Nutcracker Design and Marketing does it again for charity and joins forces with C7 Contractors to help Compton Hospice ‘raise the roof’.
In the past Nutcracker have been involved in numerous fundraising projects in support of local charities. However nothing in those earlier projects could have prepared us for our latest venture.
Nutcracker were approached by Justin Thomas of C7 Contractors, one of the Midlands premier painting, decorating and minor repairs companies based in Bilston, to design and produce a calendar in memory of Ron Harrison a former employee who died in August this year of cancer.
The idea to create a calendar came from amongst Ron’s colleagues, however this was to be no ordinary calendar!
The guys at C7 Contractors decided that they wanted to participate in creating a ‘naked calendar’ in memory of Ron as they believed that this would create a smile from up ‘above’ whilst also contributing to raising funds for Compton Hospice, a charity close to the hearts of Ron and his family. It has been said that ‘given the opportunity, Ron would have posed for every page’.
Nutcracker gave both time and resources to help C7 Contractors achieve their goals and ultimately raise funds in Ron’s memory. The team at Nutcracker worked collectively on the design and production of the calendar and managed the photography within it, their efforts coupled with the enthusiasm of C7 Contractors, is sure to make it a prosperous success.
Special recognition was given to Nutcracker and other contributors for their ‘dedication and commitment to helping others in such difficult economic times’.
The calendar has been created as a means of helping Compton Hospice ‘raise the roof’. Calendars go on sale for £10, of which £8 goes to Compton Hospice.
C7 and Ron’s family gave further personal thanks and praise to Nutcrackers ‘Graham, Rob, Stew, Dave and Neil for creating the calendar, despite the ‘best efforts of Justin’.
This year Compton Hospice needs to raise over £6 million. From every £1 donated to the hospice, 86p goes directly to patient care. By purchasing this calendar, you will help Compton Hospice to support people with life limiting illnesses and to provide the very best in palliative care in the memory of Ron Harrison.
In the past Nutcracker have supported various charitable causes, including the county air ambulance, Compton Hospice, Cancer Research, Wolverhampton MS Society and Guide Dogs for the Blind and greatly enjoyed this latest fundraising experience.
