Make it happen
For 15 years we've been dedicated to making a positive impact in our community.
Of course we’re all about results, but at every stage of the journey it’s also been incredibly important to give back. To mark our 15th birthday, we're stepping up our efforts by raising £15,000 for five great causes.
And we need your help to make it happen.Donate now
We’ve put together a calendar of sponsored physical challenges and sporting and social events to help us reach our target, and created a GoFundMe page as a central fundraising platform.
As well as office-based fundraising activities there are plenty of opportunities for clients, suppliers, fellow marketing professionals and other backers to get involved.
In February, our first major challenge saw 10 team members aiming to cycle a combined 1,500 miles in 15 working days 🚴
The miles were completed in the gym, at home and on the road - and we reached our goal early!Donate Now
Highland canoe challenge
What an adventure! In June, Andy and Gary King (of Tendo) took part in a 54-mile canoe challenge across Lochs Arkaig, Lochy and Oich in the Scottish Highlands. That’s more than two marathon lengths of paddling!Donate now
In July six of our A-team took on the mighty Total Warrior challenge. They fought through 12 gruelling kilometres of fire, ice, water and mud, in one of the UK’s biggest obstacle course events … and we smashed it!Donate Now
Here’s what else the team is going to be up to as we aim to smash our target!
- - The Yorkshire Three Peaks
- - Man vs Food
- - Bake sales
- - Swear jar days
Five amazing causes
Whether it’s fundraising or providing pro bono and subsidised services, we actively encourage our team to support causes that are close to their hearts.
The money we raise over the next year will be split equally between the five charities, each of which holds personal significance to members of the Ascensor team.
The Alzheimer's Society funds research into the cause, cure, care and prevention of dementia; Macmillan Cancer Support offers emotional, practical, physical and financial support for people living with cancer; Yorkshire Air Ambulance provides a life-saving emergency service to five million people across the county; the Stroke Association works to prevent stroke and campaigns for the rights of stroke survivors and Simon on the Streets is an independent Leeds charity helping the homeless and vulnerable.
