SDL Group has smashed its £150,0000 charity target by raising £182,500 with its partners for its chosen charity, The Donna Louise Hospice.
Fundraising started in January 2018 at the company’s annual conference when they announced that all money raised would be matched by the SDL Group.
Employees and business partners have rallied behind the Group’s fundraising efforts, one of the most successful was through charity auctions. Benefitting from the skills of SDL Auctions’ auctioneer, Andrew Parker, £36,000 was raised from the SDL Group black-tie event during the annual conference and SDL Auctions’ Red and Black Ball.
Paul Gratton, CEO, said, “When we set this formidable target of raising £150,000 for The Donna Louise, we weren’t even sure if we would reach the target, but we were determined to give it a go!
“I am overwhelmed and proud that we managed to top the target and on behalf of everyone at SDL, I say a massive thank you to everyone that supported our vision. We are delighted that the money we have raised will make a huge difference to such a remarkable charity.”
