MJM Marine has made a record donation to PIPS Hope & Support, presenting them with a cheque for a staggering £30,302.
Employees from MJM Marine chose PIPS Hope & Support as their Charity of the Year 2018 and organised a number of events over the course of the year to raise money for the Suicide Prevention Charity. The company committed to match the funds raised at the end of the year.
Speaking at the Cheque Presentation, Seamus McCabe, CEO and Founder of PIPS Hope & Support thanked MJM Marine and it’s employees stating:
“I am absolutely blown away by what MJM Marine has given us. This is the single biggest donation that PIPS Hope & Support has ever received. I cannot begin to thank MJM Marine and their employees for their efforts and generosity in raising this phenomenal amount for us. This contribution will make such a difference to the services we offer in 2019.”
