Endurance fundraising with Stannah employees

  • 8 Sep 2017

Stannah employees have been partaking in fundraising activities for worthy causes this summer.

Marcia Johnson, Communications Manager for Stannah Lift Services Ltd, completed a 150km skating charity challenge to raise funds for the Countess of Brecknock Trust, whilst Rosie Wilson, Business Analyst from the Stannah Management Services Team, at Head office, took part in the Andover Triathlon to raise money for Piggles Trust.

Marcia managed to raise over £900 for the local hospice and, thanks to the pledge from Stannah to match funds raised by 150 per cent (to mark this year’s 150th anniversary), the grand total has reached a whopping £2,250 and is still rising.

She completed the gruelling 150km skating challenge (which equates to 93.2 miles), in six parts, over 11 hours throughout the summer.

The funds raised will help to support the crucial services the Countess of Brecknock Trust provides. Originally founded with the Support of Macmillan Cancer relief, the trust has been providing care and community support since it was set up in 1990.

Rosie has managed to reach her fundraising target of £1050 and, thanks to Stannah’s 150 year anniversary pledge, the grand total has already reached a whopping £2,625 and is still rising.

To mark Rosie’s fantastic fundraising effort, Jon Stannah presented Caroline Martin, Founder of Piggles Trust and mother of Harriet Martin with a cheque for £1,575.00 at Stannah’s Head Office in Andover.

The funds raised will help to support locally founded charity Piggles Trust, a charity set up by the Martin family from Amport, Hampshire, in loving memory of their daughter Harriet Martin. Harriet tragically passed away at the age of just 4 back in May 2016, and Piggles Trust was set up to honour her memory and to raise funds for early years/pre-school education in hospitals.
