Come Fly With Us – HR GO Balloon Race Raises Thousands
Kent founded Recruitment Group, HR GO plc, is delighted to announce it has raised £8,000 for Make-A-Wish Foundation UK.
The company celebrated this huge achievement at the launch of their Balloon Race charity event which was organised to raise the much needed funds for this well deserving charity.
5,000 balloons were released into the skies of Kent from Hamstreet on Thursday 22nd August as a start to the Balloon Race where 50 members of staff from HR GO’s head office, friends and families attended to experience this magnificent spectacle.
HR GO plc celebrates its 55th anniversary this year and wanted to mark this milestone by running a campaign which could make a real difference to people who need support. The company is committed to raising a huge £10,000 for the charity and will continue to raise funds until they reach this target.
Paul Broderick, HR GO plc Managing Director, comments “After a phenomenal six weeks of hard work and dedication from our employees selling the balloon tickets any way and every where they could, organising raffles and attending school fetes and music festivals to raise money, I am proud to say our endless commitment has paid off and we have raised an amazing amount for Make-A-Wish!”
Paul continues “And, I must say a heartfelt thanks for all the support we have received from our clients, suppliers, local and national businesses many of whom made fantastic monetary and prize donations which all contributed to our success.
“The balloon race is a great way to celebrate both our special milestone and the lives of all those inspirational children who are sadly affected by life threatening conditions -Make-A-Wish is a charity doing remarkable things to help brighten these children’s lives”, continues Paul.
Great prizes will be awarded to the people whose balloons travel the furthest distance. First prize is £1,000 cash! Prizes are also available to finders of the balloons. There is still time to support HR GO in their quest. For further information or to make a donation to Make-A-Wish please visit: www.justgiving.com/HRGOballoonrace.
