Successful charity year for SSG Training and Consultancy

The team at SSG Training and Consultancy has had a great year of charity work, raising £450 for their three charities: Devon Air Ambulance Trust, RNLI and Children’s Hospice South West.

On top of chosen fundraising events, the team has taken part in a variety of organised events for great causes and sponsored local teams and individuals.

Fundraising events in 2019 included a company quiz, taking part in ‘Last Team Standing’ for the second year, having fun at Plymouth’s Pretty Muddy Run and a selection of other marathons and sporting events.

They were also busy in the local community, sponsoring Devonport Services Rugby Club Under 11s on their journey to Twickenham, becoming the 19/2020 sponsors of a West Devon netball team and donating 70 Easter eggs to local charities Children’s Hospice South West and Derriford Children’s Ward.

Continuing the charity work through the festive period, SSG Training and Consultancy has held festive-themed events and organised a team Christmas card, with all funds being split between the three designated charities.

As a final fundraiser, the whole team has been collecting a range of food and hygiene items which will be donated to the Oasis Project/Plymouth Food Bank.

Denise Maclean, Marketing Manager at SSG, said: “We’ve had so much fun with all of our charity efforts this year, including our annual events and branching out to new ones like the Pretty Muddy run, which we’ll be adding to next year’s list!

“We’re overwhelmed to have raised such a huge amount for our three chosen charities and to have supported the community.”
