Micro-P raises £25,934 for Naomi House Children’s Hospice

Micro-P has raised a whopping £25,934 for Naomi House Children’s Hospice after a 65 mile sponsored bike ride around the Isle-of-Wight.

10 directors successfully completed the cycle around the hilly terrain, despite up until a few weeks prior to the cycle ride, some of the directors didn’t even have a bike!

“It was a great effort and I want to thank all the directors for their commitment to this fundraising event,” says Micro-P MD, Gerry O’Keeffe.  “Of course we could not have raised this amount of money without the support and generosity of our key vendors, Acer, APC, Fujitsu, Lenovo, Plantronics, Samsung and Toshiba to name just a few and the staff at Micro-P who contributed a substantial amount of the total raised for this very worthwhile charity.”

Adds Tina Starbuck, corporate fundraiser of Naomi House: “We are delighted to receive such a fantastic amount of money just before Christmas, particularly as this is such a special time for the children and families who come and stay at the hospice. We’d like to say a huge thank you to Gerry and all the directors who took part in the challenge and to everyone at Micro-P for their continuing support.”

Micro-P has supported Naomi House since 2009 and to date they have raised in excess of £47,000. In addition to the cycle ride, Micro-P also sponsored this year’s ‘Naomi House Christmas bauble hunt’ for the second year running. Micro-P will continue to support the charity and the directors are already planning next year’s fundraising events, which is sure to be their biggest challenge yet!
