Money Money Money, we raised some Money

On Saturday 21st July 2018, Expect celebrated our 30th Anniversary at The Arches Venue in Halifax with our employees, suppliers and customers.

The evening was a 70’s inspired event with the fabulous ABBA Tribute Band, Arrival UK, performing greatest hits from the iconic group. The evening ended with a 70’s Disco Band.

We had two surprise guests who joined us on the evening, Gordon Ramsay and Ricky Gervais (lookalikes), they entertained our guests throughout the night.

Throughout the evening we had two fundraising raffles to support one of our colleagues whose son was born with Cystic Fibrosis and needs treatment that the NHS do not provide. We raised an amazing £2,386 for little Harry and this money will go towards their target of £8,000.

His father expressed his gratitude “I can’t thank Expect enough for all they have done! The money raised wouldn’t of been achievable without everyone’s help. My family and I are extremely grateful to everyone who has supported us”

We also raised a fantastic total of £2,000 for our chosen charity the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice. We have supported the hospice for over 4 years and are proud of the work they do in the West Yorkshire area to help children and families with life-limiting illnesses.

Overall the evening was a huge success and Event Organiser Jess Bailey commented “The evening was fantastic. A great event to celebrate Expect turning 30!

The grand total raised on the night was £4,386. This is a superb figure and will help both causes. Big thank you everyone who donated!

We have had so much positive feedback from our guests on how much they enjoyed themselves and it was great to see so many of them in their 70’s outfits! We cannot thank the venue, acts and staff enough for their help to make the evening a memorable one!”
