The team at Orton Group were delighted to hand over a cheque for £5,000 to a worthwhile charity close to our hearts.
As part of our 25th anniversary in business, we pledged to give something back and chose a handful of charities to support throughout our celebratory year, one of these being the Cystic Fibrosis Trust (CFT).
At our recent birthday bash, we handed over the cheque with funds that we raised from several challenges, including mounting biking across Cannock Chase, completing Tough Mudder, an Ultra White Collar boxing match, climbing Mount Snowdon – to name but a few!
And with our target reached, thanks to donations and support flooding in from team members, family, friends and business contacts, we were delighted to share it with CFT, which helps to improve the quality of life for those living with cystic fibrosis.
Andrew Lowe, Managing Director of Orton Group said: “We’re delighted to have completed the challenges all in aid of a wonderful cause, to mark our big business milestone. The funds we have raised will help CFT to continue to carry out the vital work that is needed to care for those living with the condition.”
Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic condition affecting more than 10,400 people in the UK, with one in 25 of carrying the faulty gene which causes it. To find out more Cystic Fibrosis, visit: www.cysticfibrosis.org.uk
