Employees at chartered accountants and business advisers, Price Bailey’s Bishops Stortford office, have reached their £200 target to gunge one of the firm’s partners all in the name of charity.
Either Gary Miller, Catherine Willshire or Tony Pennison will face a gunging from the rest of the team after being set the challenge to raise money for Price Bailey’s charity partner, Action Medical Research.
Their work colleagues, contacts, family and friends have been working tirelessly, donating to seal their fate and sacrifice one of the partners at the firm’s annual fundraising day on Friday 14 February.
The practice-wide fundraising day is the latest effort in a two-year fundraising campaign for Action Medical Research and specifically in support of their ‘Saving Tiny Lives’ campaign. The campaign is focused on generating funds in order to carry out research into reducing premature births. Around 60,000 babies are born prematurely in the UK, and sadly 1,000 tragically die making it the biggest cause of death in babies; for those that do survive, it’s also the leading cause of disability.
Gary Miller, Partner at Price Bailey, said: “Though we are all nervous about the prospect of being gunged, the thought of raising money for such a worthy cause outweighs the negative feelings towards this challenge! We are very grateful to everyone who has donated, and we are looking forward to seeing which one of us will be facing the slime.”
James King, Corporate Social Responsibility Partner at Price Bailey, said: “We are very excited to see that our partners have volunteered to be gunged at our annual fundraising day. We have managed to raise over £90,000 for Action Medical Research, and we are hoping that our fundraising day will increase this amount and beat our fundraising record, making our 2018/2020 partnership, our most successful one yet!.”
The partner who receives the most donations before Friday 14 February will be gunged. If you would like to donate, please visit https://price-bailey.charitycheckout.co.uk/profile and in your comment, please mention which partner you would like to be gunged.
