Chesterfield-based Mentor Training is celebrating the success of its year-long charity campaign which raised £25,000.
Organised to mark the company’s 25th anniversary, Mission 25 has involved a variety of spectacular challenges for Mentor staff, as well as collection of donations from the company and its customers.
Throughout the year, Mentor donated 50p for every training day booked. Mentor team members also carried out their own sponsored missions, from senior account manager Claire Henshaw having her head shaved to Adele Coupe, Amy Alton, Charlotte Summerson and Norma Gartland taking on a sky dive in Nottingham.
Training manager Eddie Ainsworth completed a gruelling 50-mile cycle ride and systems manager Neil Rose challenged himself to complete a series of five half marathons.
The five causes receiving funds raised were Help for Heroes, Prostate Cancer UK, BBC Children in Need, The Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity based in Sheffield, and the Children’s Hospice Association Scotland.
"This has been a very uplifting way of celebrating our first 25 years in business,” says Richard Shore, Mentor’s MD. "We are very proud of the commitment our team has shown in supporting the five charities and we are grateful to the many people who have made donations.
