Keystone Group raises vital funds for Marie Curie

  • 8 Feb 2019

Throughout 2018, The Keystone Group raised over £5,500 which was recently presented to Sandra Spence, the Community Fundraiser at the Marie Curie Charity.

At the start of the year, employees at Keystone Cookstown voted Marie Curie as the group’s official charity partner for 2018. 

Marie Curie provides a range of support services to people living with a terminal illness and their families including information and advice, nurses providing hands-on care at home and hospice care. Each year Marie Curie provide care and support for around 4,000 people living with a terminal illness, their carers and loved ones in Northern Ireland.

As part of the Keystone Group’s Keyfit initiative to help their employees look after their health and wellbeing, the Cookstown team climbed Slieve Donard, the highest peak in Northern Ireland while also raising funds for Marie Curie.

Other fundraising events included a prize raffle at the Keystone Group’s annual staff appreciation barbeque and an office ‘Come Dine with Me’ event. This week-long event saw Keystone employees put their culinary skills to the test with new dishes to try every day as people made donations to vote for the best dish.

Mareanne Bradley, Marketing Services Manager at the Keystone Group comments: “We are delighted to have raised £5,500 for such a worthy cause. A lot of people know someone who has been helped by the range of support services offered by Marie Curie in Northern Ireland and we would like to say a big thank you to our employees and their generous donations throughout the year. We asked our employees to vote for our chosen charity this year and we are pleased to announce Chest, Heart and Stroke and Support 2Gether will be our joint chosen charities in 2019. We are looking forward to more great fundraising activities in the year ahead.”
