Company’s record £14,683 donation to charity


A WARRINGTON company has raised a staggering £14,683.31 for their chosen charity – The Christie cancer centre.
Employees from engineering solutions provider, Boulting Group have pushed their bodies to the limit and completed a variety of gruelling feats of endurance to raise the money.
Based in Manchester, The Christie is the largest single-site cancer centre in Europe, treating more than 44,000 patients a year. The money raised will help fund the important work and support the facilities provided for cancer patients and their families.
Josh Groarke, deputy group managing director at Boulting, said: “Cancer is one of the few remaining human diseases that scientists are yet to cure. Recent breakthroughs in stem cell research in particular means that we are closer than ever to overcoming cancer.
“This is why we’re proud of the determination of our staff and it means that, this year, we have presented The Christie with our biggest charitable donation to date.
“Special thanks are made to Dave Jackson, Billy Ramsay, Matt Hemsworth and Kevin O’Hara who took part in a 60-mile Manchester to Blackpool bike ride; Victoria McWhirter for competing in her first Pretty Muddy event; and Sam Blair for another Tough Mudder entry.”
Staff who did not fancy getting muddy participated in a number of additional fundraising events throughout the year, including Boulting’s inaugural summer ball, which raised £7,400 as well as Easter and summer raffles and various dress-down days.
