Team story

[p][b][span=text-decoration: underline;]About the Psigma Foundation[/span][/b][/p][p]We take pride and enjoy contributing to the community and encourage our colleagues to participate in supporting our chosen charities.[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]This year signifies the second year since the formal incorporation of the Psigma Foundation (‘the Foundation’). This is an independent charitable foundation that focuses our corporate philanthropic activity in support of small and personal charities, nominated each year by our colleagues.[/p][p]After a great deal of consideration we chose to formally support the following charities for 2016/17.[/p][ul][li]Restart Lives ([url=http://restartlives.org/about/]http://restartlives.org/about/[/url])[/li][li]The Cure Parkinson's Trust ([url=https://www.cureparkinsons.org.uk/]https://www.cureparkinsons.org.uk/[/url])[/li][li]NAIT Babies ([url=http://www.naitbabies.org/]http://www.naitbabies.org/[/url])[/li][/ul][p][hr/][/p][p][b][span=text-decoration: underline;]Past Fundraising Endeavours during 2016/17:[/span][/b][/p][p][b]Charity Darts Tournament, City[/b][/p][p]In October, Psigma employees gathered around the oche for Round 2 of the Psigma Foundation Darts Tournament. Emotions were high as competitors attempted to regain the scintillating form seen in last year’s tournament.[/p][p]The event continues to be a fantastic success with great fun had by all and we all look forward to next year’s event in which teams will again hotly compete for the coveted Psigma Dart’s Shield.[/p][p]It was a fantastic event for both players and spectators. We are pleased to have raised £790 for the Foundation.[/p][p][b]Edinburgh Office - Sponsored Bike Ride, Newcastle to Edinburgh[/b][/p][p]Simon Kay, Tim Wishart and Richard Hyder of Psigma’s Edinburgh-based team chose to salute their colleagues’ recent achievements and raise further funds by cycling 167 miles from Punter Southall’s office in Newcastle to Psigma’s Edinburgh office over the 5th and 6th of August.[/p][p]Against the odds and despite mixed weather and a lot of hills, the team’s initial enthusiasm was sustained by a steady supply of bananas, ham sandwiches and Haribo.  This was delivered to us by our ‘wing man’ David Robertson, who ably manned the support vehicle and kept the team going with much-needed encouragement.  Our intrepid trio tackled a 1000ft climb into the Moorfoot hills into Fife, from there it was downhill all the way to Edinburgh where they were greeted by a visiting troupe of Korean tribal drummers drumming away right outside the 7 Castle Street office.[/p][p]The ride raised around £3,000 so far toward our chosen charities.  [/p][p][b]London Office - Sponsored Bike Ride, Cherbourg to France[/b][/p][p]Over three days from 1 June, 12 Psigma colleagues were challenged to cycle nearly 300 km from Cherbourg to Rouen in order to raise funds for our three chosen charities. They did so with typical grit, determination, and a touch of ‘je ne sais quoi’….[/p][p]All riders are now safely back ensconced in the office, and the Psigma Foundation is glad to report that a current total of nearly £6,000 has been raised as a result of the event.[/p][p]The team were supported and motivated by a support team ‘par excellence’. Our CEO and Chair of Trustees Mr. John Howard-Smith helped nourish our riders with home-made stir fry’s and steak sandwiches whilst our very own ‘white van men’, Mr. Adam Side and Mr. Rupert Hunter.[/p][p][b]2017 London Marathon[/b][/p][p]On Sunday 23 April, three brave souls from Psigma’s London office, along with Psigma veteran Tim Gregory, fearlessly took on the Virgin London Marathon.[/p][p]Harry Schofield, investment manager, agreed to run the marathon for the first time after ‘a few too many’ with Tim. They both ran for Cure Parkinson’s Trust, part of the Psigma Foundation and a charity also close to Harry’s heart.[/p][p]Nathan Hull, business development executive, had the privilege of being the first person to represent Age UK Essex in the marathon. Despite rupturing his knee at mile three, Nathan heroically soldiered on through the remaining 23 miles, completing the race in a successful, albeit painful, 7 hours.[/p][p]Joining them was Andy Bresnahan from the operations team, running for the Psigma Foundation which supports three small charities nominated by Psigma colleagues.[/p][p]Between them, the team raised over £10,000 for their chosen charities. Huge congratulations to Tim, Harry, Nathan and Andy![/p][p][b]Sleep Out, Kensington[/b][/p][p]On Thursday 9th March 2017 our colleague, Martin Van Zyl participated in a sleep out, the aim of the event was to raise funds and create awareness so that Restart can expand their operation to rehome and create employment opportunities for any homeless person.[/p][p]The volunteers only had access to a sleeping bag and a piece of cardboard outside the location, St Augustine Queens Gate, Kensington, which is also where Restart hosts a meal every Saturday evening. 25 people took part in the event with 4 volunteers taking watch through the night.[/p][ul][li][b]Sleep Out, Kensington raised in excess of £2,000[/b][/li][li][b]Charity Darts Tournament, City raised £1,600[/b][/li][li][b]Charity Football Tournament, Coram’s Field raised £1,426[/b][/li][li][b]Quiz Night, Walkabout Embankment raised £1,252[/b][/li][/ul][p]Our three chosen charities are extremely grateful and appreciative of all our fundraising efforts. The monies raised is being put to excellent use. Look out for our fund raising summary later in the year.[/p][hr/][p][b]Thank you for visiting us at Virgin Money Giving.  Through this page, you can sponsor us in our charitable efforts and donations will be processed quickly and efficiently to our chosen charities.
