Fleet Alliance has beaten the target for its inaugural charity ball by raising more than £25,000 for two cancer charities, Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centres and the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice.
The monies raised from the evening, which was held at the at the Glasgow Marriott hotel and attended by Fleet Alliance customers, suppliers, local businesses and staff, will be split equally between the two charities. Entertainment was provided by Scottish comedian, Sanjeev Kohli.
“The night exceeded even our best expectations,” said Fleet Alliance managing director, Martin Brown, and we would like to thank all those attending for their kind and generous donations."
“Over the last five years we have raised in excess of £100,000 for our nominated charity partners with Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centres being the main beneficiary, thanks to the efforts of our customers, suppliers and employees.
Brown added: “Staff here at Fleet Alliance have cycled, run, skydived and hiked their way – with the generous support of clients and suppliers – to an amazing charity fund-raising total of £75,000 in five years. Now, with the monies raised from our inaugural charity ball, we have beaten the £100,000 barrier. It’s a truly remarkable effort.”
