ATG Charity Football Marathon.

ATG Charity Football Marathon.

I'm sure that you're aware by now that as a company we're big on charity and love raising funds & awareness on worthy causes. This year our chosen charity for July 18-19 is The Stroke Association and our most recent initiative truly put the fitness of our team to the test.

Halloween with the Stroke Association

Halloween with the Stroke Association

Yesterday we were up to some mischief in the office, each of our employees donated £5 each to see Mark (the boss!) dress up in a costume of our choice! So you know we had to pick him out something good aha.

This year we dressed him up as the male alter ego of Dorothy from the renown Wizard of Oz and they definitely weren't in Kansas anymore.

This year we have raised over £2000 for Macmillan Cancer Support!

This year we have raised over £2000 for Macmillan Cancer Support!

This time last year we decided as a company to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support; a charity which our FD, David Carr has a personal experience with when his Grandad was diagnosed with Cancer. Since that point, we have done a variety of charity initiatives such as running an internal tuckshop, entering mud runs, held comedy nights and even we went as far as dressing our MD as a witch for the entire day! After our year-long run, we are pleased to announce that we have raised a whopping £2132.05! a new record which exceeds our initial target of only £1000.

As a company, we just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone that has donated and supported us in raising money for such a worthy cause!

While we celebrate our fantastic achievement as a company it'll be worth mentioning our new charity for 2018-19. This year we will be supporting the Stroke Association in memory of our colleagues mother who suddenly and unexpectedly passed away earlier this year to a stroke after battling cancer.

Today we've been up to some mischief, each of our employees has donated £5 each to see Mark (the boss!) dress up in a costume of our choice! So you know we had to pick him out something good aha.

Youll be happy to know we've jam-packed his calendar today just so he can show off his lovely new get-up to the outside world! On top of Mark's new makeover, the lovely Kate Jones has baked us some terrifyingly delicious cakes.

A Year of Fundraising for The MNDA

 

We have just completed a year of fundraising for The Motor Neurone Disease Association. Kate explains why and how we did it.
A little over a year ago, ATG, as a company decided that we’d like to support a different charity every year by raising money for them.
