The iPad 2 which was donated to Zoe’s Place earlier this year has raised a tremendous £6,839 for the children’s charity!
At the annual Visualsoft eCommerce workshop and forum event in March this year, a Who Wants to be a Millionaire style competition took place, which saw the lucky winner pick up an iPad 2 courtesy of VS. The winner of the prize was one of Visualsoft’s industry partners, Skrill, who instantly made the decision to donate the prize back to Visualsoft to give to charity, and it was local babies hospice Zoe’s Place who received the gift to raise money for their charity.
The raffle was drawn last week, and the total amount raised as a result of the raffle has been confirmed at a whopping £6,839 – this amount of money will keep the hospice open for just over two full days and nights, caring for up to six children at a time.
Zoe’s Place specialises in offering palliative and respite care for babies and infants from birth to five years old. The charity receives very little Government funding, and mostly relies on the generosity of the public to help raise the £2.5 million a year they need to keep Zoë’s Place open for the many families that need our expert care and support. Visualsoft has continued to support the charity in recent years, with our Founding Director Dean, completing the Iron Man in 2011 for the cause raising £5000 in the process.
