This Christmas, Ipswich based companies GenR8 and The Bear Garden are working together to bring joy to children cared for by leading local children’s charity; East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).  EACH and The Bear Garden want to help create special memories and help families share some big Christmas bear hugs by launching Ipswich’s first ‘Great Bear Giveaway’.  The aim of the campaign is to provide every child receiving care and support from The Treehouse this Christmas with a special personalised ‘build-your-own’ bear.  Throughout November and December, every GenR8 Card sold will fund a ‘build-your-own’ teddy bear for a child, with all additional profits donated to the charity.  The GenR8 card costs £15 and not only means you’ll become a member of the GenR8 scheme which offers you a personalised GenR8 Card, valid for unlimited use to receive exclusive discounts at over 75 Ipswich businesses for a whole year, but your money-saving purchase will have funded a personalised ‘build-your-own’ bear for a child receiving hospice care this Christmas.  To get involved and help create a special memory this Christmas, visit the Hub on Monday 24 November to sign-up for your GenR8 card.

CiN 2014Well what a week that was!  Pulling out the stops, Adastral certainly entered into the spirit of Children in Need 2014 and you did us proud. Based on an initial count-up, we’ve busted last year’s total which currently stands at an estimated £6,200 with more donations to be accounted for.

You couldn’t fail to miss the week long activities, with credit going to our enthusiastic Adastral Park core team of Grads and Apprentices, who amongst other things, organised deliveries of tea/coffee and cake to your desk, tournaments, entertainment, language stalls and prize draw and of course, the slippery tug of war against our resident fire team. Thanks guys for being such good sports and better luck next year!

Some fantastic, yummy creations were entered into the Best Baked CiN cake competition and thanks to everyone who gave up their time to bake. Judged by our head chef, Alan, congratulations goes to Baz & Debra Deans who were awarded the 2014 coveted trophy for their ingenious and poignant poppy/hero combo.

Other call-outs go to Alan Marshall and the Global Network Services team from the 5th floor of Orion, who ran their cycling challenge, raising £350. Rachael Deller and the Group Engineering Services team on the 4th floor Orion for running a tuck shop, along with other competitions and donations, they raised an amazing £820.

Basically, a huge thank you has to go out to everyone who got involved and supported, whether through fundraising, volunteering or donating. Children in Need 2014 at Adastral wouldn’t have been so successful without you!
