Festive Fundraising kick starts new Charity Partner
We’ve been getting festive in the office to help kick start our fundraising for our new Charity Partners of 2017 ‘British Heart Foundation’. 

We are delighted to announce our Charity partner for 2017 as British Heart Foundation. The charity was chosen by a staff vote by our team last week.

Once our annual charity partner is selected the first event we hold to raise money for them is our Christmas Jumper day. The team at Head Office in Mansfield came to work in their most festive knits and are taking part in a Christmas Raffle throughout the whole of next week to help raise those much needed funds.

The winners of the Best Christmas Jumper Competition can be seen here, well done to Charlotte Hawkins and Mark Wilson.

British Heart Foundation are the UK’s number one heart charity and through 50 years of funding cutting edge research have already made a big difference to people’s lives.

Money raised within the East Midlands region helps to save local lives, and is helping in our fight against heart disease. In the UK there are over 30,000 cardiac arrests a year outside of hospital where the emergency services attempt to resuscitate the victim – less than one in ten survive.

We are really looking forward to working with the fundraising team at BHF and hopefully eclipsing our target of £10k for 2017.
