Paymentshield are VSF – Very Special Folk!

Paymentshield's year of fundraising for VSF has come to an end, just look at the total amount of funds raised!

What an honour it has been to work together with all the fantastic people at Paymentshield during our year as their charity of choice 2017.  We really did build up a great friendship, one that will last beyond the fundraising.

When we were chosen, back in March 2017, the Charity Committee at Paymentshield were really hopeful they would achieve their target of £5000.  We are extremely delighted to announce that the grand total raised was in fact – £12,000!  What an absolutely outstanding achievement!

The committee team – Petronella, Sian, Andy, John, Danielle and Yvette – together with Rob the Chief Exec created an excellent fundraising model which engaged every staff member, ensuring that everyone who took part enjoyed themselves and had fun.  Just have a look at some of the ways they raised money:

  • Dress down days every month
  • Cake/Bake Sales
  • Raffles/Competitions/Auctions
  • Pub Quiz
  • 5-a-side football
  • 3 Peaks Challenge
  • Book sales
  • 24 hour go-kart challenge
  • Summer BBQ/Christmas Fair
  • Wardrobe Challenge
  • Race Night/Yoga Session
  • Car wash by the Executives

We have been invited to lots of their fundraisers and have witnessed for ourselves the great sense of teamwork that runs through Paymentshield.  We will miss seeing them all but have assured the committee team that we will come along and support the fundraising events they put on for their next lucky charity of the year.

The money they have raised has helped us to buy our own ECG machines and has also part-funded many FREE heart screenings for young people in Liverpool, Everton, Southport, Crosby, Chester and the Wirral.  They have directly contributed towards making a difference to several people’s lives.

We cannot thank you all enough!
