MACMILLAN COFFEE MORNING
John Hogg supported Macmillan Cancer Support on Friday 27th September by joining in with the 'world’s biggest coffee morning ever'. Although not quite as energetic as our last endeavour, this gave staff (and their families!) an opportunity to put their baking skills to the test, which they did with great enthusiasm. The result was an impressive and delicious display of cakes and biscuits.
Many thanks to all who contributed.
3 PEAKS CHALLENGE
An intrepid team of 7 (4 walkers and 3 drivers) set out from our offices in Manchester on Friday 7th June with the aim of climbing [BEN NEVIS, SCARFELL PIKE AND SNOWDON], the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales in 24 hours.
After some gruelling fitness training and much planning, a fantastic team effort ensued and the team completed the challenge in great style, finishing in 2nd place out of 48 teams, with a time of 22 hours and 41 minutes.
A total of £2000 was raised for Action Medical Research.
Huge congratulations to all those that were involved.
Earlier in April, some of our staff endured a full working day round the office, wearing a set of “deelieboppers”, and as a consequence we raised £116 for the long established UK charity- COMIC RELIEF. Luckily we have no photographs of this event to share with you!

Some of our staff have definitely got a Spring in their step this month!
The newly formed "John Hogg Harriers" are taking part in a charity half marathon (13.1 miles) in Wilmslow near Manchester, to raise funds for The Christie, the world famous hospital specialising in Cancer treatment and research.
