The inaugural M2 Mulvey Cup Day was hailed as a great success by the many friends and colleagues of Steve Mulvey whose memory was honoured by this event.
“Steve Mulvey worked at M2 for over ten years and was a popular colleague so when he passed away earlier this year following a brief fight with cancer his many friends in the business wanted to do something to remember him, celebrate his life and raise money for Cancer Research” explained David Knowles – Northern Regional Sales Director.
“We devised the M2 Mulvey Cup Golf and BBQ Charity Event because Steve himself would have enjoyed it, and we held it in one of his favourite haunts – The Mere Golf and Country Club – but we also had a serious intention, to raise funds for Cancer Research. Many of his colleagues at M2 wanted to participate and they marked the day with fundraisers including cake sales back at the M2 office along with a Raffle and a Silent Auction.
“The M2 Board were the main event sponsors and we were pleased that our business partners Ricoh, Canon, Nuance and HP, along with our parent company SCC all supported our fundraising drive. They, and some of our key customers donated prizes for the Raffle and the Auction – the auction alone raised over £3,000 and helped massively towards our target of £10,000 which we were delighted to reach.
“Congratulations go to Alex Gill of M2, the winner of the Mulvey Cup for 2016. Paul Ralphs, whose daughter Katrina helped organise the event, and his team won the team competition.”
John Taylor, CEO at M2 said:
“Raising £10,000 for Cancer Research is a great achievement and I, along with the Board, congratulate David and the organising committee on this successful event. We intend to make this an annual event so that our colleagues, our customers and our partners can join together to remember Steve, celebrate his life and continue to contribute to this worthy cause.
“M2 has a great tradition in actively supporting causes close to our hearts and, in addition to Cancer Research, we’ve also recently raised money for and donated to our other chosen charities Macmillan Cancer support and the Teenage Cancer Trust.”
