EPE’s Vicki Mitchell raises money for Macmillan Cancer Charity with Brave the Shave

Earlier this month, EPE’s Vicki Mitchell, Warehouse Operative participated in Brave the Shave to raise money for the Macmillan Cancer charity.

Vicki decided on Brave The Shave for the charity as a way to thank Macmillan for all they do to support, not only those suffering with cancer, but their families too.  Vicki herself experienced the help the charity provides when her own family members had cancer and this helped drive her desire to give back and raise money for MacMillan through Brave the Shave.

Vicki raised over £375 for Macmillan through sponsors and we at EPE are happy to have supported her in raising money for such a well-deserving charity.

A Thank You from Mind

This week we received a letter from Mind one of the two charities we raised money for last month and we would like to share the letter with you all.
 
On behalf of Mind I wanted to thank you and your colleagues at EPE International for your generous donation of £498. We are incredibly grateful for your support. With your help, we can help people like Adam:
 
“Without Mind I wouldn’t be here today.  Mind helped me see my positives, my strengths and how my future wasn’t as solitary and scary as I had thought.  They helped me turn my life around and manage what I now know is my bipolar.”
 
Please pass on our thanks and gratitude for nominating Mind and donating to us as your support will help us improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding of mental health issues. 
 
Last year, our network of over 140 local Minds in England and Wales supported 390,000 people through services such as counselling, back to work mentoring, and therapy. More than 60,000 people spoke to our dedicated helplines, and 16.7 million people visited the mental health information pages of our Mind website. 41,000 people received direct support through our online community Elefriends, which users describe as ‘life-saving’.
 
We hope to continue working to help such worthy causes as Mind in the future and are grateful that there are charities such as these working so hard to support and improve people’s lives.

EPE’s Fundraising Bonanza for Children In Need 2019, featuring Special Guest Judge Steve Marsh from Tefal!

The EPE team has really been getting into the fundraising spirit for Children In Need 2019 with an in office Bake Off style competition; where the participants had their creations judged in a blind taste test on taste and appearance by our special guest judge Steve Marsh, Channel Controller for Groupe SEB; who very kindly also purchased some of the cakes after the competition to aid our fundraising efforts for this wonderful cause.

The winner of our Bake Off competition was Sophie Stead, Purchase Controller at EPE; with Natasha Copeman, Head of Internal Sales and Debra Nichols, Internal Sales Manager – Electrical Wholesalers coming in at a joint second place. Take a look all of the delicious bakes below.

After the competition the cakes were then sold in our head office, as you can imagine they were sold pretty quickly. The fun didn’t stop there; the team also took part in the Annual Children In Need Duck Race Sweepstake 2019; the competition was rife. With prizes up for grabs and the motivation to do some good for a good cause everyone was eager to cheer on their pun-tastic duck to the finish line. Though in the end the duck known only as Beakwell Tart won the race, albeit without its cherry and Iwona Grabowska, Accounts Administrator won the sweepstake.

In total the EPE team raised £251.08 that will go to the Children in Need charity.

Here at EPE we’re always looking for ways we can give back to the community; watch this space for more fundraising activities on the run up to Christmas!
