Catermasters raises £27,400 for Teenage Cancer Trust

Catermasters has raised £27,400 for Teenage Cancer Trust in the first 16 months of a two-year plan to raise £50,000 for the charity.

Initiatives have included joint managing directors Richard Moody and Nigel Johnson going back to the kitchen floor for a day, cupcake sales and an evening function and charity auction to celebrate Catermasters' 20th birthday. Staff and customers have climbed Snowdonia in Wales and there has been a number of sponsored bike rides.

In addition, the caterer introduced a ‘Club 100' lottery where staff voluntarily donate £2 each month from their wages and are entered into a draw to win a first prize of £100 and a second prize of £50.

Moody said: "Many of our staff and customers have gone out of their way to raise money and the effort they have put in has been unbelievable and truly inspiring.

"I think the remaining months in our fundraising schedule will be a lot of fun and we're looking forward to raising even more money for a wonderful charity."

Annmarie Carey, Teenage Cancer Trust regional fundraising manager - north, added: "The fantastic amount that's already been raised shows how much hard work has gone into staging so many great events and also the wonderful commitment from all the staff at Catermasters and their customers."
