Framework "Best in Show"
Staff from Framework’s Russell House(an emergency accommodation service based in Newark) and fundraising team embraced the changeable weather at the 2014 Nottinghamshire Show last weekend.
The team worked hard to engage with the hundreds of visitors, raise a few pounds and raise awareness about our work in the community. Their efforts did not go unnoticed as Framework scooped first prize for the best non selling trade stall.
Sarah Cross, of Framework's fundraising team said:
It was so exciting to win the prize! We were really here to just spread the word about the work we do locally and talk to local people about how they can help. Some people already knew us, but plenty were new to us. Everyone we spoke to really engaged with our work and the issue of homelessness - it's good to know that there is such strong support out there. Now we just need to work out what to do with our trophy.
The team have since drawn the Framework raffle and will be announcing the winner of the children's colouring competition once all entries have been received. They will be out and about at more events in the coming months, the closest being the Lincolnshire show where the hope is that another prize is on the cards.
