Staff members from a local business donned red noses and clown outfits to help raise funds for the Headlands School Rock Challenge project.
A team from Lloyd Dowson, (Chartered Accountants and Tax and Business Advisors) who have offices in Bridlington and Scarborough, took part in a circuit organised by Steve Tighe from Blast Fitness to help raise funds for Headlands School Rock Challenge project.
This year the Rock Challenge production is based on the ‘Circus’ so the circuit was organised around this theme. Lloyd Dowson team members took part in several activities such as balancing beams and juggling.
Those who took part were sponsored for successfully completing the circuit. This was combined with staff donations and a total of £1000 was raised from the event.
Cathyrn Morgan, Head of Performing Arts at Headlands, commented: “ We are hugely grateful to Lloyd Dowson for their fundraising support for our Rock Challenge entry and we are delighted they have taken on our ‘circus’ theme and used it to characterise the event.
“Rock Challenge is a national dance/drama competition which allows pupils to experience performing on a big stage with lighting and costumes in front of large audiences. It is only with the help of local businesses and organisations that we can fund the project each year and represent our town at a regional level.”explained Cathryn.
Vanessa Rowbottom, Marketing Manager at Lloyd Dowson said: “We wanted to be able to support the young people at Headlands School, as those taking part in this project will have the opportunity to develop their teamwork and performance skills whilst raising their self esteem. We are extremely grateful to Steve from Blast Fitness for organising this for us.”
Blast Fitness owner Steve Tighe said: “It was really enjoyable to work with the team from Lloyd Dowson and support their fundraising efforts.”
