September was a busy month here at Trios as we dove into our fundraising campaign for MacMillan Cancer Support.
MacMillan Cancer Support are a charity that do all they can to support those living with cancer. You can find out more about MacMillan here.
The launch of the campaign saw Trios colleagues form two teams and take part in the ‘Business Fives Charity Football Event’ at Power League in Birmingham on 5 September. Both of our teams made to the quarter-finals and finished the day off beaming with pride of being able to claim the most money raised for their charity during the tournament.
Our fundraising efforts continued during the month with our Erdington office hosting their MacMillan Coffee Morning and bake sale. Colleagues offered their time to donate baked good and happily purchased the treats on offer.
Our Erdington office also offered freshly made waffles with a variety of toppings and were visited by some of the Arcus FM team, who pitched in with their own donations of food and money.
The team at Cirencester also got involved with their own Coffee Morning and bake sale which including savoury goods for breakfast and a six layer-rainbow cake! Mike Forrest, Head of Marketing at Arcus FM joined the team at Cirencester and said “if we make baking on a Friday a more regular thing I’ll house-hunting in the area!”
We’re extremely proud of the combined efforts of our team. We originally had a target of £500 but with the donations from the football tournament and everyone more than willing than to snatch up some cakes, we reached an incredible £897.60.
The team at Arcus FM were thrilled to watch and participate in the fundraising campaign and wanted to top up funds by £500.00.
We’re thrilled to announce we have raised £1379.60!
But there’s still time to donate, so if you’d like to add to our total, you can donate via our JustGiving page here.
