Stelrad celebrates fundraising success
Published: 16 June, 2016
Stelrad’s Social and Charity Events Forum has announced that it has raised over £15,000 since it was formed back in 2011.
The 80 plus members of the Forum organise and attend a wide range of events, and they chose the charities to be supported by their fund raising exploits – with the money raised being split equally between the national charity for injured servicemen and women, Help for Heroes, and Blue Bell Wood Children’s Hospice locally in South Yorkshire.
“This is a magnificent effort by the group and says a lot about the employees we have that they are so dedicated to ensuring that others benefit from the social events that they enjoy on a regular basis,” said Stelrad HR manager Lisa Chambers. “There were those who questioned if there was a place for a group like this when it was formed. Being within the work environment, with people so busy and involved in their own social lives, there were doubters, but the magnificent fundraising proves that there certainly is a place and a role for a work-based social group in 2016.”
