Equity Solutions raises over £3.5K for Cancer Research UK

Posted By Equity Solutions

We are delighted to announce that we have raised a fantastic £3,560.54 for our 2016 charity of the year Cancer Research UK, which will go towards funding important research for over 200 types of cancer.

We’ve had several fundraising events this year to help achieve this amount, including bake sales, Fundraising Fridays and taking part in Cancer Research’s Britain’s Biggest Breakfast event in October.

Several of our staff have also taken part in some brilliant fundraising activities such as the Manchester Pretty Muddy 5K Challenge, Tough Mudder and The Way of the Roses coast-to-coast bike ride.

A huge thank you and well done to all staff for taking part in their various challenges, and to all those who sponsored us to help raise this amazing amount of money for Cancer Research UK.

We will be announcing our 2017 charity very soon.

Tough Mudder team completes 20K challenge in 4 hours

Posted By Equity Solutions

A huge well done goes to our fantastic Tough Mudder team ‘How I met your Mudda’ who completed the gruelling 20K course (most of which was up hill) on Saturday at Broughton Hall in North Yorkshire. Each and everyone one faced challenges throughout the day but as a team they overcame them and completed the course in 4 hours.

On completing the course, Zoe Openshaw said: “It was a great day and we laughed from the beginning to the end. Thank you to everyone who has sponsored us so far.”

Between our Tough Mudders and other recent challenges, we’ve raised a fantastic £3,100 for Cancer Research UK so far! You can still sponsor the team and help to raise money for Cancer Research UK by donating through our Virgin Money page.

Equity Solutions announces Cancer Research UK as its Charity of the Year 2016

Posted By Equity Solutions

We are delighted to announce that Cancer Research UK is our 2016 Charity of the Year, following a staff vote.

As an organisation we feel strongly that we should contribute to those who need support and we encourage staff to contribute to our charity work, make use of their annual Employee Volunteer Day and participate in our various events and fundraising activities.

Cancer Research UK has saved millions of lives by discovering new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer. Over the past century, researchers have made consistent progress in the fight against cancer, and survival rates have doubled over the past 40 years, but there is still so much we can do.

We will be kicking our fundraising off in April so watch out for more details coming soon.
