Manchester-headquartered global employment law consultancy, Peninsula Group, has announced, they have raised £1m for Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity.
Peninsula Group announced its original commitment of £1 million in March 2019, but in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, which made the work of the hospital more challenging than ever, as well as impacting on charitable donations, Peninsula decided to double its pledge to £2 million.
During the past two years, Peninsula Group has built up a strong relationship with Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity, and employees have already raised this significant amount through ambitious fundraising activities such as the Great Manchester Run, abseiling a 19-storey building and even a trek up Mount Kilimanjaro. Funds have also been raised through payroll deductions which have been matched pound for pound in corporate donations.
Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital treats more than 280,000 patients every year and provides resources to make a difficult time easier for children and their families.
Peter Done, founder and Group Managing Director of Peninsula Group, said: “Peninsula Group are delighted to have reached the remarkable milestone of raising £1 million through our incredible fundraising efforts and the Group matching every donation made. We hope that this impressive donation will help Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity significantly.”
