MJM Marine £30k donation to PIPS charity

January 14, 2019

Employees from MJM Marine chose PIPS Hope & Support as their Charity of the Year for 2018 and organised a number of events over the course of the year to raise money for the suicide prevention charity. In addition, the company generously committed to match the funds raised at the end of the year.

Last week the Newry-based marine refurbishment and fit-out company presented a cheque for £30, 302 to Seamus McCabe, Chief Executive and Founder of PIPS Hope & Support.

Overwhelmed by the donation, Seamus thanked MJM Marine and its employees, saying: “I am 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.”

The money was raised by MJM Marine employees who ran a number of fund-raising events over the course of the year, including a Spinathon in the Buttercrane Shopping Centre and a Save or Shave Challenge which saw one employee lose his hair and another lose his beard!

Mr Gary Annett, CEO MJM Marine added: “We are delighted to present PIPS Hope & Support with £30,302, the credit for which must go to our employees who made a tremendous effort over the year to raise over £15,000 which the company matched. Our Charity of the Year plays a key role in our CSR activities. We are committed to supporting our local community but through our Social Charter Committee, we use our fund-raising initiatives to encourage employee engagement, motivation and teamwork which MJM Marine is very proud of. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our employees for their efforts is raising such a tremendous amount of money and wish PIPS Hope & Support every success in their future fund-raising activities.”
