What a fantastic start to the year for Benchmarx and Macmillan!
We have set ourselves the ambitious target to raise £150,000 in 2017 and our strong Q1 performance has got us well on our way.
Q1 total: £40,513
On 28th March Benchmarx branches held a fundraising day - Go Mad Go Green for Macmillan and it was a huge success! From Senior Management dressed as Shrek and Fiona, to chilli eating competitions, Benchmarx did it all. Across Travis Perkins and Benchmarx, over £50,000 was raised which is incredible in just one day. We hope you enjoyed going Green for Macmillan!
Alongside this, our colleagues have been busy organising raffles, sweepstakes, competitions and tuckshops in branch. We’ve also noticed a rise in those taking part in physical challenges - perhaps it’s all those New Year’s Resolutions!
Thank you for your fantastic support so far this year. We have seen some wonderful people do some amazing things.
Next up… Takeover Tuesday is back on 20th June! This activity is part of a wider awareness campaign running from 12th – 25th June which is being supported by a variety of businesses from the construction industry. During this time, we are encouraging more people to speak up about cancer and look to Macmillan for support.
