Every year, HURST organises various fundraising activities to support different local charities. This year, we’re fundraising for Mustard Tree - a charity that works with the impoverished and marginalised. Since 1994, Mustard Tree has transformed the lives of people in Greater Manchester who are trapped in poverty or homelessness, by enabling them to gain the skills and self-confidence they need to reach their full potential.
Last year, we scaled three of the country’s highest mountains and completed the 3 peaks challenge in 24 hours. Along with other fundraising activities, we managed to raise over £9,000 for the Seashell Trust which was our chosen charity for 2016.
This year, we’ve chosen to up the bar and we've set ourselves another heafty target to reach. In May, we hosted our "Bounce For Charity" event where we held a bake sale and a raffle with some great prizes. On 30th June, 15 of our team members also set off on a three day cycle starting in Hull, going through Belgium, Holland, France and back to Belgium.

We want to raise as much as possible for this great cause so in addition to the "Bounce For Charity" and the cycle challenge, we're also going to be doing a "rough sleep out" and we'll be hosting our annual Charity Football Tournament. We also have a tuck shop in the office and all proceeds will go to the Mustard Tree. Your help and support is vital for us to reach our target this year and any donations are greatly appreciated!
