Hull staff raise £3,500 for the NSPCC
BHJ UK Food Ltd strives to provide market-leading services and solutions to the meat industry and always work to establish valuable partnerships which give back to the community. Therefore, they chose to adopt NSPCC as their charity for 2016.
In support of this, a team of employees, including General Manager, Jon Constable, and an employee from BHJ’s Head Office in Denmark, took on the challenging climb on 23 April to raise funds for the charity’s work with children and young people.
The team covered 24 miles and completed 5200ft of ascent within 12 hours, raising £3500 in the process.
Jon Constable, General Manager, BHJ UK Food Ltd said: “We are very proud to have raised £3,500 for the NSPCC. A massive thank you to all who kindly donated and offered such supportive messages. “To raise this money feels all the more special as 2016 marks NSPCC’s ChildLine’s 30th birthday year. We hope the money will go a long way in training volunteer counsellors at ChildLine so that the service can continue to help children and young people.”
Claire Reading, NSPCC Community Fundraiser Manager for Hull and East Yorkshire said: “The NSPCC value each and every one of its fundraisers and we are really proud of the team at BHJ Food for the amazing amount they have raised and for their amazing commitment to the work of the NSPCC and Childline.”

The NSPCC are looking for 30 local companies to support its ChildLine service in its 30th year. The £2,000 each company raises is enough to fund the recruitment and training of a new ChildLine counsellor and the first 100 calls they answer.
