We are absolutely delighted to announce that we have raised £56,123 for local charities to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Foxley Kingham.
The Foxley Kingham Anniversary Foundation has organised over 20 fundraising events, from skydiving and football matches to pamper nights and bake sales. Our efforts culminated in a closing event at Putteridge Bury on 14th March where we were honoured to be joined by all our charity partners. It was a privilege to hear from Sarah Grimes from Autism Bedfordshire and Hazel Mellon from Tokko as they outlined the impact that our fundraising will have on our local community. We also enjoyed speeches from founder partner John Kingham and members of the Foxley Kingham team who were heavily involved in the fundraising.
Paul Bithrey, director at Foxley Kingham, said: “When we embarked on our challenge to mark our 50th Anniversary by raising £50,000 for local charities, we couldn’t have anticipated how committed our employees and clients would be to helping us reach this goal. They have thrown themselves into many, many adventures over the year to give back to our local community. We are forever grateful to our supportive clients and employees, to their family and friends for their dedication and contributions. It really has been a very happy 50th birthday year.”
The success of the Foxley Kingham Anniversary Foundation has inspired us to continue our fundraising, albeit in a slightly different form. The firm has decided to select a theme each year and raise money for associated local charities. Following on from a stirring speech from Daniel Douglas from Luton Town Football Club Community Trust, we are pleased to announce that ‘Youth Engagement’ will be our theme for 2019. Selected charities will be announced in May.
Once again, we would like to thank all of our clients, our friends, and families for supporting the Anniversary Foundation. We can think of no better way to celebrate 50 years of Foxley Kingham than to help our community in this way.
