Every year at Christmas Marie Edwards, AGM Services Business Operations Manager organises for a collection from the staff who would rather make monetary donations rather than sending Christmas Cards between each other. In addition to this Junair Spraybooths receive gifts from their suppliers to thank them for their business. It was decided, twelve years ago by the staff at Junair that instead of dividing the gifts out they would like to put them to good use. After much thought it was agreed that the gifts would be raffled off on the last trading day of the year and each year the money raised would be donated to a local charity. Junair’s Sales Office Manager, Elaine Butler volunteered to facilitate the event and to add to the fun Fiona Bradshaw, AGM’s Operations Administrator and Elaine dressed up in fancy dress to sell the tickets. To enhance the prizes, AGM Services, Junair Spraybooths and Workshop Solutions Directors also donate generous prizes. Prizes this year ranged from superb hampers of Champagne, chocolates, christmas cakes and puddings, an IPod docking station and bottles of whiskey, wine and tins and boxes of sweets. The total amount raised from the two ventures this year were £500 and will be donated to Springhill Hospice in Rochdale.
