Employees from Warrington, UK-based engineering solutions provider, Boulting Group have pushed their bodies to the limit and completed a variety of gruelling feats of endurance in a bid to raise money for cancer centre The Christie.
Staff from Boulting Group have dug deep and raised a staggering £14,683.31 for the company’s chosen charity.
Based in Manchester, The Christie is the largest single-site cancer centre in Europe, treating more than 44,000 patients a year.
The money raised will help fund the important work and support the facilities provided for cancer patients and their families.
Located in Warrington, with additional sites across the UK, Boulting Group is a multi-disciplined engineering solutions provider, operating in a diverse range of industry sectors in the UK and internationally.
“Cancer is one of the few remaining human diseases that scientists are yet to cure. Recent breakthroughs in stem cell research in particular means that we are closer than ever to overcoming cancer,” said Josh Groarke, deputy group managing director at Boulting Group, “This is why we’re proud of the determination of our staff and it means that, this year, we have presented The Christie with our biggest charitable donation to date.”
“Special thanks are made to Dave Jackson, Billy Ramsay, Matt Hemsworth and Kevin O’Hara who took part in a 60-mile Manchester to Blackpool bike ride; Victoria McWhirter for competing in her first Pretty Muddy event; and Sam Blair for another Tough Mudder entry.”
Danielle Carney, Corporate Fundraising Manager at The Christie said: “It has been an absolute pleasure being in partnership with Boulting Group over the past year. It has gone over and above to raise an incredible amount of money and we really appreciate its dedication and efforts.”
Staff who did not fancy getting muddy participated in a number of additional fundraising events throughout the year, including Boulting’s inaugural Summer Ball, which took place at the Principal Hotel in Manchester raising £7,400 as well as Easter and summer raffles and various dress-down days.
