Metricell’s charity fundraiser event for June was a spin-off of Family Fortunes that we called… Department Fortunes!
The Sales and Marketing Team beat the Web Ops Team in the initial face off and made it through to the fast money round where they scored over 100 points and won £1,000 for their chosen charity: Samaritans.

This month’s charity fundraiser saw our Lead Product Designer take on the banker in an online game of Deal or No Deal!
The game was nerve-wracking, but with the support of all the Metricell team, our contestant made it all the way to the end of the game without giving in to the bankers offers. He stuck with box number 23 that he originally chose at the beginning of the game and won £900 for his chosen charity: Mind!
Mind is a mental health charity in England and Wales. Click here to see the amazing work Mind do to make sure no one has to face a mental health problem alone.
Metricell recently held an online fundraiser with the theme of ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire?’
Our Operations Director earnt a space in the hot seat where he used all his lifelines and answered all questions correctly to win £1,000 for his chosen charity: Springboard!
The money will go towards providing sessions for children and young people with disabilities in West Sussex.

A team of Metricell volunteers recently completed a 5K Tough Mudder course in support of Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance. The course, based at nearby Holmbush Farm, included a range of obstacles and tons upon tons of wet mud to battle through! Team work was crucial as the 20 person delegation conquered cargo net pyramids, slippery ramps and freezing water for a commemorative T shirt, a complimentary beer and the satisfaction of overcoming the course together.
Part of a range of charity initiatives supported by the software company throughout the year, the KSSAA provides an essential medical service to sick and injured people in hard-to-reach places. Last year alone, they were called out to help over 2,000 people in life-threatening conditions. Thanks to friends, family and supporters, Metricell were able to beat their £1000 fund raising goal with a final total of £1181!
This month, we have been continuing our charity fundraising for the British Heart Foundation by holding a Halloween raffle and party!

We had a fantastic selection of raffle prizes, which were kindly donated by Metricell and local businesses. We would like to say congratulations to the winners and a big thank you to everyone for all your support!
