Concert Pledge £10,000 to Charity

Tough Mudder Zander

North west telecoms firm Concert are marking a milestone anniversary by pledging to raise £10,000 for a world-renowned cancer hospital.

The Knutsford-based firm is turning 10 in 2014 and to celebrate the team have embarked on a series of fundraising events to raise money for The Christie.

From undertaking the Great Manchester Swim to conquering the dizzy heights of Snowdon, the Concert team will be going all out to raise the significant sum, which will help fund a play specialist for young cancer patients.

Neil Hollands, MD of Concert, said: “The Christie is a world leader in cancer care and research and we are delighted to support them in our 10th anniversary year.

“The work they do is absolutely incredible and touches so many lives. We are incredibly proud to support them in their fundraising goals.”

Fundraising efforts have already got underway with First Line Support Engineer Manuel Dal Zotto, New Business Specialist Ross Brown and Billing and Sales Analyst Zander Fyfe kick-starting the campaign.

Ross and Manuel took a leap of faith with a 140ft free fall abseil into Manchester United’s Old Trafford stadium, while Zander battled mud, ice and 12-miles of gruelling obstacles as he completed the exhausting Tough Mudder (pictured).

To reach their fundraising goal, the Concert team will be digging out their cricket whites as they take on the Toft Taverners at the historic Toft Cricket Club, dusting off their irons for the annual Concert Golf Extravaganza and taking on the best the Cheshire business community has to offer at Softball.
