Building support

Staff, guests and their partners of Munro Building Services were invited to Ladies day at Newmarket Racecourses July course on Thursday 9th July and were not only treated to a superb day of hospitality at this well respected annual event, but also had the chance to support the Arthur Rank Hospice Charity new hospice appeal.

Munro, who were appointed the mechanical and electrical installation specialists for the state-of-the-art project last year, wanted to help the charity on its way to its £10.5 million target by supporting the appeal. Eight teams were given £50 each to place bets on the eight races which took place during the day, on the proviso that all winnings would be matched by Munro to further increase the value of the donation.

The tremendous amount of £3,000 was subsequently donated today at the new site at Shelford Bottom. The structure is really taking shape and with each donation received the charity moves one step closer to its goal to ultimately care for a greater number of patients and be more accessible across the whole county to those who require the services of the hospice.

Steve Barry, Managing Director for Munro Building Services commented: 'Being able to support local charitable causes right on our doorstep in Cambridge is a vital part of our corporate social responsibility agenda. We are really proud to be part of the project team, whilst also being able to give something back to the community and this project where our friends, families, colleagues and employees in the Cambridge community will be able to benefit from this new facility in times of need.'

Donna Talbot, Director of Fundraising & Communications at Arthur Rank Hospice added: 'We are so grateful to the staff and management of Munro. We always love to hear of innovative ways in which to include fundraising in corporate events and this one has definitely proved popular. Most successful fundraising happens when people are already having fun and by offering to match the funds raised, Munro have really illustrated their support for the project.'

The charity has now raised £6.4 million of the £10.5 million needed to complete the project and continues to work hard to raise the remaining £4.1 million.
