Staff put minds to fundrais­ing

Sunday Sun - - News -

SIEMENS em­ploy­ees from Trans­mis­sion Ser­vices based in Monk­ton raised £5,940 for the men­tal health char­ity Mind – sur­pass­ing their to­tal raised in 2017 by more than £1,000.

Events in­cluded a fundrais­ing chal­lenge called Grow50, where groups were given £50 and needed to plan ac­tiv­i­ties to in­crease it. Through a fete and a sports day, two Monk­ton teams raised £750 from just £50 each. Fur­ther ac­tiv­i­ties in­cluded a bake sale and quiz day, which raised a fur­ther £337.

A team of 11 from Siemens Monk­ton site raised over £1,700 for their par­tic­i­pa­tion in Leeds To­tal War­rior, a 12km ob­sta­cle course, in June.

Siemens matched the money raised from all ac­tiv­i­ties un­der­taken to help reach the £5940 to­tal.
