Beyond The Box member helps at charity event, hosted by Independent Options

Actively Working Beyond The Box With The Local Community

Here at Beyond The Box we live our values both in and out of the workplace, and this week we helped local charity, Independent Options, at their annual Easter Egg Hunt!

Keeley Sawdon-Molloy, Social Media and Content Marketing Executive for Beyond The Box, assisted Independent Options at their Easter Fair on Sunday 23rd April 2017.

Independent Options is a local charity that works to empower people with disabilities, enabling individuals to enjoy life to the full.

The event took place at Independent Options’ Children and Family Centre, Hazel Grove. Both children and adults thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and there was a wonderful sense of community spirit to be witnessed on the day.

With the Easter Bunny being happy to see the sunshine, he enjoyed hopping around the adventure trail whilst hiding eggs! Participants of the Egg Hunt were equally as delighted with their prizes too, and that was not all that was offered on the day…

At the centre of the fully accessible playground a colourful balloon stall could be found, where service users were able to make their own balloon animals. Underneath a marquee, to the right of the garden, were two volunteers offering face painting and supervising some garden games. Refreshments were also available indoors, ranging from sausage rolls to homemade cakes, all of which were delicious.

Lucy Sawdon-Molloy, Independent Options’ Fundraising and Marketing Manager, said: ‘’The Easter Egg Hunt is one of our favourite events, and we are incredibly grateful for the kind donation and support that Beyond The Box were able to provide.’’

A grand total of £1,246.53 was raised at the fair, helping Independent Options to continue to support and empower people with disabilities. Beyond The Box are extremely proud to have been able to play an active role in ensuring the success of the day, and are looking forward to future events.
