Delighted to confirm that we have raised £5,050 for the British Heart Foundation from a series of fundraising activities which our staff undertook during 2015.
Our Director, Daman Ranby, not only completed the Three Peaks Challenge but also cycled between the three peaks: Ben Nevis, Scotland, Scafell Pike, England and Snowdon, Wales. He started with the climb up Ben Nevis – around 10,000 feet – then cycled from Scotland through England to climb Scafell Pike and then on to Snowdon, covering 500 miles and completing the challenge in an amazing three days, raising £2,000 in the process.
Other fundraising activities included taking part in the gruelling Hucknall Sprint Triathlon, the Manchester 10K run and British Heart Foundation’s “Wear it Red” Day as well as filling “Bag It, Beat It” charity bags.
David Stevenson, our Managing Director said: “As a company we are committed to making a positive contribution to the community and our staff are always keen to take part in funding raising activities to raise money for our chosen charity of the year. We ask staff to nominate a charity and at the beginning of 2015 a member of the team nominated the British Heart Foundation as a close family member has a heart condition.”
Helena Mair from the British Heart Foundation said: ” We would like to thank all the staff at Edmond Shipway for supporting the British Heart Foundation over the past year and joining in the fight for every heartbeat. This is a tremendous amount of money and will help to support our work here in the community. Without supporters like Edmond Shipway we would not be able to continue our important work.”
