Started back in 2002, the Crazy Hats Breast Cancer Appeal is a charity that raises money for breast cancer care in Northamptonshire; the county where Walls and Floors first opened its doors, and where its headquarters are based to this day. Since starting its efforts, the charity has raised over £2,000,000 – a phenomenal amount. Every year, the charity hosts a fundraiser walk to help raise money to fight this terrible disease, and to aid support centres throughout the county.
This year, the Crazy Hats walk was hosted at Wicksteed Park in Kettering. On Easter Sunday, 2,000 women turned up in force; each donning a ‘crazy’ and sometimes hand-crafted hat. Among them was a key member of our design team; Susie Holland. Susie has been part of our team for over two years; producing fantastic creatives and coming up with engaging marketing schemes. She sported her Easter-themed nest bonnet, which was filled with faux chicks and a bunny.
Off her own back, she raised £115 in donations from friends, family and colleagues. Walls and Floors have doubled this amount to £230, to help support this fantastic cause.
Richard Greenbank, director at Walls and Floors, said: ‘We pride ourselves on supporting our staff members in their charitable causes. When we heard that Susie was raising money for such an incredible charity that has done so much for the local community, we were only too happy to double her donations. Well done to everyone who has supported Crazy Hats!’
