Anyone who was lucky enough to get their hands on a ticket to last years' summer party will be thrilled to know that it is time for round two! After the success of last years’ event KJ Fire Safety’s management have now given the go ahead for a 2020 summer party. It will be hosted at a local venue this year sometime in June. The staff are hoping for an even bigger party this year in a bid that it will become a tradition for those in the local community.
The original summer party held in 2019 was hosted to raise money for Derian House Children’s Hospice. As part of a £50 corporate fundraising challenge KJ Fire Safety was able to raise over £1700 for the charity. Little did we know that it would be such a success! This year there was a unanimous vote by the staff to go even bigger for their second summer party.
Over 60 people attended the first event at the upstairs area in Fat Bird in Wigan town centre. Ticket sales reached their maximum for the event a week before it was held and the feedback that was given was all positive. The ticketed event included multiple local music acts who volunteered their time. There was also a raffle that took place including various prizes such as discounts for cruises, dinner and drinks at The Ivy in Manchester, free hair dressing vouchers, tickets for Junkyard Golf and many more. The raffle tickets were sold on the night and all prizes were donated from local businesses as well as friends and family.
The second year’s event is anticipated to be even bigger to carry on its previous success. This event will again be held with the goal of raising money for Derian House Children’s Hospice. This charity provides respite and end of life care to children, young people up to the age of 26 and their families and is based in the North West of England. We believe that it is important for young people to create happy memories no matter how short their lives may be and that is what this charity provides.
This years summer party will be over 18s only, and everyone is welcome.
