Manchester-based audio branding specialist PHMG has increased its target and is aiming to donate £100,000 to charity in 2017. The company donated, via the PHMG Foundation, £60,000 in 2016 after employees from around the world beat their target.
Staff raised £30,000 through a series of events including:
- a global Santa Dash
- a tour of all 92 Football League grounds in 75 hours
- and a Gladiator-style assault course.
The company, which also has offices in London, Chicago and Toronto, and more than 22,000 clients in 39 countries worldwide, then matched that sum to make the £60,000 total.
This year staff have been challenged to raise £50,000. The company will once again match this. Donations this year will go to 18 charities in the UK and abroad, including the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, Elmy’s Special Society, St Clare Hospice and Toronto Human Society.
Over the last four years, PHMG has taken part in 150 events to raise more than £150,000 for almost 50 different charitable organisations.
Chris Berisford, Finance Director at PHMG and PHMG Foundation Trustee, said:
“The level of employee generosity and enthusiasm during 2016’s fundraising campaign was incredible to watch. Each year, it becomes more and more difficult to come up with new and interesting ways to raise money but our staff always seem to exceed themselves.”
How are charities selected?
The charities are chosen each November by staff. In addition, PHMG accepts requests from charities to raise money for them.
