Morgan Hunt raises 3,000 for youth mental health charity partner
An early gathering in all regions outlining all the day’s activities set the momentum for the day which included raffle ticket sales, director auctions, Bid2Win on quality items and a good old-fashioned & lsquo;car booty’.
Morgan Hunt employees dug deep and wide with every penny raised going towards helping improve the emotional and mental wellbeing of children and young people.
To keep teams focused and on track, a midday visit from YoungMinds to talk about their work definitely raised the bar on what was needed to get to the desired goal for the remainder of the afternoon.
“We’re thrilled with the outcome which exceeded all expectations and had all our regions participating. Big thank you to our suppliers for their auction item donations helping make our 1st #GivingTuesday a roaring success and our future charity legacy event”, says Lauren McLeod, marketing director at Morgan Hunt
Raising money for YoungMinds is good for business too. The sales & lsquo;power hour’ saw Morgan Hunt fund-matching various business activity with fantastic results”.
“For us, #GivingTuesday was an all-day employee event so we wanted to combine our work with having fun while doing good. It was fantastic that we could achieve these results and raise this money for our charity partner YoungMinds” says Sue Cooper, managing direcrtor of Morgan Hunt.
Cooper was seen in the afternoon making tea (and calls) after being & lsquo;sold’ to the highest bidder for her services in the directors’ auction.
Morgan Hunt who announced its new charity partner, YoungMinds in October this year after three months of research and voted for by employees, was delighted to have kicked off the relationship with this successful event.
