Mojo

Our Social and Fundraising Team.  With 11 members from across the business, Mojo meet monthly with the aim of arranging fun events whilst raising money for local charities chosen by the Frontline people each year.  Always on the lookout for great fundraising ideas, Mojo have organised events such as Bake Sales, Pancake Day,  National Cream Team day, British Pie Day! Raffles,  Easter Chocolate Tombola, themed lunches and events including Wii-mbledon and the Grand National Sweep Stake.  They also do an amazing job organising our Summer BBQ and Christmas Party.

The Frontline chosen charity for 2017 is Parkinson’s UK

      Parkinsons Logo    One person in every 500 has Parkinson’s – that’s about 127,000 people in the UK. Parkinson’s is a progressive neurological condition, symptoms, and how quickly they progress, are different for everyone.  There is currently no cure, but drugs and treatments are available to manage many of the symptoms

On 1st April ten Frontliners took part in the 5K  Inflatable Obstacle course. They were greeted by 10 HUGE obstacles to tackle as well as a 5K run.  They all successfully completed the challenge and raised the handsome sum of £1,132.70 for our chosen charity Parkinson’s UK.

Other good causes

In addition to the great work we do for Frontline charities, other causes close to our hearts are also supported and some involve tough challenges. Here’s just a taste of what Frontline people get up to in the name of a good cause:

On Sunday 2nd April Martin Hoskins jumped out of a plane from 15,000ft to raise money for Alex’s Wish, in aid of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.  Although petrified at the thought of jumping out of the sky, Martin said it gave him an incredible adrenaline rush  and real sense of achievement.   With the generous support of Frontline staff, he raised an incredible £2,497.50, for this worthy cause.

In 2014,  Cheryl Cox volunterred to help plant the poppies at the London Tower to commemorate Remembrance Day .  She said “I felt that the poppy installation at the Tower was an inspired idea and such an appropriate, fitting tribute to the remembrance of those that fell during the World Wars. Planting the poppies really did feel like being part of something special, with the added bonus of knowing funds were being raised for the six service charities”

In September 2012, Janine Walsham embarked on the adventure of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, and, together with an ex-Frontliner raised over £1,640 for Anna’s Hope. Although she didn’t quite make it to the top, she was extremely proud of her achievement. Speaking about why she had chosen Anna’s Hope she said “the charity supports children and young people suffering from brain tumours, and I lost my dear mum to this awful disease so I really wanted to do something in her honour.”

In his first ever race of this kind, Jon Freeman ran from Europe to Asia in the Istanbul 15K to raise money for Papworth Hospital where his father recently received stellar treatment whilst having a pacemaker and defibrillator fitted.

Martin Hoskins rode 170 miles from Morecambe Bay to Bridlington in 2 days in aid of Alex’s Wish – Fighting Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

Tiffany Gwinnett took on the Caledonian Challenge which she completed in less than 22 ½ hours, and thanks to friends, family and colleagues, raised over £2500 split between the Caledonian challenge charity, riding for the disabled and spinal injuries.

Richard Warr completed the Shine night walking marathon in aid of cancer research.

Picking the dodgy date of Friday, 13th September didn’t stop a group of friends raising just over £12k.   Frontline’s own Phil Melling joined 16 others who cycled from Marble arch to Arc de Triomphe in under 24hours raising money for MS. The group included Duncan Shearer and Dave Clarke from Seymour. They chose MS as Dave’s sister has the condition. Phil said ‘it rained for all bar 2 hours and was a whopping 10c when we arrived in France at 4am so we didn’t get much chance to see the French countryside. Despite all of that we are already talking about our next challenge’.
