Staff at a new homes developer baked cakes and held a raffle to raise more than £2,500 for the charity Sense.

Teams at Fairview New Homes’ head office in Lancaster Road, Enfield, and at the company’s development site in Colindale raised a total of £2,567 for the charity, which supports deafblind people across the country.

Sense was chosen as the beneficiary for Fairview’s annual Christmas raffle, and staff bought strips of raffle tickets to win prizes including luxury hampers and boxes of chocolates.

Members of the Fairview team also baked cakes which were sold to colleagues at Enfield and Colindale to raise further funds.

Jim Holliday, Sales and Marketing Director for Fairview, said: “The annual Christmas raffle is a fixture in the calendar of our staff, and last year we chose Sense as the worthy cause which would benefit from our fundraising.

“We are pleased to be able to hand over the funds raised in the raffle and from the cake sales to support the important work they do.”

The team at Sense work all year round to support people who are deafblind, have sensory impairments or complex needs to lead more independent lives.

Lydia Clark, community fundraising manager for Sense, said: “Fundraising makes a huge difference to us in supporting our work, which includes hiring specialist teachers and offering holidays and short breaks for our clients.

“The money raised by Fairview will be spent specifically on the Hadley Family Centre in Barnet, our purpose-designed family centre made homely and accessible for children and young people.”

“We would like to thank the team at Fairview for their kind donation, which will help us to continue delivering our services to those who need our support.”
