SCRUM ON IN FOR CHARITY: Andrew Mitchell

Aberdeen-based marine and subsea recruitment firm etpm is kicking off the New Year with the launch of its most ambitious charity fundraiser to date.

Its Super Saturday campaign revolves around the Royal Bank of Scotland Six Nations Rugby Tournament and encourages a bit of healthy competition amongst colleagues and friends whilst raising funds for a number of good causes.

Last year etpm raised more than £4,000 for Aberdeen’s Roxburghe House and it aims to smash that total for this year’s chosen charities – the Wooden Spoon and Bill McLaren Foundation.

Andrew Mitchell, etpm Business Development Manager, said: “The sweepstake originally started out as a bit of fun between colleagues in the office. It attracted the interest of those outside of the organisation and before we knew it, we had over 150 online entries and raised £2,000 within two weeks of the competition going live and double that by the end of the tournament.

“This year we would like to raise more than £5,000 from the sweepstake and Super Saturday event combined.”
