A TEAM at a new centre for arts and culture will be raising money for a special cause next month.

Rebecca Farrow, Jodie Godliman, Tania Jones and Sara Matthews who are based at Royal Porcelain Works – which has been developed to showcase the county’s artistry and craftsmanship – will compete in a series of team building exercises on Friday 11 October to raise money for St Richard’s Hospice.

Sara Matthews, General Manager of the Bransford Trust and Royal Porcelain Works said:

“As a new team, we’ve decided to organise a team building exercise and raise funds at the same time for our local hospice who do such incredible work in our community."

“We’ll be taking part in climbing, track racing, archery, paddle boarding, kayaking and raft races against other teams.”

Ria Simons, Fundraiser at St Richard’s Hospice, said

“We are delighted that the team at Royal Porcelain Works is taking part in our activity day!"

“We hope the event will bring the team together for an enjoyable, constructive day – while raising essential funds for St Richard’s Hospice."

“From all of us here, we’d like to say a big ‘thank you’ to the Royal Porcelain Works team for supporting our care!”

Royal Porcelain Works – which is based on the old Royal Worcester factory site in Severn Street – is a vibrant new cultural development that features arts and crafts, a brand new exhibition area, a new eatery, all sitting alongside the world famous Museum of Royal Worcester.
