Our Corporate Partners, One Advice Group are in the top 1% of fundraisers on JustGiving this month.

The professional financial services company chose us as their Charity of the Year in September last year thanks to their social team ‘The Culture Club’. The team have raised £5,950 since September 2014 and hope to better this target by the end of the year.

The team have taken part in a variety of activities including the 10k (pictured), a comedy night, a marathon, the purchase of our Manchester with Love prints, Caketober, next month’s skydive and more.

Kevin O’Donnell, Marketing Executive at One Advice Group said: “Our staff are always looking to give back into the communities in which they live, and we have a responsible business policy to support local. It’s the perfect partnership that makes achieving this easy. Plus, Forever Manchester make fundraising fun – we’ve abseiled, dressed up, baked, ran, cycled and for the first time next month we have two people skydiving!”

To be in the top 1% of JustGiving in the UK is a great achievement, and we thank One Advice Group for all of the hard work they do in raising funds for us month on month.

Ged Murray, Director of Business Philanthropy said: “In a sector that has in the past, faced a lot of criticism, it’s great to see one of the leading companies taking their CSR activity so seriously. One Advice have been heavily involved with us since the relationship began in September and we look forward to seeing what else they’re challenging themselves to do.”
