At Trustmarque we celebrate working together, winning together, and having fun together. We are also passionate about fundraising activities to support the chosen charities that our employees care about, raising money for good causes in the process.
This year we look forward to the fundraising prowess of an individual employee, our Commercial Director Ben Cranham, as he trains in preparation for the CRN Fight Night 2015. The charity event, organised by CRN (the top technology news source for IT and solution providers) will take place on the 21st May at The Brewery in London. Now in its eighth year, the event has come to be known as the biggest annual sporting event in the IT channel.
“Raising over £180,000 since the first fight in 2008, we are thrilled to be raising money once again for a host of charities, chosen by our courageous fighters,” says CRN.
12 weeks of intensive training for participating fighters will culminate in the white collar Fight Night, which includes a 3-course black tie dinner and auction for guests as well as professionally-refereed action in the ring. Over 500 industry professionals will gather to watch a total of nine fights and cheer their heroes on to win.
“CRN Fight Night has gone from strength to strength over the years, and that is thanks to the support of our readers. The event is hugely popular in the channel calendar, and not only gives our boxers a chance to learn a new skill from the professionals and to represent their company, but also to raise thousands of pounds for great causes,” CRN emphasise.
“It’s a great opportunity to do something different and to get into the ring for a good cause. It’s been a big goal to train for and I can count on support from my colleagues for the big night,” says Ben.
