Ardonagh Raises £70,000 for Act and Mind
On 5 October 2018, The Ardonagh Group held the second installment of Go Green Day – a nation-wide fundraiser supporting the Group’s registered charity, Ardonagh Community Trust (ACT), and national charity partner Mind.
This year it was dubbed ‘Go Green Day 2.0 - the challenge edition’, a day filled with creativity, passion and community spirit as 6,000 employees from across the UK came together dressed in green to demonstrate what it means to be part of the Ardonagh family – raising money for two fantastic causes.
An impressive £70,000 (and counting) was raised throughout the day thanks to the generosity of teams and offices of all sizes, up £9000 on last year’s grand total.
From mechanical bull rides and vows of silence, to the surprise release of Ardonagh’s first charity single, it was an inspiring and memorable display of the collective power of this diverse family of companies.
As a result, £35,000 will be donated directly to Mind, and £35,000 will go towards ACT, all with the aim of creating stronger, brighter communities across the UK and much needed support, services and education for those suffering from mental health problems.
Funds raised was not the only figure tallied from the day, with many other notable achievements recorded through a creative range of activities:
