A DIGITAL marketing agency in Birstall has raised almost £400 for charity with a 12-hour team ‘badminton-athon’.
The team at Ascensor sported Christmas jumpers and played the sport all day on Friday December 18, raising funds which the company matched.
£360 was raised for the Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust, which supports 13-24-year old sufferers of cancer.
The funds raised by Ascensor are part of the charity’s Corporate Santa campaign which ensures that all young cancer patients in hospital over the festive season will receive Christmas presents.
Ascensor managing director Andrew Firth said: “We’re keen to support the local community in various ways throughout the year.
“This includes providing each member of the team a day out of the office to dedicate their time to a charity of their choice.
“Having met the team from Laura Crane, we saw how important this time of year is for the charity and we’re pleased to be able to help them do what they do best – improving the lives of young people facing cancer at a time which should be the most enjoyable.”
