Plumbmaster, a leading supplier to the plumbing and heating industry in Northern Ireland, is doing its part to help raise much-needed funds for Addiction NI.
Devastatingly, covid-19 has forced many charities to cancel their fundraising activities throughout 2020/21 and left them experiencing difficulties accessing much-needed funds. Committed to lending their support, Plumbmaster, part of the Haldane Group, launched their ‘Step Away with Addiction NI’ Challenge and raised a total of £3,000 for Addiction NI.
The initiative encouraged employees across Northern Ireland and England to work together in teams of four to achieve the maximum number of steps over the month of March. With a total of 23 teams and over 90 participants, employees walked a combined total of 36,876,533 steps, the equivalent to 19,047 miles in just 31 days.
Eamonn McCarthy, Plumbmaster Director said, “I am absolutely delighted with the uptake in the Steps Challenge. It brought serious competition within the teams and a healthy and clearer mind-set for all those who participated – as well as raising vital money for an extremely worthwhile cause. I congratulate each and every person on their efforts, especially the winners.”
