Local businessman helps Mercia’s 30 Days of Giving campaign reach £30k

After a hugely successful 30 Days of Giving Campaign, raising money for 30 Charities during the 30 Days of June (inspired by Mercia Image Print’s 30th birthday), the campaign was just £1800 short of a magical £30,000 campaign total.

That was until local businessman, Pete Ellse from Cosy Direct, stepped in with a final donation to send the total past £30,000. “In a city teeming with business philanthropy Amanda’s 30 day campaign is the ‘stand out’ inspiration of 2019 and I was delighted to help and drive the figure past such an impressive milestone,” said Pete. “Amanda Strong, from Mercia Image Print, has arranged some expert training from a collaboration of local coaches, so my staff will certainly benefit from our support.”

Cosy Direct and Neish Consultancy, were two of lots of companies who had given their support to the campaign. “It’s amazing,” said Amanda. “The support from the Derby business community has been awesome and for Pete to step in is fabulous.”

Consultants from across Derbyshire, including Jackie Moody-McNamara, Andrew Deighton, Ursula Cameron, James Powys and Fiona Porter have donated their training skills and time to the campaign.

With the support from local businesses and charities, 30 Days of Giving gave everyone an incentive to help 30 worthwhile causes.

Commenting on the fundraising Amanda said: “I am thrilled that we have raised so much money for such amazing charities.  The support that my fellow businesses have shown to this initiative has been fantastic!  Derby really does have an incredibly supportive business community and I am so proud that Mercia Image Print has been part of this for 30 years.”

Claire Twells, from Smith Partnership who organised the Grand Finale added: “It was a busy few months, culminating in a very busy June, but when you see the result of the 30 Days of Giving Campaign everyone can be immensely proud of all their effort and hard work.”

The 30 Days of Giving Campaign was the initiative of Amanda Strong of Mercia Image Print.
