A Peterborough recruitment company gave a well above par performance when they broke their fundraising record on a golf day for Magpas.
Peterborough based recruitment specialists, The One Group, visited the Magpas Operations Base yesterday to present £50,000 to the charity.
The One Group have broken their all-time annual fundraising target, by raising over £12,000 in their eighth annual corporate Lifesavers Golf Day where, almost one hundred business representatives gathered at John O’ Gaunt Golf Club in Sandy.
They had raised £38,000 for the charity in previous events.
Managing Director Tristan Drane and his team always make sure the costs from the golf days are covered, so that all money donated goes directly to Magpas.
Tristan and his colleague Sam Price came to present their cheque to the Magpas team today and Tristan said: “We are honoured to have managed to support Magpas over the last eight years, to watch the organisation grow, gain well deserved recognition - and know that even more people have been treated with crucial care in the Eastern Region.”
Head of Communications at Magpas, Antonia Brickell, added: “the One Group team have been and continue to be outstanding supporters and loyal fundraisers. To raise over £12,000 in one day alone is, I think you’ll agree, very impressive work!
“We feel privileged to be their chosen charity and are extremely grateful for the £50,000 Tristan and his staff have raised for us over the years. The money donated will help Magpas continue to bring lifesaving care by land and by air, to patients in life threatening situations, in the East of England and beyond.”
