Altrincham HQ have been shortlisted for the Corporate Social Responsibility Excellence Award in the Greater Manchester Business Awards
Over the past 3 years Altrincham HQ have launched Altrincham VS Cancer for the Christie and the Back To School Challenge for the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital. This year the 4th Altrincham VS Cancer fundraiser is expected to take the total raised for the Christie to over £10,000Alex
McCann of Altrincham HQ says:
“The community is a massive part of what we do at Altrincham HQ. We’ve always said we’re 50% Business and 50% Community. I organised the Altrincham VS Cancer events because The Christie personally helped close friends of mine and I wanted to give something back. With The Back To School Challenge it was seeing online what the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital were doing for kids in Greater Manchester.
I think everyone has duty to help others. We might have a business and an audience, but our Corporate Social Responsibility Policy simply is to Be Human and Care.
I’m so proud to be recognised on the shortlist for what we do locally for these great charities. There’s a lot of local businesses that get involved with both events and it really is a group effort. The Christie and The Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital are 2 of the biggest charities in Manchester and their work impacts everyone in Greater Manchester”
In both 2014 and 2015 Altrincham VS Cancer was announced as one of the Top 3% of Justgiving Fundraising Campaigns and the announcement on the Top 2016 Campaigns is imminent. The Awards Dinner itself will take place on the 19th May 2017 at the Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel Manchester, one of Manchester’s finest City Centre Hotels.
