On Wednesday 24th June 2020, Riverside staff held an Armed Forces Day.
As a veteran friendly practice and having signed the Armed Forces Covenant, we proudly support those who serve and wanted to raise money for Armed Forces charities. Staff wore Red, White and Blue for the occasion and brought in scrumptious cakes to eat!
We also held other activities such as ‘Guess the weight of the fruit cake’ and ‘Name the Bear’. Introducing our Riverside Mascot: Dotty.
In total, we raised a fantastic £188.42 which will all be donated to Scotty’s Little Soldiers – a National charity dedicated to supporting children and young people who have sadly lost a parent who served in the British Armed Forces. If you would like to make a donation yourself or to learn more about their work, then please visit their website: www.scottyslittlesoldiers.co.uk
A big thank you to Riverside staff who took the time to bake cakes for the event!
