A Big ‘Thank you!’ From Barnardos Australia
THANK YOU TO ALL THE MEMBERS AT CRUNCH
THAT SO GENEROUSLY DONATED GIFTS & MONEY TO THE
CHILDREN CARED FOR BY BARNARDOS
Barnardos was our charity of choice in 2015 and we have decided to continue working with this amazing organisation in 2016. Thank you to everybody that has trialled Crunch recently for 10 days for $10, all of which was donated to Barnardos. We have now raised in excess of $3000, which will help towards the care of some of the vulnerable children within Australia.
The staff at Crunch were also blown away by the kindness and generosity of our members when we decided to do a Christmas gift drive for the Barnardos Kids. After speaking to our contact, we were asked if we could focus our drive on gifts for newborns to 2 years and also the 12+ children, who often miss out on gift donations.
Before dropping off the gifts, we made a display in reception for you all to see, which included the most beautiful baby clothes, toys, make-up and beauty products, books and cuddly toys. We also collected close to $400 in cash, which we converted into an assortment of gift cards.
The team at Barnardos wrote us all a letter of thanks, from which I have cut and pasted a small excerpt:
To the Crunch Fitness team,
Happy New Year to you! I just wanted to shoot you an email to say thanks again for your donation to Barnardos Gifts for Kids.
My lovely volunteers (aka elves) have counted the amount of toys donated and I’m happy to report that we received a total of 150 physical gifts = $3000 (approx. $20 each) + 13 Gift Cards = $260, GRAND TOTAL = $3260 from Crunch Fitness.
It has been really great working with you and ensuring children in Barnardos Australia received a gift on Christmas Day.
Thanks again for your wonderful support!
The Staff at Crunch
