Amazing Work-Thank You Barclays

We have recently received a very welcomed visit from staff working at Barclays, Partner Finance, Cardiff. They called to present a cheque to the Sparkle Appeal, for the magnificent sum of £80334.13. In 2015 Barclays employee Jeanette Cochrane approached her managers requesting they choose Sparkle as their charity of the year for 2016. Jeanette has a son who has previously used Serennu Childrens Centre and she told us she is grateful for the support her family received at that time. Jeanette delivered an emotional and passionate presentation to her managers and team, and it was a unanimous decision that they agreed to support Sparkle with their fundraising efforts. They set about doing many different events, including a Thames Path Challenge, weekly bucket collections, many, many, many cake sales and also a very popular curry luncheon. Through their £4£ scheme, Barclays Bank often agreed to match individual fundraising efforts and this helped double the value of the money raised for that particular activity. We would like to say a massive thank you to Jeanette for nominating Sparkle to her team, and another massive thank you to all the staff at Barclays, Partner Finance, Cardiff, for this generous donation and for the continued support they have offered.
