfolk Mind.
We’ve been involved in helping his campaign – if you’d like to donate, here’s the link.
Wisbech St Mary Football
As in previous seasons, we’re continuing our support for Wisbech St Mary Under 11s Purples as they move up through the age groups. Also this year, we will be more heavily involved in the running of the Wisbech St Mary club, as the first team are now at level 6 of the league pyramid. Keep an eye on the whole clubs progress throughout the season here.
The GEAR event in King’s Lynn is one of the most popular in the area, attracting a huge number of participants – and crowds. We were proud to be one of the sponsors of the day in 2016, and Team Barwell took part in the Mini GEAR. See how we did here.
