FCS staff raise over £3,600 for Manchester fundraiser

Written by Ellie

Staff at Fuel Card Services took part in an indoor cycle ride and has so far raised over £3,600 for the families affected by the Manchester terrorist attack, 120% of their fundraising target.

The team rode the equivalent of the distance from Dublin – home of our parent company DCC’s head office – to the Manchester Arena, the site of the bombing that claimed the lives of 22 people, many of them children.

Fuel Card Services’ Burnley and Leeds offices rode the 638 km round trip once each, and our smaller offices in Oxford, Kent and Motherwell joined forces to cycle the same distance between them.

As well as getting on our bikes, staff also took part in other fundraising activities, such as dress down days.

We have set up a text number for anyone who wants to make a donation. To do so, send MCRF75 followed by the pound symbol and amount to 70070. Alternatively you can visit our JustGiving page here.

All money raised will go towards wider fundraising efforts to help the families of the victims of the attack on May 22nd, when an attacker detonated an explosive device at one of the arena’s exits after a concert by pop singer Ariana Grande. It was the deadliest terrorist attack in the UK since the 2005 London bombings.

Ariana Grande returned to the city last weekend to headline a fundraising concert at Manchester’s Old Trafford Cricket Ground. She was joined by some of the biggest names in pop – including Take That and Justin Bieber – and attendees of the May 22nd concert were promised free tickets.
