Ryman-Taineers Raise Over £6,000 For Children’s Charity
Over £6,000 has been raised by Ryman team members in support of Starlight Children’s Foundation.
On Sunday 15th October, the leading high street stationery sent 14 team members on an expedition to climb Snowdon, or Yr Wyddfa, in Snowdonia National Park, Gwynedd.
The team set out to raise funds for Starlight, the UK’s leading charity for children’s play in hospitals and hospices. With an original goal of £1,000, the Ryman team more than quadrupled their target, raising an impressive £4,052 to date.
The Theo Paphitis Trust has also committed to matching up to £200 per volunteer to support the charity initiative further, raising the total to almost £6,000.
Head of Marketing at Ryman, Chloe Danskin, said: “Braving 2-degree temperatures and an arduous climb to the top of Snowdon, we’re so proud of Team Ryman team for their efforts to support Starlight Children’s Foundation."
“Two Ryman team members went above and beyond in their efforts to fundraise, taking a daring plunge into a freezing lake in order to raise extra funds!"
“At Ryman we understand the great importance of children’s play, so it’s a great honour to be supporting Starlight. Thanks to the team’s efforts and the generosity of every person that donated, we’re able to support Starlight efforts to provide play for children facing illness.”
Starlight is the UK’s leading charity for children’s play in healthcare. All donations will help support families and children in hospitals and hospice to experience the power of play, boosting their wellbeing and resilience during illness.
