Plumbers merchant City Plumbing Supplies (CPS), part of the Travis Perkins Group, has stepped up its fundraising efforts for Teenage Cancer Trust, announcing that over £800K has been raised since the partnership began in 2012.
Staff, suppliers, and customers across the CPS business have completed a wide scope of activities including the London Marathon, sponsored cycles, sky dives, mountain climbs, golf days, and the renowned Tough Mudder Mud Race.
The high intensity events have been complemented by a whole host of fun events including breakfast mornings, raffles, showroom open evenings, quiz nights, sponsored walks, and BBQs. Recently, the CPS team held a regional ball in Southport which raised just under £10,000 with a little help from a very popular Tina Turner tribute act.
John Frost, managing director of CPS, said: “It’s a great feeling to know that we’re coming together across the whole business and raising so much money for such a worthy cause.
“As our branch network rapidly grows this year, it’s more important than ever that we can act as a single team to accomplish achievements such as this, while aiming for our target to raise £1million before the end of 2015.”
Siobhan Dunn, chief executive of Teenage Cancer Trust, added: “The enthusiasm from City Plumbing Supplies continues to be absolutely fantastic and we have been blown away by their support.
“Teenage Cancer Trust relies on donations to fund its vital work and for every young person we can currently support, there’s another we cannot reach.
“We are cheering CPS throughout their mission to now reach the million pound target.”
