Board24 have successfully raised money for charity over many years in all sorts of different events and challenges. In July 2018, W&R Barnett Limited formalised a charity matching scheme, opening it to the employees of all the companies within the wider W&R Barnett Group.
The Logson Group have become the most prolific applicants for charity matching. The group are placed at the top of the table for the most completed applications.
Over the last 12 months, Board24 have raised money for various cancer and heart/stroke charities and with the matched funds we have raised a total of £3,358.56. This fantastic effort is just the beginning, there are another four charitable events scheduled to take place this year and we are looking forward to raising more.
Our latest event was set up by several employees of Board24 Coalville, who arranged a Charity Quiz night on the 11th May at Hugglescote Social Club in aid of Prostate Cancer.
The group, who call themselves ‘Tortoises and the Hares’ are a group of 11 men (7 of which work for Board24) and are a mixture of ages. They have been raising money for Prostate Cancer since last year, raising around £2,500 so far. They are hoping to triple this amount this year, with more events planned and with the help of W&R Barnett’s charity matching scheme.
As a group they have all been affected by Prostate Cancer in some way or another and are all committed to raising money for this very worthy cause. Phil Slater, a FLT Driver for Board24 is one of the founders of the group, he says “The group was originally formed by people wanting to support each other and the cause. We’re all really supportive of each other, which is the key element in our fund raising campaign.”
A team within the Board24 office were the triumphant winners of the charity quiz night, calling themselves ‘GLADA’ after using the first initials of everyone in the team. They went home with tickets to the Chesney Hawkes concert in Cattow’s Farm later this year.
A fantastic grand total of £750 was raised during the evening of the quiz event. This is just the beginning for this team who are looking to raise thousands of pounds for Prostate Cancer this year. The next charity events planned are a family gym day and then a charity bike ride in London.
You are still able to donate towards this worthy cause.
