PHMG raises more than £34,000 for charity


Employees at Manchester-based PHMG have raised more than £34,000 for charity since the start of 2019.

The audio branding specialist set staff an end-of-year target of £58,000 as part of its PHMG Foundation initiative – a company-wide programme launched in 2013 that supports charities around the world.

Recent events have included an 84-mile trek of Hadrian’s Wall, volunteering at the Greater Manchester Marathon and tackling an inflatable obstacle course.

“Over the last few years, we’ve aimed to make charity a core part of our employees’ lives,”

said Chris Berisford, Finance Director at PHMG and PHMG Foundation Trustee.

“The lengths that they go to to hit their fundraising goal is just incredible. For example, we’ve got a 24-hour disco coming up, as well as The Drop – an event where employees will be blindfolded, dropped off at a location and told to make their way back to a chosen point without any money.

“They really embrace the initiative – even if it means stepping outside of their comfort zones.”

In just six years, PHMG has raised more than half a million pounds for more than 70 employee-chosen charities.

In 2019, PHMG’s chosen charities are Mind, Cancer Research UK, The National Alliance on Mental Illness, SOS Children’s Villages Illinois and the Red Cross. As with previous years, the company will once again donate £50,000 if staff hit their target.
