PTSG raises charity funds through Christmas events

Staff members at Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) have taken part in festive events to raise money for some hugely worthwhile causes.

The Christmas Jumper Day, now a permanent fixture in the diary for a great many organisations large and small and the Christmas Fuddle (taking place on 20th December) combined to raise nearly £150.

All participants chose a charity for funds to be put towards. Nominations were put into a hat and the two drawn at random were:

• Yorkshire Air Ambulance
• Save the Children

The funds will be split evenly between the two. 2019 has been a busy year for PTSG’s 1,200+ staff, who raised money for various charities. Some of the notable events are:

• The Mallorca 312 – an ultra-endurance cycle event around the mountains of Mallorca. Richard Castle-Smith (Fire Solutions) raised over £4,500 for Brain Tumour Research.
• The Tough Mudder in Wakefield – a 5k run for Cancer Research UK completed by Sam Mattix, Grace Mitchell, Rita Kitchen and Caroline Rushworth (head office).
• The Great North Run, completed by Georgina Almond (Electrical Services) to raise funds for research into pancreatic cancer.
• Mount Snowden trek – completed by Tim Bagshaw (Electrical Services) in aid of Two Rivers Special School in Tamworth.
• Ben Nevis trek – Jim Boyle (Electrical Services) completed a walk up “The Ben” in aid of Children’s Association Hospice Scotland (CHAS) and MacMillan Cancer Support.
• Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge – Sim Childes (Electrical Services) raised money for the Rotherham Hospice.
• London to Brighton off-road bike ride – a 75-mile mixed-terrain event completed by five of the Group’s lightning protection estimators, raising funds for the British Heart Foundation.
• Mallory 100 Plop Enduro 2019 – an eight-hour endurance race in which a team of four took turns to ride a Honda C90.
• The London Marathon – Darren King (Electrical Compliance) completed the race in 2:36:02, putting him in first place in the 50-54 age range.
