A fleet management specialist has smashed its 20th anniversary fundraising target after raising £20,000 for 20 charities. Employees at Fleet Operations, one of the UK’s longest standing independent fleet and mobility management specialists, pulled out all the stops and took part in a variety of events throughout 2022 to help hit their goal.
“As part of our 20th anniversary celebrations, we wanted to give back to the charities that matter most to the company and its employees. It was an ambitious target but we knew our enthusiastic team would rise to the challenge,” said Richard Hipkiss, Managing Director at Fleet Operations.
Activities included walking more than 49 million steps (equivalent to circumnavigating the globe), a fancy dress hike up Snowdon, cycling 874-miles on three static bikes in just 24 hours (equal to travelling from Land’s End to John O’Groats), charity football matches and a marathon.
The money raised will be split between 20 local and national charitable organisations that were selected by Fleet Operations’ staff.
“We’re extremely proud of their grit and determination, and would like to extend a special thank you to acknowledge the generosity of those who donated. We are extremely grateful,” added Ross Jackson, CEO of Fleet Operations.
The 20 charities that will benefit from the fundraising campaign are DKMS, Birmingham Children’s Hospital, Douglas Macmillan Hospice, Macmillan Cancer Support, British Heart Foundation, Miscarriage Association, Peter Pan Centre, Donna Louise Hospice, Savana, Aspire Spinal Injury Charity, Dementia UK, Anthony Nolan Trust, RNLI, Asthma + Lung UK, MIND, Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, Four Paws International, Unbeatable Eva Foundation, St John Ambulance and Sarcoma UK.
