To coincide with our 30th Anniversary, Mercia Image Print, owned by Amanda Strong, have launched the 30 Days of Giving initiative to try to raise up to £30,000 over a period of 30 days for 30 local charities. Working with Derby County Community Trust, Treetops Hospice Care, The Breakfast Club, Big C Little C and Children First Derby (the 5 major charities), Mercia are arranging a series of fund raising events throughout June 2019. The objectives will be to have fun, meet other like-minded people and try to raise as much money as possible for the 5 major charities as well as 25 other local charities. The aim is £30,000 over a period of 30 days.
We want Derby companies to join together for 30 days to support / sponsor an event throughout the month to raise money throughout June 2019. Any company can take part in the 30 Days of Giving campaign. This could include running their own event, or agreeing to ‘host / sponsor’ one of the 30 Days of Giving events. We also want all businesses joining in the Celebration Dinner at the end of the 30 days on the 29th June. Events can be large or small – any event can be included in the programme – it does not have to involve any other company or external personnel so can be completely run in-house.
Amanda Strong, Managing Director said, “To celebrate our 30 years, we are focusing on everything 30 in our 30 Days of Giving. Although a tall order, it would be amazing if we could finish the month with £30,000.”
Derby County Community Trust, Treetops Hospice Care, The Breakfast Club, Big C Little C and Children First Derby, the major sponsored charities, are pooling their resources to focus the Derby business community into having fun and raising money for their causes, and for other 25 local charities. They all work tirelessly within the area to help local people in need. By supporting them with 30 Days of Giving, we will help so many people who have had their lives touched by sadness or difficulties, and need a little bit of help.
All monies raised will be donated to the 30 charities, If you would like to support this great cause then we would love to see you at the launch event: Date: Wednesday 8th May 2019
