A group of energetic staff members in Armstrong Medical have fundraised to date approximately £7,000 for the Prince’s Trust.

In July, the Coleraine firm entered a team of enthusiastic staff members into the Prince’s Trust Corporate Charity Competition, Million Makers which encourages teams of employees to compete across the UK with a mission of turning a seed fund investment of £1,500 into a profit of £10,000.

Johnathan McLaughlin, Armstrong Medical’s Million Makers Team Leader said: “I am delighted to announce that to date the Armstrong Medical’s Million Maker’s team have fundraised approximately £7,000.

“This has been achieved through various fund raising events such as: a ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ Night in Magherabuoy House Hotel, Portrush, a sponsored cycle of the NW200 circuit, various car boot sales, collections in Asda, Coleraine and Ballymoney Town Centre and much more. ”

The Prince’s Trust provides practical help for those who need it most. They offer personal development opportunities that bring tangible and lasting benefits both to young people and the communities in which they live.

Jo Watson, Head of Private Sector for The Prince’s Trust stated: “Armstrong Medical have really showcased their talent with a series of diverse events, including car boot sales, a sponsored cycle, and a talent night that Simon Cowell would have been jealous of.”

“The creativity and enthusiasm shown by the team has been amazing. They have been unrelenting in their efforts and I am confident that they will surpass their £10k target, allowing us to support even more of the most disadvantaged young people across Northern Ireland.”
