Thank you to everyone who helped us to mark our first birthday in business with a fundraising event, MacCelebration!
Attended by 60 guests, we’re delighted to announce that collectively we raised £350 for charity at the event which was held at PPG Canalside on Wednesday 20 April.
Founder of MacComms, Ellie MacDonald, is a Trustee of the Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust and so she decided to combine the event with a fundraiser for the charity. The event saw business leaders network and enjoy an evening with entertainment, food, drink a balloon pop raffle and a moving video to showcase the charity which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.
The event was supported by a number of local businesses including Huddersfield Town who donated two directors box tickets to watch the match in style, Oliver James Sugarcraft who created a MacComms branded cake and cupcakes to raffle off; and entertainment was provided by Huddersfield University student band Quattro Saxophone Quartet and hypnotist and mind reader, Will James.
“I am very proud of how far MacComms has come in just one year.
“With a number of frightening statistics that more than half of all start-ups fail within their first few years, I wanted to make a mark to prove that with hard work and determination, this doesn’t have to be the case. And, with the support from the local business community the event was a great success for both MacComms and the Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust.”
MacComms continues to grow and with the successful appointment of a number of new client wins, is recruiting for additional members to join the team.
