As part of our ongoing charity fundraising activities, our Bury office has staged a fun sports day which has so far raised over £600 for Bury Hospice.
We invited clients and fellow members of the local business community to our office on Waterfold Business Park who participated in a range of events including static cycling, crazy golf and ‘Bury bin ball’ which involves 20 ping pong balls and a bin.
Helen Clayton – Partner and Head of PM+M’s Bury office – will be raising even more money for the Hospice later this year when she takes part in two half marathons and the Bury 10k.
Under Helen’s direction the team was also involved in the recent Bury Hospice Young Business Innovation Team Challenge. The “Apprentice” style challenge saw Philips High School, Unsworth Academy and Bury College take part. Helen mentored the Bury College team who designed an escape room as their business idea which raised over £500 and won the award for the best video.
The firm was also a co-sponsor at the Bury Hospice Sportsman’s Dinner which was staged at The Stables in Bury on March 11th. The night raised an incredible £21,000.
Helen Clayton said: “Bury Hospice provides a vital service to the local community, and is part of the region’s fabric, so we are delighted to be helping raise as much money as possible. We hope we are making a small difference and we look forward to partnering with the Hospice on future fundraisers.”
Alison Holland – Corporate Fundraiser at Bury Hospice – added: “Helen and the team have done a huge amount for the Hospice this year, so we’d like to thank them for all their ideas and efforts. Partnering with local businesses is an essential part of our fundraising operations and helps us provide the specialist care and support our patients and their families need.”
