Simon Holly, Head of Sales & our Customer Care Manager’s husband Matt Farrington ran the Vitality Half Marathon in London to raise money for Manorfield Primary School who are situated in a deprived area of Tower Hamlets and whose playground we developed.
With a sponsorship donation from ESP towards the cost of the branded T-shirts and monies raised by Simon and Matt we handed the school £2,500.
We also donated £100 to the Manorfield Primary School Foodbank for Christmas.
Through raffling Christmas gifts donated by our suppliers we raised £139.00 for the charity Circus Starr. This amount sponsored 5 local disabled and disadvantaged children with their parents or carers to attend the circus at a venue in Burnley.
During Lockdown we hosted a charity quiz and donations of £25 were made to each of these charities nominated by the top three scores – Cancer Research, Bleakholt Animal Sanctuary and the RNLI.
We raised a total of £106 for Macmillan through a socially distanced coffee morning/week.
And we raised over £40 for Children in Need
In February ESP signed up for the Pendleside Hospice Corporate Challenge but unfortunately due to COVID this was cancelled BUT we will be signing up again in 2021.
During December we have raised £42.11 through a festive “Bake Off” and Christmas Jumper day for Save The Children and collected presents for the Burnley Christmas Present Appeal.
