The mold-based P&A group has exceeded its fundraising target, raising nearly £10,500 for the British Heart Foundation in just six months!
From the Manchester Marathon to a month-long ‘dechox’ to a quiz night, company employees across different divisions and locations have put their hearts and souls into raising funds for this worthy cause. .
Chosen by employees as the company’s charity of the year for 2022, the British Heart Foundation helps and supports 340,000 people with heart and circulatory conditions in Wales.
P&A Group Chief Executive Steve Morgan said: “I’m delighted we’ve already beaten the £10,000 target, but everyone is determined to keep raising money for the British Heart Foundation.”
“There are still plenty of events left like the Clwydian Three Peaks Challenge this month, Tough Mudder, an exercise bike challenge and the Flintshire 5k/10k in October, to name a few.”
