Successful charity year for SSG!
- Date: Thursday 12th December 2019
We have had a great year of charity work, raising a huge total of £450 for our three charities: Devon Air Ambulance Trust, RNLI and Children’s Hospice South West.
On top of chosen fundraising events, we’ve taken part in a variety of organised events for great causes and sponsored local teams and individuals.
Fundraising events in 2019 have included a company quiz, taking part in ‘Last Team Standing’ for the second year, having fun at the Cancer Research Plymouth’s Pretty Muddy Run and a selection of other marathons and sporting events.
We’ve also been busy in the local community, sponsoring Devonport Services Rugby Club Under 11s on their journey to Twickenham, becoming the 19/2020 sponsors of a West Devon netball team and donating 70 Easter eggs to local charities Children’s Hospice South West and Derriford Children’s Ward.
Continuing our charity work through the festive period, we have held festive themed events and a team Christmas card with all funds being split between the three designated charities.
As a final fundraiser, the whole team have been collecting a range of food and hygiene items which will be donated to the Oasis Project / Plymouth Food Bank.
Denise Maclean, Marketing Manager at SSG, said “We’ve had so much fun with all of our charity efforts this year; including our annual events and branching out to new ones like the Pretty Muddy run which we’ll be adding to next year’s list! We’re overwhelmed to have raised such a huge amount for our three chosen charities and to have supported the community."
