The raffle took place in memory of Sam Chapman from the company’s sales team, who sadly passed away at work last summer. Sam suffered from a Pulmonary Embolism (PE) and Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), which caused Venous Thromboembolism (VTE).

The company secured hundreds of prize donations from its generous staff, local businesses and its own clients and partners. These included items such as champagne, a Fortnum and Mason hamper, music event tickets, restaurant vouchers, experience days, an iPad, speakers and more.

Lee Biggins, founder and managing director of CV-Library, comments: “I’m so proud of how much we’ve been able to raise for this very worthy cause. The team did a great job at organising the event and securing some truly amazing prizes. As a business, we’re passionate about giving back, especially to charities like this, which are extremely close to home.”

The raffle was organised by Sam’s daughter, Abi Chapman, who works within CV-Library’s marketing department. £3,050 was raised through raffle ticket purchases alone, with Biggins contributing a further £850 from the business.

Thrombosis UK’s mission is for everyone to know the risks, signs and symptoms of VTE and to support research to extend understanding into the prevention and best management of it.
