The ONE Group is dedicated to supporting both local and national charities by hosting several fundraising activities with both our staff and network.
Official MAGPAS charity partner
MAGPAS Air Ambulance, or the Mid Anglian General Practitioners Service to give the organisation its full title, was founded in 1971 by Dr Neville Silverston MBE. MAGPAS became a registered charity a year later. MAGPAS Air Ambulance brings crucial lifesaving care by land and air to patients in life-threatening emergencies in the East of England and beyond however MAGPAS relies on donations for financial support.
MAGPAS Air Ambulance has attended more than 60,000 patients since it was founded and its helicopter and medical service costs in excess of £2 million per year.
With more than 50 medical professionals from NHS funded doctors, medical volunteers and military professionals, the service provides more than £3.5 million of front-line emergency cover to the East of England.
Our MAGPAS Fundraising
To date, The ONE Group has raised over £80,000 from various fundraising events we hold with our clients, such as our headline event, The Annual Lifesavers Golf Day, which is in its tenth year.
The ONE Group covers the entire cost of the day and donates all the proceeds to the charity. This event would not be possible without the generous support of our hole sponsors, donors and the admirable efforts of our consultants and support staff who work tirelessly throughout the year to ensure the golf day is a success.
We also had a MAGPAS Support Day, where some of our recruitment team got hands-on volunteering at the MAGPAS Air Ambulance shop move day, you can check out the photos here: http://bit.ly/2nz9VOm
Most recently, we organised a Three Peak Challenge which helped raise £1,001.14 for MAGPAS, the TOG team gave it an amazing effort managing to finish in 23 hours and 53 minutes.
