Dorset manufacturing company raises £15,000 for Julia’s House in 2018

Superior, a leading manufacturer of o-rings and seals, has supported Julia’s House throughout the year, with a range of fundraising activities.

  • 3-day Trek through the Alps – 12-15 July
  • Tough Mudder – Saturday August 18
  • Dorset Plane Pull – Monday August 27
  • Rotary Dorset Bike Ride – Sunday September 9

The company has raised £15,000 through fundraising activities this year, including a donation from Managing Director, Tim Brown. In addition, Superior has recently been presented with a trophy from the Julia’s House fundraising team to acknowledge reaching the £100,000 fundraising milestone over the past five years.

Superior employees from all departments and sites took part in this year’s fundraising activities, including several apprentices from the Academy. All activities are to raise funds for Julia’s House, the Dorset and Wiltshire children’s hospice charity which supports life-limited children and their families.

Tim Brown, Managing Director at Superior, commented: “We’re delighted to have raised this money for Julia’s House and help fund breaks for families facing tough challenges every single day. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Superior for getting involved in the fundraising activities this year and to everyone outside the company that has sponsored and supported us.”

In addition to the company-wide fundraising activities, the Head of Superior’s Apprenticeship Academy, Katie Bodman, completed a 3-day Trek through the Alps from Thursday July 12 to Sunday July 15 for Julia’s House.

Katie commented: “The trek saw a group of 28 keen fundraisers ascend over 2,500m across three countries. It was a gruelling but unforgettable experience, with an amazing group of people.”

Sue Byrne, Quality Systems Manager at Superior and organiser of the Plane Pull team, commented: “This was a very tough challenge, which saw our team of 20 pull a massive 35,000kg Boeing 737 for a distance of 50 meters at Bournemouth Airport.”
