20th August 2021
This event not only allows the entire business to come together to celebrate summer and relax, but more importantly, it allows us to organise and participate in a company-wide charity raffle, raising money for an incredible cause, Beacon Hill Academy. In the 2020/2021 year so far, we have raised over £4,000 for the charity, and we continue to find new ways to raise as much well-deserved funds as possible.
Our aim across the Traders Division is to continue to fundraise for those charities who are in most need of help, as we have been doing for a number of years now. It was a mission of ours to start to raise money and increase awareness for our more local charities as opposed to the national charities which receive a lot of media coverage.
With this in mind, our chosen charity for the year 2020/21 is Beacon Hill Academy.
For those who have never heard of Beacon Hill Academy… they are a special academy based in Thurrock for students between the ages of 2 to 19, who have severe and complex learning difficulties. For the last four years in a row, they have been judged as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted and described as “an inspirational learning community” which proves what an amazing establishment they are. Their motto? .... "achievement has no boundaries"
Beacon Hill is a place where:
· Pupils will receive an education that is bespoke for their individual needs.
· Each pupil can achieve their own goals, tailored to their uniqueness.
· Learning is continuous for all.
There is a range of rich opportunities to develop pupils' strengths and to equip them for adult life.
There is no limit to our expectations; students will be empowered so they feel that nothing can hold them back.

To make our raffle possible, we have received extremely generous prize donations from some of our suppliers including Eclisse, M Marcus and Burg Watcher, as well as external local companies from BounceFit to Woburn Safari Park and many more.
On behalf of everyone here at IronmongeryDirect, we want to thank everyone involved in donating these great prizes to us!
