CSR

At E3R, we’re dedicated to giving something back through our CSR and charity efforts.

Charity Partner 2019 – 2021:
Forget Me Not Children Hospice

 

E3R is proud to be a charity partner of the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice
Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice supports children with life-shortening conditions and their families through their Hospice at Home Service and also their fantastic hospice buildings – Russell House in Huddersfield and Grace’s Place in Bury. Right across West Yorkshire and North Manchester, they provide outstanding nursing care, days out, listening, respite care, therapy, and even assist with domestic chores.

 

Christmas 2021

This Christmas instead of sending Christmas cards, we have once again made a donation to Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice. We have also supported the charity with their Christmas Raffle. For more details on how to get involved please visit: https://www.forgetmenotchild.co.uk/

Dragon Boat Race 2021 

E3R Warriors were back in business, doing what they do best – competing whilst raising funds for their charity partner Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice. On Saturday 11th September we competed in a Dragon Boat Race at Pugneys Country Park in Wakefield, racing against 15 other teams in three 250m races in dragon-decorated boats, cheered on by spectators!

Twelve E3R Warriors raced, this included Stephanie Plazzi as the drummer ensuring the paddlers kept their rhythm, which included; Andrew Pilling, James Soden, Andrew Joseph, Laura Rogers, Martin Spencer, Rodger Morley, Kingsley Walker, Jennie Butler, Dom Trowman and Nikki Outram. We smashed our sponsorship target of £1,000 and raised £1,162 for Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice.

Fundraising in 2020

2020 was a year like no other and charities really struggled to raise funds due to fundraising events being cancelled and charity shops being closed. So, when we heard that our charity partner was losing over £7,000 per day, there was no doubt that we had to help.

We are proud to have helped raise thousands of pounds for Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, by helping them deliver the ‘Jack Carroll and Friends’ charity evening series, which saw comedian Jack Carroll interviewing his comedian friends, including Jason Manford, David Walliams, Frankie Boyle and world champion boxer George Gloves.

Over seven weeks in May and June, thousands of viewers raised thousands of pounds through tickets sales to watch via live Zoom. We were able to support by offering resource and expertise to help deliver this online fundraiser, co-organising and supporting the Zoom event.

Christmas 2020 we once again made a donation to Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice instead of sending Christmas cards.

 

Fundraising in 2019

In March 2019 we attended their Audience with Paula Radcliffe and Steve Cram at the John Smith’s Stadium in Huddersfield to raise money. Both athletes shared their inspirational sporting stories and there was a Q&A from the audience with the evening being hosted by Yorkshire comedian Pete Emmett.

In June we sponsored a colour station at the charity’s amazing Colour Run at the Orchard FM Sports Park in Salendine Nook, Huddersfield. The run that is suitable for all ages and fitness levels, saw hundreds of people run, walk, dance or jog their way around the 3.5km course, whilst being showered in coloured paint powder.

Later that month E3R Warriors took on Total Warrior at Bramham Park, Leeds to raise money for the charity. The grueling course included 25 punishing obstacles including the Human BBQ, Cement Mixer, Death Valley and The Shocker to name a few and also includes 10 tons of ice and 100 tons of mud over 12k. This equaled one huge challenge for the 10 strong team with limited fitness levels and together raised over £500 for their efforts.

Children’s Heart Surgery Fund was E3R’s Charity Partner between 2017 – 2018 and we are proud to have raised over £5,500 in which supports children and adults born with congenital heart defects across Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire.
