Sintons supports Spinal Injuries Association with Gold Membership
Sintons has recently joined the Spinal Injuries Association as gold corporate member. The Spinal Injuries Association (SIA) is the leading national charity for spinal cord injured people.
Mark Quigley, Partner and spinal cord injury specialist, began raising funds for the SIA last year after he decided to participate in the SIA’s Peru trek challenge, fulfilling a lifetime wish to visit Machu Picchu.
After twelve months of fundraising activities, which included substantial quantities of homemade soup being sold to colleagues, Mark undertook his trek in April this year.
In total, Mark raised a spectacular 3,500 pounds for the Spinal Injuries Association and subsequently led Sintons to become a gold corporate member. Membership is not only awarded for corporate sponsorship, personal commitment is a crucial factor as well. Funds raised through the Corporate Partnership Programme provide crucial support for the SIA’s advice line, website and peer services.
Mark commented: “The SIA does sterling work on behalf of those with spinal cord injuries. Becoming a corporate member means we can actively support the SIA. My area of work demonstrates the importance of helping to raise funds for the SIA so they can support spinal cord injured people.”
Paul Smith, SIA CEO, “SIA is delighted to welcome Sintons as gold partners on the Corporate Partnership Programme and we look forward to exploring further joint working opportunities. We are also very grateful for the fantastic support from Mark Quigley raising a huge 3,500 pounds on his Peru Trek Challenge. The support we receive from both individuals and corporate companies is invaluable to delivering our vital services for the spinal cord injured community.
