Yorkshire based Fusion IT Management has held a “Superhero Challenge Day” to raise money for their partnered charity, the Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust.
Fusion provides proactive IT support to clients across the UK and beyond. They specialise in working with the legal sector and have a proven track-record in transforming professional services within organisations. Fusion combines IT solutions, specialist support and bespoke system development into one, to provide a single, seamless IT service tailored to their client’s businesses and working practices.
Last month, Fusion employees and guests dressed as superheroes for the day and took part in various video game battles including Mariokart, Tekken, FIFA and Tiny Tower, amongst others, in order to raise money for the Laura Crane Trust. As well as a diverse range of outfit choices, there was also a great range in the age of the Superheroes at the event – the youngest being Managing Director Jamie’s 6-week old son, Wilfred, dressed as Superman.
The Laura Crane Trust also based in Huddersfield, is the only UK charity funding medical research specifically into cancer affecting teenagers and young adults so therefore they heavily rely on businesses such as Fusion to support them.
Jamie Watson, managing director, said: “We are thrilled that the event proved such a success. All our staff thoroughly enjoyed our themed day and being challenged in our “beat the geeks” themed games. We are delighted that all our clients, friends and staff have donated so generously and we really appreciate all the support we have had with our efforts to raise funds for such a good cause.”
In total, Fusion managed to raise an amazing £233 for the Laura Crane Trust. This is a charity Fusion are passionate about supporting, and although organised fundraising days are a lot of fun, the most rewarding part of it all for Fusion employees is being able to help such a great cause.
