November Fundraising

By Sophie Hardy, 6th December, 2017

Throughout the month of November, Atlantic Shopping held a variety of staff fundraising events in an effort to raise money for Cancer Research UK, Mind, and the Movember Foundation. We are delighted to announce that we have raised a fantastic £1055!

Take a look at all the fun we had for a great cause below:

Fundraising For Charity

Atlantic Shopping Bake Off

The month kicked off with the Atlantic Shopping Bake Off! Everyone was encouraged to bring in their best bakes, from sweet to savoury, with the chance to win prizes for tastiest, best decorated, tallest, and more.

 

Cakes Baked For Charity Fundraising

 

From cupcakes and brownies to cheesecake and cookies, so much effort went in, resulting in some really impressive bakes – including a cake shaped like a bar stool!

 

Cake Day Charity Event

Movember

During the entire month, a few of our male members of staff opted to take part in Movember! This is a moustache-growing event created by the Movember Foundation – a charity that raises funds for men’s health worldwide. So, starting with a fresh clean shave on the 1st of November, our participants were sponsored to grow a moustache by the end of the month. As you can see below, they definitely did not disappoint… but why are they in fancy dress I hear you ask…

 

Moustaches Grown For Movember

Fancy Dress Day

Our fancy dress day took place on the last day of the month (possibly to give our Movember guys a chance to coordinate their moustaches with their outfits). With prizes up for grabs for best dressed, most effort, most creative, funniest, and most original, we had an amazing turnout! Including the Super Mario brothers, Mary Poppins, Where’s Wally, the Queen of Hearts, and even a Christmas elf.

A huge well done to all our staff for donating and taking part, and we will continue to have more events like this in the future – so stay tuned!
