Pudsey-based G&H Group has presented charities with over £15,000 after reaching its fundraising target two months ahead of schedule.
Last year the mechanical, electrical and public health service provider announced it would aim to raise £5,000 each for Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association, Prostate Cancer UK and mental health organisation, Leeds Mind.
G&H, which is based off South Parade, raised the money by holding several ‘pay-to-play’ events over the course of the year with G&H staff taking on suppliers in darts, shuffle board and table tennis.
A league table was created and a final saw the top two teams battle it out before being presented with a trophy.
Managing director of G&H Group, Graham Kelly, said: “We set an ambitious target at the start of 2022 and we’re delighted to have been able to present these valuable funds to the charities.
“Reaching the target two months early was due to the hard work and commitment of everyone who took part in events to raise money, those who organised activities and people who donated generously so I would like to thank them all.
“Most importantly, the money raised means we are able to help the three charities delivering their vital work to support people when they need it most.”
Corporate and Events Fundraiser at Leeds Mind, Sophie Westmoreland, said: “We have been blown away by the generosity and creativity of the team at G&H Group. Bringing their team together to have fun while raising money for vital mental health services across Leeds just shows us what being part of this vibrant community is all about.
“We know that more than 60% of people in Yorkshire report having had a mental health difficulty and the money G&H Group has raised will help us to deliver support to meet the needs of people in our local area.”
Sarah Marshall of MNDA said: “Thank you so much for your fundraising you have done for three great charities. For us, this will go towards vital research and support for families living with MND.”
And Ruth Triggs, of Prostate Cancer UK, added: “Prostate Cancer UK is immensely grateful for the hugely generous donation which will support our research and also men and their families affected by this disease.”
