Basepoint Ipswich and Round Table

Basepoint Ipswich decided to start supporting Age UK Suffolk as our centre charity this year due to the outstanding work they do for the elderly within the local community.basepoint ipswich

After learning that the Ipswich Round Table were raising funds for Age UK Suffolk with the Rudolph Run this year we were only too happy to take part and help out. The Rudolph Run has become such a recognisable and widely supported event in the local community that we knew not only would we have a brilliant time, but we would be able to raise a fantastic amount for the charity at the same time.

Taking part on the night was amazing, the support of the public and the fact we could bring a bit of joy and excitement to the children in the local area made for a great atmosphere, and people’s generosity was just astounding.

The amount raised on the night was match funded by our parent company The Act Foundation, which meant we were able to present Age UK Suffolk with a cheque for £6,000, which will aid the charity in carrying on with its invaluable work.

Ipswich Round Table Chairman Craig Sennett’s Notes

We are delighted that a member of ours put us in touch with Basepoint Ipswich and just how professional and easy they were to deal with.  They have matched the £3,000 which they helped to raise meaning the total from Basepoint and our combined endeavours was £6000 – a fantastic result.  The total raised for Rudolph 2015 stands at £20,500 for Age UK Suffolk which is simply stunning and it will do some great work.

Our Chairman Craig Sennett is stunned by how much we have raised.  The hard work of many people have led to us all delivering such a great result.
