TMS took part in the SPOTacular day as we hosted our first ever Children In Need event! We had a fun filled day full of spotty people as we embraced the BBC Children in Need fundraiser. There was a host of activities for people around the Business Innovation Centre (BIC), from a raffle with different prizes, guess the chocolate in the jar and of course the TMS yearly bake sale!
This year we had strong contenders for our bake-off style competition ranging from tiffin’s to vegan chocolate cakes and there was even a prize for the best one! This year we opened the competition for everyone around the BIC to give Lorna, the reigning champion, more competitors! Lyndsey from TalentTech was tasked with a difficult job to taste all the cakes and decide a winner…the results are as follows…
With the efforts of TMS and other business around the BIC such as TalentTech, Geeka Media, Reeds (Coventry) and many others,we managed to raise a total of £285.28 from cash donations and through the Just Giving page campaign. This will be matched by TMS to bring the total to £570.56. This money will be used to help disadvantaged children and young people around the UK.
BBC Children in Need charity raised £33.5million nationwide!
