Columbus Christmas ball raises £17,032 for charity

Columbus Global - an international consultancy firm - raised a grand total of £17,032 at their Christmas charity ball this weekend. Proceeds from the evening will support Maggie’s Centres, Little Miracles and the Rainbow Trust.

Participating in a charity auction where big prizes were up for bidding - such as the latest iPhone X, a boxing glove signed by Anthony Joshua, and VIP tickets to Henley Royal Regatta - was just one of the many ways guests of the event could offer their support to the chosen charities.

Mary Hunter, Managing Director of Columbus Global said: "Each cause that we have chosen to raise money for this year will touch so many of our lives. Therefore, it is an honour that we can make a difference by supporting the amazing work that these 3 charities continue to do, both for those sick and for the families who are in need of support too!

I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported our charity ball including our fantastic sponsors, and the Columbus employees, the amount raised will make big impact to all three charities.

At Columbus, we are extremely passionate about showing corporate social responsibility and our involvement in charity and giving back to the community is just one of the areas where we offer our help. Recently we donated 11 laptops to Holy Cross School Hucknall, to support the teaching of technology for the next generation.

We are looking forward to our next opportunity to make a difference and to support those who need it the most."
