Anthony Gold Sponsors Bermondsey Street Festival
On Saturday 16 September 2017 Anthony Gold was privileged to be one of the local businesses sponsoring the Bermondsey Street Festival.
As a South London based firm it is important to us that we support the local community and charities in the area. It was our pleasure to be able to sponsor the Bermondsey Street Festival for the second time and this year to be able to offer an adjoining stall to Prostate Cancer UK, a charity whose offices occupy a floor above our London Bridge office at The Counting House.
On the day we had a great location on the main bustling street which gave us the opportunity to meet a number of local residents, businesses and causes, as well as people who had travelled from further afield to enjoy all that the festival has to offer.
We also teamed up with Prostate Cancer UK to host a raffle with a number of tempting prizes provided by Anthony Gold, raising a total of £361 on the day which was matched by the firm to give a total of £722 to this very worthwhile charity.
There were several volunteers from Prostate Cancer UK who provided the opportunity to learn more about the important work they do in raising awareness of the signs of prostate cancer and supporting those who have been diagnosed. We were inspired to know that the money being raised was going to support such crucial work.
Many members of staff from Anthony Gold took part in the day, selling raffle tickets, and handing out a range of Anthony Gold treats to passers-by, including cloth bags filled with pens, jelly babies, balloons and key rings for the young (and young at heart!) There were also Anthony Gold beanies, which provided welcome warmth for those on the stall throughout the day.
The festival is a brilliant day out with family and friends and a great opportunity for local businesses and residents to get to know each other better. There is also a wide range of entertainment on offer, not to mention the abundance of delicious locally sourced food and drinks!
There was a great sense of community on the day and we hope to be able to continue to support the Bermondsey Street Festival in future years.
