Distributor of technology products Exertis has raised over £12,000 for a variety of local charities through events organised by members of the Exertis UPGRADE trainee management programme.
The programme is an 18-month internal trainee initiative linked to a Level 3 apprenticeship in leadership and management. The fundraising events were held by teams in Basingstoke, Harlow, Burnley and Elland.
The following donations have been made:
Basingstoke: £2,487.30 for Naomi House & Jacksplace
Burnley: £1,320 for Derian House Children’s Hospice and £1,700 for the Meningitis Research Foundation (MRF)
Elland: £3,477.76 for Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice

The total money raised for Naomi House & Jacksplace has reached £141,587.22 since Exertis started to support the charity in 2010.
“This is a fantastic achievement by our employees who have organised events in their own time with local charities of their choice,” said Exertis UK & I managing director Paul Bryan.
“From family fun days and casino nights to cake sales, raffles and auctions, I am immensely proud of our employees for their efforts for such worthy causes. As a business, we place great importance in giving back to the communities, promoting the culture that we want at Exertis with a genuine desire to make a difference.”
