Sponsored Fundraising Activities
Supported by the Turner Group Charity Committee, employees and volunteers across the country have participated in a variety of fundraising activities.
Cadets Fundraise for Heart Machinery
In memory of his father, Frazer Cook, Mitchells Romsey Branch, organised a 15 mile fundraising hike to help raise money and awareness for the Heart Foundation and The Royal Brampton & Harefield Hospital.
In total, the Army Cadet Force, friends, family and Mitchell Powersystems/Turners Charity Committee, have raised enough money to buy an “Oxygen Saturation Monitor”.
“The machine we helped purchase, has been dedicated to My Dad, with a brass plaque which reads “in loving memory of Colin Cook”. I feel proud that his legacy of “Selfless Commitment” and “Helping Others” continues in his absence”. Frazer Cook.
Running for the Heroes
Based at Mitchell’s Sutton Branch, Dave Joynes took on the very hardy 26 miles to run the London Marathon, raising funds for Help for Heroes in a very impressive 3 hours! With the support of his colleagues and the Turner Charity Committee, Dave managed to raise £780. Very well done Dave.
