E.ON colleagues work in harmony to help organise fundraising concert for Alzheimer’s Society

A group of colleagues based at E.ON’s Nuthall office are using their enthusiasm for singing and their commitment to supporting a good cause to help put on a fundraising concert next month to benefit the company’s charity partner, Alzheimer’s Society.

Led by Chris Coats, who has been a member of the Carlton Male Voice Choir for nearly 30 years and also works as a Customer Service Advisor for E.ON, the colleagues have been helping to spread the word about the concert and boost ticket sales.

Around 60 members of the Carlton Male Voice Choir, including Chris, will be joined by local organist Michael Anthony to perform at the charity concert with proceeds being donated to Alzheimer’s Society.

Chris said: “The Carlton Male Voice Choir has a proud fundraising tradition, and having already raised thousands of pounds for other charities, and as a member of the choir and an E.ON employee, I was keen to direct some of our efforts towards fundraising on behalf of Alzheimer’s Society.

“And while my team at E.ON didn’t feel that singing was their greatest strength, they were really keen to help make this concert a success in other ways, including helping to sell tickets to family and friends. The amount of money we raise is directly impacted by the number of people we get along on the night, so please come along and join us.”

Pippa Foster, Alzheimer’s Society Operations Manager for Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, said: “Chris and his colleagues are really great examples of the different ways people can get involved with fundraising, whether it’s showcasing a particular talent, or helping out in a more supporting role. We’re grateful for all of the energy that E.ON employees put into raising money for Alzheimer’s Society.”

 

Alzheimer’s Society was chosen as E.ON’s official charity partner by colleague vote, and all of the money raised and donated by the company and its employees is used to fund community based Dementia Support Workers, including in the East Midlands. The two-year relationship began in the summer of 2016 with the aim of donating £200,000 by mid-2018.
