Strata Fundraiser Sets Butterfly’s A Flutter
Strata, the private home builder with developments throughout Yorkshire and the East Midlands, has raised more than £54,000 for Danielle’s Flutterbyes, thanks to the Strata Ball, a much-loved event in the company’s annual calendar of charitable activities.
The Strata Ball, which hosted 680 guests, was attended by team members, their families, friends and individuals from the company’s supply chain partners. Trustees from Danielle’s Flutterbyes, Strata’s chosen charity of the year, also joined the glamorous, yet emotional evening alongside customers from across Strata’s developments.
Strata’s Charity and Events Manager, Leonie Weaver comments: “We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone that joined us for what was a very special event.
“Whilst the evening was hugely uplifting, it was also very emotional as we were all reminded just how important it is to support Danielle’s Flutterbyes, a wonderful charity which helps young people suffering from kidney disease.”
Sarah Taylor, alongside her mum Ruth Braddock and family friend Fiona Forgham, set up Nottingham based Danielle’s Flutterbyes in memory of her sister Danielle, who the charity is named after, and who sadly lost her battle against kidney disease in 2014.
Ruth, Danielle’s mum, who took to the stage during the Strata ball to share her emotional story, comments: “Yet again, I am truly overwhelmed by Strata’s support. Coming face-to-face with over 600 people who had all come together to raise money for our charity is humbling. The difference that these funds will make is immeasurable and I really cannot thank everyone enough.”
Danielle’s Flutterbyes aims to help young people suffering from the disease by funding activities, holidays, days out and equipment to make life easier while they’re receiving treatment.
The Strata Ball is just one of many annual events hosted by the company to raise valuable funds for Danielle’s Flutterbyes, Strata’s 2017 chosen charity of the year.
