Our partnership with PMC Paul Mason Consulting, PMC is the market leading provider of IT services to the retail sector and has supported Adoption UK since 2008. During this time and thanks to the sheer dedication of its founder, Paul Mason and his staff they have raised an amazing £30,000. Adoption UK is the charity of choice for PMC in the UK. PMC chose Adoption UK as they wanted to work with a national charity with local impact that they could support not only in terms of fundraising but also by helping to raise the charity’s profile. PMC and Adoption UK have developed a mutually beneficial partnership and are able to raise awareness of adoption and fundraise for us through a variety of events and challenges. In 2012 PMC pledged to raise £10,000 for Adoption UK and this was achieved through the commitment of Paul and his team. Included in the events of 2012 was the ‘Grand raffle’ which saw some great prizes up for grabs and raised income of more than £6,000 for the charity! Following on from this, in 2013 PMC again set the target of fundraising £10,000 for us and continuing their support. Seven staff members were part of the Adoption UK Oxford Half Marathon team during this year and raised more than £3,000 in the process. We are thrilled to have the support of PMC. The types of fundraising activities have varied over the years and one of the most exciting challenge events took place in September 2014. A team of 13 colleagues (11 cyclists and 2 support members) set off on a Coast to Coast cycle challenge and completed a 151 mile bike ride from Whitehaven to Tynemouth, raising £3,700 for us. The idea to take on this challenge was initiated by an employee and then driven by the team to train and raise funds. This was an amazing personal achievement for all involved as well as outstanding fundraising for the charity and we are very grateful to the PMC team in completing this ride in aid of Adoption UK. There are other ways that PMC have helped us over the years. As a company with a highly skilled workforce specialising in IT, PMC have also generously given helpful advice and guidance to us, helping to improve our IT functions and operations. Adoption UK has proudly recognised the support of PMC through some of our publications including the Annual Review and bi-monthly e-newsletters and members magazine, Adoption Today. Activity on social media has also been of benefit to both partners, raising the profile of the business and the charity.
