Sapper Vs Gunners Charity Event raises £50,000 for Autism Research Trust and the Felix fund.

On the 6th July 2016 MMS were delighted to be invited to attend the ‘Sappers V Gunners’ Army charity boxing event organised by the 101 (City of London) Engineer Regiment (Explosive Ordnance Disposal).

The event, that took place at Stamford Bridge, saw 400 guests entertained with 9 bouts of boxing alongside a 4 course meal and auction. The event was a huge success and raised a staggering £50,000 which beat their 2015 total of just over £41,000.

A special event organised to present the charities with the monies at Carver Barracks took place in February 2017 where Lieutenant Colonel Hawkins and Honorary Colonal Jools Holland, who is also a patron of the Autism Research Trust, were able to present each Charity with a staggering £25,000.

PRETTY MUDDY in all seasons!

On the 30th April Sally successfully completed the PRETTY MUDDY race for life event in aid of cancer research.

Sally raised a fantastic £426.72, just short of her £500 target. But wouldn’t it be great if we could still help her reach her target…… well don’t worry, you can still donate on Sally’s just giving page so if you haven’t had chance, pop on over and donate to this very worthy cause.

Sally would like to pass on her thanks to all those who sponsored her in the Race for Life, Pretty Muddy event.

MD to complete half marathon on 3rd April 2016

On the 3rd April 2016 our MD Andy Pitchford will be taking part in a Half Marathon.

Andy took up running in 2014 in order to raise money for The QMC Nottingham Children’s Intensive care unit, Ward E40 following a devastating accident involving 2 of his children. The first challenge he took on was a gruelling Half Marathon trilogy, which included PRAGUE – 5 APRIL 2014  DERBY – 8 JUNE 2014  and GLASGOW – 5 OCT 2014. Andy raised over £3300 for the cause and has since taken up running half marathons as a hobby!
