Training Synergy exceeds charity target

Training company Training Synergy has raised over £12,500 for Macmillan Cancer Support - its 'charity of the year' in 2006 - along with £1,500 for children's charity Whizz-Kidz.

Daniel Hanlon, Training Synergy's managing director, said: "Our target for the year was to raise £5,000. Being a company of only 120 employees, we're particularly pleased to have raised nearly three times that amount."

During the year, Training Synergy employees raised money in a variety of ways including a charity auction, a treasure hunt through the City of London, 'dress down Fridays' and a 'Halloween Fancy Dress' party. Employees also took part in a triathlon and the London Marathon.

Henry Shelford, corporate fundraising manager for Macmillan Cancer Support, said: "Synergy was a key corporate sponsor of Macmillan Cancer Support throughout 2006 and we are thrilled that our partnership will continue throughout 2007. The range and breadth of fundraising across Synergy has been outstanding."

Although Training Synergy is continuing its pledge to support Macmillan Cancer Relief in 2007, the company says it is also considering enlarging its corporate social responsibility policy to embrace supporting other worthy charities.
