Charity netball match
Johnson Fleming employees took part in a charity netball match which saw different areas of the business pitched against each other. Thanks to Bromsgrove's Ryland Centre, which provided the use of its facilities for free.
The highly competitive tournament saw Team Finance, Consultancy and Marketing win by a margin of 14 points to five. A fining system was also enforced which saw those involved in foul play or unsporting behavior fined. Remarkably this boosted the afternoons fundraising efforts to £201.50.
Fling a flan
Employees also had the chance to 'fling a flan' at senior management. Johnson Fleming's senior management team each took a cream pie in the face in aid of CLIC Sargent's Whipping Childhood Cancer challenge. Bids were placed for the opportunity to 'pie a suit' with the total amount of bids reaching £200.
Through a cream covered face, chief executive Simon Fletcher said: "We are delighted to have been able to raise £400 for CLIC Sargent these past few weeks, this has seen our current total rise to around £1,600. Sean Moore who works in our IT Department took part in the Birmingham Half Marathon and this will hopefully see us move closer to our overall target of £5,000 plus we have further events planned over the coming months."
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager, Anna Finnegan said: "we are delighted that Johnson Fleming have chosen CLIC Sargent as their charity of the year, we are very much looking forward to working with them in the coming months to help them achieve their fundraising target."
