Crystal Legal Services proudly handed over a mix of cash and presents to RSPCA Stapeley Grange Wildlife Centre following a phenomenal fundraising drive.
The Crystal team raised a total of £2,346 and presented the Nantwich branch of the RSPCA with their gifts on Thursday (26 October).
This fantastic amount of money meant that Crystal Legal Services was able to buy everything on Stapeley Grange’s wish list including rodent scales, ID scanners, aviary nets, heated mats, open air vivariums, bat boxes and more.
Our CEO, Tony Shields commented: “We were over the moon to be able to fulfil RSPCA Nantwich’s wish list and raise some additional money for them. The work the staff carries out is phenomenal and the resources are vital to the animals. There is always a need, it never eases up which we recognised, that is why our employees nominated this charity to fundraise for.”
Lee Stewart, manager of Stapeley Grange, said: “Crystal Legal Services contacted us back in June saying that we had been chosen by their staff as their charity of the quarter and that they would be fundraising from June to September for our animals.
“The end result of all their efforts was funding to help cover daily costs and a whole pile of equipment that we desperately needed in the hospital. The company and all their staff have been fantastic – Christmas has come early for our team!
“On behalf of Stapeley Grange, I would like to thank everyone involved. Their support has been very much appreciated.”
Over the course of three months, the Crystal team held a number of events to raise the money which included: a 35 mile “Walk for Wildlife”, bake sales, an ‘unleash your inner animal’ themed fancy dress, a silent auction, a raffle with prizes donated from various different businesses as well as the profits from our tuck shop which also went into the charity pot. Of the total, £749.84 was raised online and went straight to the charity with the remainder of the money going towards the wish list items.
Stephanie Higson from Crystal organised the fundraising. She added: “We love animals at Crystal Legal and we all are aware of the great job the RSPCA does but they need money to continue their good work. We held a variety of fundraising activities in the past couple of months to ensure we could collect a decent sum of money for this very worthy cause.”
