The dragons are in the building. Definitely not the fire-breathing kind though, honest!
The Entyce team are proud to be taking part in ‘Dragon’s Lair’, a high school fundraising initiative on behalf of our nominated charity, Hope House.
Hope House offers support to local families with either terminally ill children, or those whose child has died, ensuring that no one faces the death of their child alone.
Alongside other businesses, Jane, Libby, Emma and Hannah are each part of a panel of ‘dragons’ that visit participating local schools to hear pitches presented by year 10 students about why their fundraising idea should receive investment. Last week, Jane and Libby headed along to St Joseph’s Catholic and Anglican High School in Wrexham and Emma and Hannah will join the panel at Darland High School in Rossett at the end of January.
Jane Entwistle, dragon and Founder and Co-Director at Entyce says:
“From pony selfies to waffle making and even a FIFA competition, we certainly heard a variety of fundraising ideas in the ‘Lair’! It was wonderful to see the students working so hard on their pitches and delivering them so confidently, especially as it was the first time that most of them had presented to anyone. Libby and I loved playing the part of ‘dragons’ and if the students we saw are anything to go by, then the future is looking very positive!”
Entyce has a long history of supporting Hope House with fundraising initiatives. Last year, the team took part in a collective marathon to support the charity’s ‘Final Moments Matter’ campaign, raising over £800, double our £400 initial target. We also regularly participate in numerous running events to support Hope House, including the Chester 10K in 2023, raising over £1,000.
