etpm launches biggest charity campaign to date

with No Comments

Marine and subsea recruitment firm etpm is kicking off the New Year with the launch of its most

ambitious charity fundraiser to date. The Super Saturday campaign revolves around the RBS Six

Nations Rugby Tournament and encourages a bit of healthy competition amongst colleagues and

friends whilst raising funds for a number of good causes. Last year etpm raised more than £4000 for

Aberdeen’s Roxburghe House from this campaign alone and it aims to smash that total for this year’s

chosen charities, The Wooden Spoon and Bill McLaren Foundation.

etpm’s Super Saturday campaign kicks off each January with a Six Nations online sweepstake and

whilst this is ongoing, the team is in the background getting ready for the big Super Saturday event

which takes on March 19 – the last day of the tournament. The online sweepstake competition has

seen an overwhelming increase in support since its launch in 2013 and with more than 150 entrants

last year, etpm has created and launched a dedicated Super Saturday website for 2016.

Andrew Mitchell, etpm Business Development Manager, said: “The sweepstake originally started out

as a bit of fun between colleagues in the office. It attracted the interest of those outside of the

organisation and before we knew it, we had over 150 online entries and raised £2000 within two

weeks of the competition going live and double that by the end of the tournament. This year we

would like to raise more than £5000 from the sweepstake and Super Saturday event combined.”

Participants get points for successfully predicting the winners of each match in the tournament; in

the event of a tie, the winner of the sweepstake will be the person who most closely predicts the

number of tries scored during the tournament. The winner of the sweepstake is announced on Super

Saturday during the annual event which usually consists of beer, rugby and auctioning prizes

generously donated by local partners.

“We’re extremely proud to announce that The Wooden Spoon and The Bill McLaren Foundation are

our confirmed charity partners for the 2016 event,” said Andrew. “Both charities are dedicated to

helping disabled, disadvantaged children and young people though rugby and both are fantastic

partners for our Super Saturday competition.”

etpm holds a number of fundraising events every year. One of the main beneficiaries in 2015 was

Roxburghe House which received £10,000 – nearly half of which came from Super Saturday
