£25k for 25 years!
Staff at Arena Group have raised an impressive £10,736.52 in aid of East Lancashire Hospice!
In honour of the business turning 25 in 2016, Arena Group set its sights on raising a huge £25,000 for charity over the course of 12 months. The group who specialise in hard copy and electronic document management, asked their employees to vote for their favoured charity and their regional offices chose Wakefield Hospice, East Lancashire Hospice, and Rotherham Hospice to equally benefit from any funds raised.
Their fundraising efforts have been varied and wide-ranging and include brave employees doing a skydive at an altitude of 15,000 ft, an intrepid bunch completing the tough mudder course, family fun days and various raffles. Their employees also went without some of their regular perks, including their regular bottle of champagne at Christmas, the cost of an employee trophy and a team meal out. Two employees even opted to have their heads shaved and another to be waxed for the cause!
The cheque was handed over to hospice Fundraising Manager Sharon Crymble by Aidrian Fitzpatrick, Arena Group MD. Sharon said “We are so grateful to all at Arena Group for the time and dedication they have shown. Their energy and enthusiasm has been incredible. The money raised will make such a difference to our patients and their families.”
