A charity which helps to tackle homelessness and poverty across Greater Manchester has received a cash boost of more than £9,000 from accounting and business advisory firm HURST.

Mustard Tree was HURST’s charity of the year for 2017 and staff raised a total of £9,560.65 for the organisation, smashing their target by more than £2,500.

They undertook fundraising activities ranging from a staff sleep out and a cycle ride through Belgium, the Netherlands and France to a football tournament, raffles and bake sales.

Mustard Tree provides food, furniture, clothing and training for people across the region. It has its headquarters in Ancoats, Manchester, and sites in Eccles and Little Hulton, Salford.

Sophie Appleton, the charity’s corporate partnership manager, said: “HURST has been a truly valued corporate partner of Mustard Tree. The staff have been innovative with their fundraising ideas, which were inclusive of all. The team were fully behind our cause and the money they have raised will make a big difference.”

HURST partner Simon Brownbill said: “It’s been a pleasure working with Mustard Tree over the past year. Homelessness is a big problem in Manchester and, as a firm, it was really important to us to give back to the community and make a difference to those trapped in poverty.

“We’re extremely pleased with the amount we have raised, and we thank everyone who helped us to exceed our target of £7,000.

“It’s great to know that these funds will enable Mustard Tree to continue supporting those in need in and around Greater Manchester.”

HURST staff have chosen MedEquip4Kids as the firm’s charity of the year for 2018.

MedEquip4Kids raises money to provide paediatric medical equipment and facilities for hospitals and community health teams.

Simon added: “MedEquip4Kids plays a vital role in helping to improve the health of children and babies across the UK and we are looking forward to playing our part in assisting the charity with its great work.”

I mean, I know it was my option to learn, but I really thought youd have something fascinating to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you might fix in the event you werent too busy looking for attention.
