We are celebrating 20 years with 20 fundraising pledges

To mark 20 years since Paydata became incorporated, we are taking on the ambitious task of fundraising for Unique by completing 20 different charity challenges. These will be done on both a team and an individual level over 2018.

Paydata's charity of the year

We selected Unique as our ‘Charity of the Year’ following the vital support that it has provided to our colleague, Helen Lallyette and her family. Unique supports children born with rare chromosome disorders. These disorders are so rare and specific that limited information is available for families.

Helen says, “Unique provided our family with vital support following my son’s diagnosis. They provided us with local contacts to build a support network of people affected by similar experiences; provided my eldest son who was four at the time with a comic book to help him understand what was happening; and advised our paediatrician as there is such little information out there about what the condition means for every family. I’m delighted we’re supporting Unique in our 20th anniversary year and look forward to getting involved in the fundraising activities over the year.”

Fundraising began over Christmas and we have already raised £1,240 in total. This money has been raised from previous fundraising events, cost savings from the Christmas card budget which was replaced by sending a Christmas email to clients and partners, a Christmas jumper day and donations from the Directors’ Christmas present fund. For every customer that completed our annual customer satisfaction survey, Paydata also donated £5.

Paydata 25km charity walk

On Saturday the 16th June the Paydata team embarked on a treacherous 25km walk from the village Hope, up to Win Hill in the Peak District, all to raise money and awareness for our charity of the year Unique. Overall it took 8 hours of steep hills and rocky ground, but we powered through to reach the top. We raised over £2000 in the process.

We would like to thank everyone that donated, and a big well done to the Paydata team for raising so much money and for taking part.

Paydata charity quiz night

Our battle of the business’s quiz night on the 16th November was a great success! We raised over £450, all in aid of our charity of the year Unique.

We would like to thank all the companies that took part, including The Institute of Clerks of Works, Bauer, Henderson Brown and the winners First Actuarial.

We would also like to thanks the companies that donated the amazing prizes for the raffle:

  • Experience days, The Cuckoo (Vintage Inns), Lunch Wrapped Up, Escape Rooms Peterborough, And So Beautiful  and Fryz Fish and Chips

We hope to exceed our initial target of £5,000 and we are asking sponsors, clients and supporters to back the important work that Unique does worldwide.

Fiona Hornsby, Managing Director, noted that “The planned charity challenges to mark our 20 years in business unites us behind a fantastic cause that we have selected together as a team.”
