ISS Movember fundraiser raises over £40,000

ISS has raised over £40,000 for the charity Movember, which seeks to tear down the social taboos of prostate cancer, testicular cancer and male suicide.

To help raise awareness, ISS UK & Ireland’s Gender Balance ERG hosted a join event with the HRTea Rooms (discussing all things hormone related). The company’s Charity Partner Macmillan presented on the topic of Prostate cancer, while John Allen and Sam Watson from the UK&I ERG brought the topic forward via a brilliant awareness webinar.

Bid Manager Amy Dolan and Key Account Director Nerina Craciun hosted a podcast for the ISS TV page, candidly discussing testicular cancer and male mental health.

Penny Fulker, Head of Workplace Experience and Cristine Jacobs, Curation Experience Manager, met up with managers and placemakers as part of their Livv workplace curations. Encouraging people to get involved, have fun and join in the ISS colourful Movember photoshoot, the team’s photos adorned the workplace walls and its social media campaign ensuring a huge fundraising success and plenty of follower donations.

Rounding off a successful month, the Livv team provided a final victory lap via smoothie bike. Encouraging everyone to take part, burn off some energy and create some fresh fruit smoothies in the process, it was a reminder of how exercise and healthy eating can benefit everyone.

Globally, 14 ISS teams including NZ, AU, US, UK, DK, IE, FR, APAC, and Group HQ raised a staggering £20,449.00 in the space of a single month to support and fund men’s health projects globally.

Bryan Goold, ISS’ Movember individual, raised a whooping £2,171.63!

A combined 2437 km were covered via sponsored walks – that’s the equivalent of walking from Copenhagen to London and back again!

The UK was the top Movember Team, raising a fantastic £5098.00

EGM sponsors matched the total of funds raised. As such, ISS donated a total of over £40,000.
