Ladies Night

Pranasha 1 held a ladies night on the 8th of June 2012. Good food and live entertainment was enjoyed by all and a sum of £582 was raised.

It was great to have so much support, raising money for a great cause thank you all.


Some times an idea which you think is a good way to raise funds takes on a life of its own.  This is what happened with our Jubilee dress down day – when we asked people to dress is red, white or blue we never expected Richard, our regional sales manager who spends a lot of time on the road, to go as far as decorating his car.

That was an easy and fun way to raise £63 for a great cause!!

Murderously Good Fun!

Heads turned and eyebrows raised in The Scotsbridge Mill last week, as more and more people seemed to be strolling up to the bar dressed like Victorians. Murmurs echoed in all areas of the pub and curiosity grew.

Then one of them dropped down dead – “Murder!” was the cry!

What followed was an action-packed, fun-filled evening of murder, mystery, intrigue and surprises as the guests, aided by the hapless police officers, tried to figure out who the dastardly villain was!

Was it the cunning, slightly over-familiar butler? One of the plethora of jilted lovers? And who is that slightly creepy man in the top hat?!

We obviously can’t tell you that now – but  pictures of the night kindly provided by Real Imprint photography are available on our Facebook page


Thanks to all that took part, Real Imprint Photography and the Scotsbridge Mill, Rickmansworth. The event raised a total of £160 for Cancer Research UK  Relay for Life Harrow!

The simple things!

What is a fundraiser?

It’s easy to think of “fundraisers” as big lavish events designed to reap hundreds and thousands of pounds. But it doesn’t have to be! A fundraiser is something that makes money for our cause. It can be huge or a small, simple thing.

Team Beko held a fundraiser last week. They placed a cake in the office kitchen with a sign asking people to make a donation and enjoy the cake. Big? Lavish? Time consuming? No to all of the above. But for the sake of a couple of eggs and cup full of flour, we received £15. 100% profit. How simple is that?! Literally a piece of cake!

We’re in the process of something incredibly special: we’re coming together as a community to beat cancer. Yes we need the gala evenings, big-ticket raffles and grand gestures. But we ask no more of any one individual than they can manage; and sometimes many small steps are better than 1 big one.


Your committee is always happy to help brainstorm ideas for your fundraising efforts. Please get in touch if we can be any assistance to you at all!
