As part of its 150th anniversary celebrations, Baxi has already beaten its £150,000 fundraising target for its national charity partner Marie Curie.

With the company not yet at the end of its year-long fundraising stint, staff have already sprinted, baked, gamed and climbed their way to hitting their goal for the charity, which will help to fund 7,500 hours of care and guidance for those living with terminal illnesses and their families.

Marie Curie has been Baxi’s charity partner for the past three years, and fundraising events have included a sponsored walk across Hadrian’s Wall, a night time cycle ride around London, a Mud Run, a 75-mile cycle ride around the Lake District, a 24-hour gaming session, a Baxi version of Great British Bake Off, and a Diwali Indian food sale.

David Pinder, chief executive of Baxi Heating, said: “We can’t think of a better way of celebrating our 150th anniversary than by giving a gift of £150,000 to such a deserving cause. We may have reached the target we set out to achieve, but our efforts don’t stop here – there are plenty more fun activities planned for the remainder of the year to support Marie Curie and help them to continue with their incredible work.”
