On Friday 04th May 2018, our very own Stephanie O’Keefe kindly signed four of her colleagues up for an abseil challenge in aid of Cash for Kids. The charity provides support for children aged 0-18 years who are disabled, disadvantaged, or suffering from abuse or neglect.
The challenge was to abseil down the Radio City Tower in Liverpool. Martyn Simm, Keith Cokersol, Hannah Duffy and Paul Acton bravely took up Steph’s challenge and the fund raising commenced. There was one surprise…the abseil had to be done dressed up as a Superhero!
Amazingly, the team raised an incredible £4,117, topping the leader board in the process. As a result of their efforts, the guys were invited down to the Radio City tower on Thursday 07th June, to present Cash for Kids with a cheque. After delivering the Cheque, Anthea Harris and Katie Harrison from Cash for Kids gave the team a tour of the tower, which was really memorable and less nerve wracking than the last time they were up there!
Anthea Harris at Cash for Kids said, “We’re so thankful to everyone from HE Simm; to those that took part in the abseil for Superhero Day and those that sponsored them. £4117 is an incredible amount to raise and put HE Simm at number one on our fundraisers leader board! Superhero Day raised over £118,000 in total, and we’ll be using those funds to support disadvantaged and disabled children in the community. We do this by giving grants to local children’s organisations, charities, schools & hospices. Our latest grant giving round benefitted over 10,000 children across Liverpool, Wirral, Merseyside and the North West!”
Well done to Martyn, Keith, Hannah, Paul and of course Steph. It is absolutely amazing what you have achieved and really fits with our company values. Importantly, this would not have been possible with out the generosity of all our contributors. A huge thank you from us and on behalf of all the children this money will go to help
