PMC is proud to actively work with and support local charities through its offices in the UK and India. In the UK, PMC is a proud sponsor of Adoption UK. Adoption UK is a national charity run by and for adopters, providing self-help information, advice, support and training on all aspects of adoption and adoptive parenting.
This year, Adoption UK are celebrating their 50th year. For 50 years, Adoption UK have supported, advocated, championed and been there for adoptive families around the UK. To celebrate this fantastic achievement, Adoption UK hosted their 50:50:50 challenge, with a team of 80 people walking 50km in the hope of raising £50,000.
On the 25th and 26th September 2021, PMC joined the walkers and fundraisers for two days walking amidst the beautiful scenery of the Thames footpath. Day one started at Weybridge Sailing Club and ended in Richmond, with day two starting from Richmond, continuing along the bank of the Thames, finishing in Central London. As at September 2021, the funds raised total an amazing £21,765.
Since 2008, PMC has supported Adoption UK, not only in terms of fundraising but also by helping to raise the charity’s profile. PMC and Adoption UK have developed a mutually beneficial partnership and we are proud to have raised over £30,000 for Adoption UK to date. This has included a number of events and challenges including raffles, a half marathon and a coast-to-coast cycle challenge covering 150 miles. Through company donations and the fund-raising efforts of our team, we have enabled Adoption UK to launch its website and community forum.
This year, as part of the 50:50:50 challenge, as well as supporting Adoption UK with event costs, finisher t-shirts and medals, we also have a team of PMC walkers taking part in the event. We hope to help Adoption UK reach their target of raising £50,000.
