My Home Move raises £100,000 for charity, with the help of the industryFebruary 16, 2018
- My Home Move raises £100,000 for homeless charities across the UK, thanks to donations by the industry
- Employees nominate Kidney Care UK for additional donation
- £28,000 has been raised in 2017 alone, with over £12,000 donated by industry partners.
My Home Move has surpassed the £100,000 mark for charitable donations, following a record-breaking year of fundraising in 2017. £28,000 was raised last year, through events such as the annual employee trek, a marathon bike ride and the charity auction held with My Home Move’s industry partners at its annual conference.
Industry partners donated over £12,000 through sponsorship of Head of Legal Practice, Rob Gurney’s, Lands’ End to John O’Groats bike ride, as well as bidding on days out and luxury items at the 2017 conference.
Speaking of the donation, Rob Gurney, Head of Legal Practice and Trustee for the MHM Charitable Trust, said:
“We are always extremely grateful for the support of our industry partners for their donations to the Trust. Their involvement and enthusiasm for what we are trying to achieve through our fundraising efforts means we are able to help more and more people every year. Through new fundraising initiatives such as a monthly lottery, as well as challenges completed by employees across the business, we were able to raise more money in 2017 than we have ever before, so the impact we can have on the organisations we support is phenomenal.”*
£28,000 was raised for the good causes supported through the MHM Charitable Trust in 2017, including organisations that care for people who are dealing with homelessness in Leicester, Manchester and Northampton. Employees also nominated Kidney Care UK to receive an additional donation from the MHM Charitable Trust. The cheque was presented to a Kidney Care UK representative at the Leicester Royal Infirmary on Friday 2nd February.
Continuing, Rob said, “The commitment that my colleagues have shown over the last year has been phenomenal, taking on bigger and bolder challenges to make sure we can have as big of an impact on the charities that we support as we possibly can. Being able to support organisations like The Bridge that have a significant effect on the lives of people in our communities is an absolute pleasure, and I know that everyone at My Home Move is incredibly humbled by the work that these organisations do every day. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at My Home Move that has been involved in our fundraising in the last year and I look forward to seeing what they have in store for 2018.”
