Following its most recent Annual Awards night and with great elation, Sirius Buying Group presents its remaining donation from the night of £5,500 to worthy foundation, Crohns & Colitis UK.
Personally elected by Brian Woods of Chard Domestic appliances, this charitable contribution was presented by Gordon Jones, Chairman of Sirius Buying Group at the co-branded Sirius Hoover AGM last Thursday, 26th October 2017.
Gordon Jones, Chairman of Sirius Buying Group comments on the recent donation to the Crohns & Colitis UK: “We have an amazing network of Sirius Members and Approved Suppliers and I am always astounded by how deep their pockets are when it comes to supporting worthy causes such as these. With the help of everyone in attendance, our most recent Gala Dinner saw an incredible £11,000 raised from all of the donations received for the charity auction.”
“Helping us to preserve humanity in business, this impressive £11K has been equally shared between Crohns & Colitis UK and The Cystic Fibrosis Trust” says Gordon.
Brian Woods of Chard Domestic Appliances had this to say “For us to be able to give back at a time when so few are not is truly remarkable: especially when the cause is so close to our hearts. We are thrilled to be presented with this charitable contribution and hope it can be used to great effect at Crohns & Colitis UK – thank you Sirius.”
