Breaking a record: Magpas Paramedic Dan Read, Recruitment Consultant Sam Price from THE ONE GROUP, Managing Director Tristan Drane of THE ONE GROUP and Magpas Doctor Sarah McNeilly mark this impressive fundraising achievement at the Magpas Operations Base
Cambridge, Peterborough and Northampton based recruitment specialists, THE ONE GROUP, visited the Magpas Operations Base recently with a great deal to be proud about! This company have broken their all-time annual fundraising target, by raising over £12,000 in a single event! This followed their eighth annual corporate Lifesavers Golf Day where, almost one hundred business representatives gathered at John O’ Gaunt Golf Club, in Sandy. This brings THE ONE GROUP’s grand fundraising total to over £50,000 – all for Air Ambulance Charity Magpas.
On 3rd July this year, 88 golfers from businesses across the region and beyond took to the fairways. THE ONE GROUP Managing Director Tristan Drane and his team always make sure the costs from the golf days are covered, so that all monies donated go directly to Magpas. Tristan and his colleague Sam Price came to present their cheque to the Magpas team today and said, “We are honoured to have supported Magpas over the last eight years, to watch the organisation grow, gain well deserved recognition – and know that even more people have been treated with crucial care in the Eastern Region”.
Many companies involved supported the golf day by sponsoring holes and by also making generous donations to the event’s silent auction. Recruitment Consultant Sam Price from THE ONE GROUP spent a huge amount of time organising the golf day and pointed out, “We are immensely grateful to all who paid to take part on the day. Everyone put their hands in their pockets to make the event happen and demonstrated huge generosity”.
Head of Communications at Magpas, Antonia Brickell, summed things up by saying “THE ONE GROUP team have been and continue to be outstanding supporters and loyal fundraisers. To raise over £12,000 in one day alone is, I think you’ll agree, very impressive work! We feel privileged to be their chosen charity and are extremely grateful for the £50,000 Tristan and his staff have raised for us over the years. The money donated will help Magpas continue to bring lifesaving care by land and by air 24/7, to patients in life threatening situations, in the East of England and beyond”.
