Win a trip to Dubai

by Foundation of Light

Set off this summer with Hays Faraway.

One lucky visitor at this month’s Fashion Strikes event will be leaving on cloud nine, thanks to holiday company Hays Faraway.

The Sunderland-based travel specialist, who offers affordable breaks to luxurious destinations around the world, has donated an amazing trip to Dubai to be given away at the fundraising event on Monday, November 25.

The trip, which includes five nights at the four star Radisson Blu Downtown Hotel, as well as return Emirates flights from Newcastle and airport transfers, will be auctioned off along with a host of other top prizes, with all proceeds going directly to the Foundation of Light.

Hayley Myers, Head of Longhaul for Hays Faraway said:  “The Foundation of Light is a very worthy cause and one which we are proud to support with this trip to Dubai.”

The Foundation of Light, the official charity of SAFC, benefits more the 42,000 young people and families every year, thanks to a host of sport and education-based programmes running throughout the North East. 

Fashion Strikes, which includes a series of fashion shows, live entertainment and a three course dinner, is one of the charity’s most popular annual events and organisers are hoping 2013 will prove to be a particularly fruitful year.

Phil King, Head of Commercial at the Foundation of Light, said:  “Thanks to partners like Hays Faraway we’ve got a wide range of amazing prizes up for grabs in our Fashion Strikes auction this year and I hope guests will bid generously to secure these experiences and boost the Foundation at the same time.”
