Express Summer Party Raises £1,200
Express Solicitors, based in Northenden, recently raised £1,200 for Forever Manchester at their summer garden party. Over the last two years they have now raised well over £20,000 to help local communities across Greater Manchester.
As well as raising money for us by taking part in the Great Manchester 10k Run and Caketober, and sponsoring our annual Birthday Party, they also host their own fundraisers. In July they held their Summer Party and in September they’ll be doing a skydive for us.
Carole Jones, who is a Partner at Express Solicitors and one of our Ambassadors, said: “Express Solicitors and Forever Manchester have lots in common, we’re both Manchester-based and passionate about improving the lives of local people and neighbourhoods across the 10 boroughs of Greater Manchester.
“As a local employer we want our employees to feel that they are proud to work for a company that engages with its workforce, understands and takes action to do more than just fulfil its corporate social responsibility. Working with Forever Manchester allows us to do this.”
Nick Massey, CEO of Forever Manchester, said: “We’ve been working closely with Carole and the Express team over the past two years and I think it’s fair to say we’ve both had lots of fun while raising money at the same time. If we can help employees get some enjoyment from fundraising it can help in their motivation and hopefully help increase Express’ productivity at the same time. It’s a pleasure to work with such a forward-thinking organisation.”
