Pertemps donation gives boost to The Giles’ Trust
The Giles’ Trust is the brain tumour fund at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital which raises money to support the world-leading brain tumour research that takes place in Birmingham. Employees of recruitment firm Pertemps have recently donated an incredible £11,239 to The Giles’ Trust.
This generous donation has come from a range of fundraising initiatives and the generosity and hard work of the firm’s employees. Events such as the Pertemps Masquerade Ball and the give as you earn scheme, where Pertemps employees dress down every Friday, have helped to raise awareness and funds for The Giles’ Trust.
Over the past year, the Pertemps employees have undertaken a new approach to fundraising, putting on their first masquerade ball which saw guests enjoy a three-course meal and an evening of entertainment. There were a variety of amazing prizes on offer, including a once-in-a-lifetime mini-break experience to the 2020 Rudolfina Ball in Vienna.
The Giles’ Trust was set up by England cricketer Ashley Giles and his wife Stine to raise money to fund vital research into brain tumours at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham. Cathryn Worth, Fundraising Manager at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham Charity, said: “The team from Pertemps have been absolutely amazing over the past year. Their donations will help The Giles’ Trust to fund vital research into brain tumours at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.”
Recently, The Giles’ Trust was able to fund a new brain tumour research nurse who is now working at the hospital to help recruit patients to brain tumour trials. Find out more about The Giles’ Trust here.
