PJH ‘makes a difference’ to children’s hospital charity

Published:  28 February, 2014

PJH Group has raised over £3,000 for the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity, which raises funds to improve the treatment, care and research for the UK’s largest single-site children’s hospital.

Voted for by staff at PJH Group, as the company’s chosen charity, employees and directors have got involved with a range of fundraising events over the last three years, helping to generate funds to support this important cause. From the adventurous to the fun, activities have ranged from a daring abseil at the Trafford Centre and the infamous Great Manchester 10k Run, to creative bake-off’s and sponsored dress down days.

Jason Shaw, chief financial officer at PJH Group, said: “From board to floor level, many PJH staff, including some of our customers, have participated and helped to organise a variety of successful events to support the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital. The response has been fantastic, promoting some good team spirit along the way, not to mention some healthy competition among staff as well.

“Like the PJH strapline, we hope our support has helped to ‘make a difference’ to the lives of the many children and families that have benefitted from the care they have received while at the hospital.”

On being presented with the cheque, Jessica Davies of the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity, said: “We are very grateful for PJH Group’s support. It has raised over £3,000, which is fantastic and will go towards much needed treatment, care and research within Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital. A special thank you also, to those who ran the Great Manchester Run and raised sponsorship.”
