Festive Fundraising at Edgetech

Edgetech, a Quanex company, supported the Myton Hospice on 20th December by taking part in the Wear a Santa Suit to Work Day hosted by the charity. Employees at the Coventry office and manufacturing facility nominated each other to wear Santa suits and one employee proved to be very popular – Managing Director, Andy Jones. With nominations rolling in Andy saw an opportunity to take the fundraising to the next level.

Andy explains: “When nominations reached £75 I joked that if they could raise £100 I would wear a Mrs Claus outfit, and if they raised £1000 I would also have my legs waxed to complete the outfit. Unfortunately for me the team took my offer seriously and began a campaign to raise the funds. Thanks to the generosity and support of the team at Edgetech and our friends in the industry I am pleased to say that we raised £1556.40.

“There were 19 male Santa’s and I kept my end of the bargain as Mrs Claus. There’s photographic and video proof available. I would also like to thank Eden Beauty Salon of Whitley, Coventry for kindly providing their waxing services on the day.

“The Myton Hospice is a local charity that is close to my heart and to many of us in the local area. It provides high quality, specialist care to terminally ill people and ensures families are supported both through and after this difficult time. They help almost 4,000 people each year in Coventry & Warwickshire through their hospices, via their patient and family support services and in the community. To continue providing care Myton Hospice has to raise almost £8 million each year and wouldn’t be able to operate without donations. We are pleased to have been able to support them as they continue their vital mission.”

Rosie Houghton, Corporate Fundraising Support Office at Myton Hospice who attended on the day comments: “We would like to say a huge thank you to staff from Edgetech for getting into the festive spirit and wearing their Santa suits to work to raise money for Myton. £1,556.40 is a fantastic amount and the money raised will make a huge difference to the patients and families we care for. We hope to work with them again in the future.”
