Audio branding specialist PHMG are firmly on course to hit its fundraising goal for 2017 having raised over £28,000 for charity.
Staff at the Manchester-based firm have been organising and taking part in a wide range of events to help smash their colossal end-of-year target of £50,000.
Taking place under the company’s official charity, PHMG Foundation, recent activities have included a marathon and the Christie Tower Run, a race up 46 floors at Manchester’s Beetham Tower.
A moonlight Mount Snowdon climb, triathlon and a six peak challenge are just some of the events planned by staff in the upcoming weeks.
“Raising £50,000 is an ambitious target but we believe our employees’ dedication and enthusiasm will help us achieve this goal,” said Chris Berisford, PHMG Foundation Trustee. “If anything, the mammoth target has made staff more determined as they are constantly coming up with ideas for more unusual and remarkable events throughout 2017.”
As with previous years, the company has offered to match the donation if the target is met by staff.
PHMG has taken part in more than 150 events in the last four years to raise more than £150,000 for almost 50 different charitable organisations.
Donations in 2017 will go to charities around the globe, including the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, Elmy’s Special Society, St Clare Hospice and Toronto Human Society.
Following the tragedy of the Manchester terrorist attack, staff from all offices also raised £32,582 for the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund.
