Magpas fundraiser takes off at Alconbury Campus Incubator

09/05/2014

With coffee and cakes in abundance, plus an extremely tempting selection of tombola prizes, Businesses at Alconbury Enterprise Campus raised an impressive £500 for lifesavers, Magpas - The Emergency Medical Charity, on Friday (9 May).

The fundraising lunch held in the development’s new Incubator building was an enormous success. Rebecca Britton, from the Campus owners and developers Urban&Civic, explained:

“This is the second event we have done where we bring together businesses on site to meet each other, catch up and share the latest information and raise some money for good causes. We have been talking to Magpas for some time to see how we can help support the great work they do, and this is just one way we wanted to play our part.”

Antonia Brickell, Head of Communications at Magpas, said, “We are immensely grateful to Urban&Civic and all those who joined us at the event, for supporting Magpas and for spreading the word about our crucial service. The funds raised will make a key difference, enabling our charity funded enhanced Doctor and Paramedic teams to carry on attending seriously ill or injured patients by air or by land”.

Antonia went on to say, “Many thanks to Rebecca and her team for helping us to save lives in Cambridgeshire, the East of England and beyond”.

The event featured information stands from partners who work with Urban&Civic including Cambridgeshire Travel for Work, Groundwork UK and the “route to work” Grassroots project and a mouth-watering array of savoury and sweet creations from the Campus’ caterer - Chestnut Farm House Creations, drinks provided by Liquidline and other goodies donated from Campus businesses.
