Mansfield Pollard team help Bradford children’s charity One In A Million reach their goals!
One In A Million Corporate Partner Mansfield Pollard raised an incredible £1,355 through two innovative fundraising initiatives, to support our work amongst children and young people living in disadvantaged communities of Bradford.
The Bentley Cup 2022
On Friday 30th September 2022 two teams from Mansfield Pollard’s two production sites, Parry Lane and Rook Lane played 90 minutes of competitive football in torrential conditions to compete in the annual ‘Bentley Cup’ charity football game. The match raised £675, with over 40 players using their free company charity day. Many congratulations to Parry Lane who ran out 7-3 winners to claim the cup back from reigning holders Rook Lane. We would like to say thank you to everyone who were involved in organising and playing in the Bentley Cup, to all employees who supported by buying raffle tickets and donating prizes.
During December, the staff at Mansfield Pollard generously donated their Christmas party deposits to One In A Million, raising an impressive £680. Thank you for your valued support!
Kam Dhillon, HR Manager at Mansfield Pollard said, “We are really pleased to fundraise for such a great cause and I know how hard that the One In A Million team has been working to support the community – I applaud you!”.
