In commemoration of the previous 50 memorable years it is right and proper that our founders are properly remembered by the generous words of my father “This Country has been good to me, it`s great to be in a position to be able to give something back!” To this end, it was decided that we would raise £50,000:00 to be donated to THREE deserving charities, namely:-
- Good Hope Hospital Sepsis Care and awareness. (They saved my life).
- Teenage Cancer Trust, Birmingham Children`s Hospital.
- Birmingham Fireside Centre for the disadvantaged.
To achieve this target of £50,000:00, Mark declared that he would run 50 miles in differing races, (he`s no Forest Gump by any stretch of the imagination), as commemoration of 50 years in business, to be named “Coleman & Company Triple 50 Charity Fund”. The target has been exceeded with donations and Coleman’s contributions reaching a total just shy of £100,000. These monies were raised by management, staff and employees alike, who have wholehearted contributed their time and effort to the cause by, selflessly arranging and participating in many different events such as cake making, tuck shops, car wash days, dress down days, swear boxes (great success), sponsored runs, sponsored walks, whilst not forgetting an extremely successful boxing night. Given the austere times we live in this is a truly incredible achievement. It makes me very very proud.
The cheques will be presented to the nominated Charities on 20th April 2013 at a Gala Dinner Dance held at The Forest of Arden Hotel and Country Club, Warwickshire, in what promises to be a truly memorable night.
`The famous words of that never dying song are so realistically relative.
