2MV supports Portsmouth children’s hospice with TPN Charity Draw winnings
“We held a ballot amongst the team and these two charities came up repeatedly,” says sales manager Graham Truckel. “Our MD Jim Tyler and 2MV have donated to Naomi House before. It provides expert hospice care for seriously ill children and young people and their families.”
Although 2MV could choose to use half of its £1,000 winnings to reward its staff, the team voted to give it all to charity.
Noami House and Jacksplace hospices provide expert care to more than 325 life-limited and life-threatened children, young people and their families from Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset, Berkshire, West Sussex, Surrey and the Isle of Wight.
Macmillan Cancer Support provides practical, emotional and personal support to people affected by cancer every year. The charity is there to support people during treatment, help with work and money worries, and listen when people need to talk about their feelings.
TPN — THE Pallet Network has an ongoing commitment to fundraising. It has more than 100 Member companies around the UK, each of which pledges £10 a month to the charity ‘pot’. At least half of the money must go to a charitable cause of the winning Member’s choice, although they are allowed to use part or all of the remainder to reward their TPN teams.
TPN MD Mark Duggan says: “We are very proud of our Charity Draw initiative. Our network is made up of more than 100 of the best transport companies in the UK and all of them are very committed to working in their local communities and all have favourite charities they support.
“The TPN Charity Draw is a way we can work collectively to raise funds and awareness for charities, but still keep that local connection between our Members and the causes that matter to them,” he says.
One regional Member of the TPN network will be randomly chosen each month to receive the pot and donate at least £500 to a cause of their choice.
