ASCG raises £4,000 for Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice

Bradford-based Advanced Supply Chain Group (ASCG) has raised £4,000 for Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, placing them in the top 3% of fundraisers on JustGiving for the month of April 2018.

As part of the firm’s Internal Management Development scheme, a group led by project support team lead at ASCG, Dave Shaw, has been fundraising for the hospice.

Forget Me Not is a pioneering children’s hospice that supports and cares for children with life-shortening conditions and their families. During recent months, Dave, alongside Chris Mullaney, Azim Khatana, Marta Tusk, Sharon Scott and Katie Bottomley, has coordinated a host of fundraising activities in memory of their colleague’s daughter, Pippa Townson-Mullaney. The team were inspired to back the charity which supported Pippa and her family, where she stayed in the Snowflake Suite.

The group arranged a host of fundraising activities, with highlights including Bradford’s Best British Bake Off, with the winner receiving a hamper of treats generously donated by bakery Lottie Shaw’s, as well as an auction that saw some of the senior team at ASCG donate their time to the highest bidder.

Dave commented: “Each of us began this venture with modest expectations, but as the project grew, momentum built and we realised we might be able to raise a truly significant sum of money for the charity. £3,500 is the cost to allow another family to use the excellent facilities in the Snowflake Suite and we are over the moon to have surpassed this target. Thank you to everyone who has supported our efforts so far – we’re looking forward to continuing to support the charity.”

As part of the business’s wider corporate social responsibility, ASCG is committed to supporting charitable initiatives which this year has seen the business back charity bike ride, the Wharfedale Ton, and take part in ASOS Foundation’s charity golf day. The business also supports Endometriosis UK with fundraising efforts across the team including Benjamin Shaw who ran the Brighton Marathon and Carole Finn who coordinates fundraising events including the annual charity ball in Leeds.
