ID Medical's comic strip for Learning Disability Week 2013

We have recently launched an impressive internal fundraising programme to support and bring a proud donation to employee voted charities, all of which are within the healthcare sector, as well as some NHS Trusts. Together we will make the difference.

Milton Keynes, UK (PRWEB UK) 26 August 2013

To fully embrace the ‘Who is your superhero?’ theme, ID Medical’s Mental Health division, a true advocate of fundraising, planned ‘donate to play’ Ping-Pong competitions during lunchtimes throughout the week for employees to flaunt their skills against a dark villain, Darth Vader. On the final fundraising day, the whole Mental Health team exposed their superhero identities and performed a ‘POW’er-up routine to Black Lace – Superman.

Fundraising for health charities is a significant factor in ID Medical’s Corporate Responsibility (CSR) policy. For Learning Disability Week 2013, ID Medical collectively raised a fantastic £169.75 and all proceeds will go to mencap – the leading voice of learning disability.

ID Medical’s head of marketing and CSR ambassador, Caryn Cooper, concluded “We have recently launched an impressive internal fundraising programme to support and bring a proud donation to employee voted charities, all of which are within the healthcare sector, as well as some NHS Trusts. Together we will make the difference.”

mencap organises and promotes this event annually, with this year’s key aim being to strengthen networks of support in local communities by funding events that bring families affected by learning disability together.
