Charity Fundraising 2007
This year has got off to a flying start with the team supporting The Royal National Lifeboat Institute (any excuse to munch through some goodies – and wear trainers), raising £251.
Comic Relief’s 2007 Red Nose Day was celebrated in fashion by all the staff. As a break from the traditional pasties and cakes, we had a healthy breakfast instead. Office dress down helped to jolly everyone along during the day with the exception of the author (forgot it was dress down day and booked in clients). Highlight of the afternoon was our fabulous raffle with so many prizes it took an hour to run.
Thanks to everyone who organised events, took part or just parted with cash to raise an amazing £191.

More 2007 Fundraising News!
We are starting to move into our busy period for charity fundraising. After a quiet summer, fundraising is back with avengeance.
Friday 26 October saw the entire island awash with pink as the island became the Isle of Man Woman for the day in support of Breast Cancer charities. Just about everyone on the island wore something pink.
Pudsey’s Big Day
Another busy day raising money for Pudsey and the BBC Children in Need Appeal. We spend so much time drawing the raffle that we should have a new time code.
Thanks to everyone who took part and the office raised £238.This brings the total annual charity donation per head to £45 – not bad for a small team
2007 Accumulator Total is £1,050
Charity Fundraising 2006
The big hearted team at Crowe have had a busy 2006 raising money for charity. Events ranged from sponsored activity events to in house raffles.
The year started off quite quietly with dress down days and raffles, lulling us all into a false sense of security.
Then it was summer and everyone was busy getting wet and sunburnt, racing Viking Longboats, completing in adventure challenges, gorge walking and paying other people to take part in the gruelling Parish Walk (80+ miles in 24 hours) – some people actually enjoy it.
We rounded off the year with coffee mornings (including hot pasties – far too delicious for the waist line) and raffles galore.
During the year our team supported the following charities, raising over £2,300:-
Isle of Man Children’s Centre
BBC Children In Need
St Bridget’s Hospice
Alder Hay Childrens Hospital
