Boulting give Steve Prescott Foundation charity boost


19th February

Boulting raised over £6,000 for the St Helens-based Steve Prescott Foundation in 2014.

The Steve Prescott Foundation was chosen through an annual employee suggestion scheme and companywide poll to select a new charity each year and over the past 12 months employees have successfully worked together to organise fundraising activities.

Boulting agreed to match up to £2,500 of donations, so following this year's contributions and efforts, with a sum of £3,551 raised, the donation reached an impressive grand total of £6,051.

The money was raised through events such as cake sales, dress down days, employee tuck shops, second hand book shops, quiz nights and staff partaking in local sporting events.

Steve Prescott, who sadly died in 2013, was a professional rugby league player for St Helens, Hull, Wakefield, Ireland and a GB Lions Tourist, and set up the Steve Prescott Foundation following diagnosis of Pseudomyxoma Peritonei, a rare form of cancer in the previous year.

The foundation support three charities close to him; The Christie Cancer Hospital in Manchester, Oxford Transplant Foundation and Try Assist, a benevolent fund to support rugby league players affected by serious injuries whilst playing.

The donations will be split between the three charities and will enable cancer sufferers to have specialist care and players to be supported in their time of need.
