Steel City Marketing’s Charity Zoom Workouts Raise Over £1000 for Local Charities
Steel City Marketing Steel City Marketing’s Charity Zoom Workouts Raise Over £1000 for Local Charities

Sheffield branded merchandise distributors Steel City  Marketing marked their 40th year in business via Zoom with a month of  fitness workouts. Every working morning of September, business people in  the UK were invited to join the team in a mini workout consisting of 40  seconds of 4 exercises. Steel City also invited wellbeing experts,  fitness gurus and business leaders to start their sessions off with a  motivational tip or message. The likes of James Wilson (The Sleep  Expert), Natasha Gilson (Miss Motivator) and Gary Butterfield (Everyday  Juice Ltd) all got involved and imparted their wisdom.

The  premise behind the challenge was to start the day off feeling both  physically and mentally energised and ready for the working day ahead.  Promotional prizes were dished out to those who took part and donated.  The three local charities the challenge was in aid of were: Cavendish  Cancer Care, The Children’s Hospital Charity and Weston Park Cancer  Charity.

“What started as a fun Joe Wicks style workout  to raise morale with other businesses, developed into a wonderful  community and became a morning ritual for myself and those involved! I  was blown away by the support we received, in particular from our  suppliers The Laltex Group and PF Concept who generously donated to the  three life changing charities we raised funds for. 

All  three charities have all been so inspiring and amazing to work with and  signature work out moves like the ‘Weston Park Wiggle’ have now become  legendary! We may even have to resurrect the #40x4challenge with a  one-off Christmas special!” says MD James Biggin.

Steel  City Marketing managed to exceed their target and raised £1,211.25 which  has been split between the three chosen charities.

“Thank  you so much to the team at Steel City Marketing for supporting us with  their #40X4CHALLENGE and raising over £1,000 split between our hospital,  Weston Park Cancer Charity and Cavendish Cancer Care! We are so  grateful for your support and loved getting involved with the  challenge.” comments Caitlin Hallat, Marketing and PR officer of The  Children’s Hospital Charity.

“At a time where our clients  need us now more than ever, it’s inspiring to see the team are  innovative in their way to support local charities. Fitness and mental  health has been on everyone’s agenda during lockdown and the  4x40challenge was a great way to set yourself up for the day, engage  with your team and support charities at the same time.” adds Corporate  Partnerships Officer of Cavendish Cancer Care, Kirsty White.

“The  40x40 challenge has been a great way to keep active during lockdown and  we’ve thoroughly enjoyed taking part. Our thanks in particular go to  the team at Steel City Marketing and to all those who have donated. It’s  thanks to the generosity of everyone involved that we can continue to  be there for patients and families facing cancer, together at every  step.” Charlotte Swinhoe, Weston Park Cancer Charity’s fundraiser.
