Templand Group waxathon nearly doubles fundraising target for Bluebell Wood

13th December 2017

The grimaces were all in a good cause when directors from Chamber patron, The Templand Group (encompassing ITI Network Services and ITI Electrical Services) had their legs (and even one chest) waxed silkily smooth on the 8th of December.

-Team waxathon, Jason Denmark, Steve Clarke and Jack Malia wanted to raise £500 for Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice. What could be more fun than taking part in a leg wax the day after the Sheffield Business Awards? So far they've almost DOUBLED their £500 fundraising target with £923 committed from generous sponsors including some of their own team who preferred to pay sponsorship than endure a waxing! And Templand Group Chief Executive Jason Denmark upped the ante, having not just one, but both of his legs and his chest waxed too in order to raise extra donations on the day from the cheering crowd. Said Jason Denmark, "It costs Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice over £4m per year to support children and young adults with life-shortening and life-threatening conditions, and much of that comes from fundraising. A leg wax to support this great cause seemed like a great idea at the time; doing both legs and my chest helped raise even more sponsorship. It turned out to be one of the most painful things I've ever done but we all had a good time, and I'm really grateful to everyone who sponsored Team Waxathon in aid of Bluebell Wood. Plus a big thank you to Rebecca and her little elf-helper Sam for the waxing services. "If you want to help raise even more money for this great cause please directly to our fundraising page: https://www.justgiving.com/ITI-Services-1 - JustGiving sends your donation straight to Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice and automatically reclaims Gift Aid if you are a UK taxpayer, so your donation is worth even more. "Thank you for your support!
