After the success of last year’s FSD Family Fun Day, we decided to do it all again this year! Once again, the main objective was to raise funds for the Royal Marsden Cancer charity, in support of Ellie-Mae Billings, the daughter of director Nigel Billings, who is continuing her treatment for leukaemia.
FSD staff and their families, together with representatives of our supply chain companies, enjoyed a beautifully warm and sunny afternoon, with a BBQ, drinks, and some very entertaining games for all.
On the day we raised £1,800; this was raised through contributions for food and drink, a well-supported raffle and other cash donations. The company have decided to match the sum donated.
FSD Managing Director, Phil Haines, very selflessly nominated himself to do the Ice Bucket Challenge, pledges for which have exceeded £1,400. The largest donation received was from the FSD Engineering Department, giving them the privilege of administering the very large bucket of ice!
