Plumbmaster Steps up to Raise £3000 for Addiction NI
Plumbmaster, a leading supplier to the Plumbing & Heating Industry in Northern Ireland, is doing its part to help raise much-needed funds for Addiction NI.
Devastatingly, COVID-19 has forced many charities to cancel their fundraising activities throughout 2020/21 & left them experiencing difficulties accessing much-needed funds.
Committed to lending their support, Plumbmaster, part of the Haldane Group, launched their ‘Step Away with Addiction NI’ Challenge & raised a total of £3000 for Addiction NI. The Initiative encouraged employees across Northern Ireland & England to work together in teams of four to achieve the maximum number of steps over the month of March.
With a total of 23 teams & over 90 participants, employees walked a combined total of 36,876,533 steps, the equivalent to 19,047 miles in just 31 days.
Eamonn McCarthy, Plumbmaster Director said;
I am absolutely delighted with the uptake in the Steps Challenge. Cheryl Gibbs, Plumbmaster Sales & Development Manager, came to me a few months ago & suggested the idea - and I loved it.
It brought serious competition within the teams & a healthy & clearer mind-set for all those who participated - as well as raising vital money for an extremely worthwhile cause.
I congratulate each & every person on their efforts, especially the winners. I did lose some side bets personally after a poor performance but I am proud of the incredible tally that was achieved.
Danielle Sheridan, Fundraising Manager from Addiction NI commented;
Thank you to the staff at Plumbmaster for their recent support for Addiction NI.
Covid-19 has had a huge impact on all of us this year, which is why we are so grateful to Plumbmaster for their fundraising efforts through their recent Steps Challenge and Last Man Standing competition.
Their fundraising will help us continue to support people across Northern Ireland through their recovery journey.
We would like to extend our thanks to the whole Plumbmaster team for championing and supporting our work.
