Proudly supports its Charity of the Year, Tenovus Cancer Care

Our Charity & Community Support

As a responsible business, our company aim is to support charities and community projects which are key to the local communities in the regions where we have a regional presence in England and Wales.

In 2019, n-ergy proudly supports its Charity of the Year, Tenovus Cancer Care and the amazing work it carries out in the local community including a number of innovative projects ie. a mobile support unit, 15 choirs across Wales, a free support line (0808 808 1010) open 365 days of the year and the charity’s cancer research to support them to find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer.  Our Charity of the Year was chosen by our Head Office and Wales regional teams.

Our business donates corporate monthly contributions to its chosen Charity of the Year which is reviewed annually. In addition, our Head Office and regional teams organise a number of fundraising activities of their own either “in the office” or in their personal time to support with further fundraising.

What’s planned in 2019?

Penyfantimes5Challenge – Spring/Summer 2019

Our senior management team, Ashley Thomas and Sarah O’Mahoney are planning to climb Pen-y-fan five times in one day, sunrise to sunset. The challenge was originally planned for 2018 but has now been rescheduled for Spring/Summer 2019. The training had already started in 2018 but to find out more please keep an eye on out Twitter account for the latest updates..

Jolly Christmas Jumper Day – December 2018

We held our Jolly Christmas Jumper Day at n-ergy’s Head Office together with our regional Wales team on Wednesday, 12th December.  The monies raised from our fundraiser will support our Charity of the Year, Tenovus Cancer Care, helping them to support cancer patients and their loved ones in the community.

 

£100 raised from Dress-Down Day and Best Mountain-Themed Cake Competition on 22nd August 2018

We love a cake-bake in the office so it made sense for us to combine this with a Dress-down day to support Ash and Sarah with raising more sponsorship monies for the Penyfantimes5 Challenge. One of our assessors, Neil Moriarty was our champion baker this time with his amazing Penyfan cake! Thanks to everyone who got involved, it was a great day for raises monies and eating cake!

 

Tenovus Cancer Care (Spring 2018)

On Monday, 12th March we held our Really Welsh Bake-off with Chief Executive, Donna Turner-Kot doing the judging! here is how it all panned out:

When the Tenovus Cancer Care, Fundraising Manager met with the marketing team in the summer she brought along an excellent fundraising pack which was full of good ideas and posters.

As a result, Head Office and the Wales team were able to get their fundraising “off the starting blocks” with a Going for Gold Olympics Sweepstake in August, followed by a Go Pink day for Breast Awareness in October 2016 (see above photo) and Jolly Christmas Jumper Day in December.
