‘Swashbuckling’ employees from the Group, donned pirate costumes and over 100 Tunbridge Wells based staff tackled pirate challenges including ‘walk the plank’ and a pedalo ‘sea’ test! A number of other fundraising activities also took place on the day at different office locations across the country, including a raffle, cake sale, bingo and a silent auction.
Furthermore, 100 lucky employees won prizes including a two-night luxury break and £500 Red Letter Day voucher.
The money rasied will go to a number of different causes including The Fire Fighters Charity, The Dog’s Trust, MIND and Ashgate Hospicecare.
Lizzie Smith-Foreman, Director of Group Marketing and Communications for Markerstudy Group, said: “‘It was great to see our ‘shipmates’ in Tunbridge Wells putting the ‘fun’ into fundraising and raising an incredible amount for charities close to many people’s hearts. Our annual event is the perfect way to reward our staff for their hard work and raise money for good causes at the same time!”
