Athona fundrasing

We’re delighted to announce that, this financial year, Athona Recruitment will be fundraising for the humanitarian-aid, non-governmental organisation (NGO) Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) – also known as Doctors Without Borders.

MSF describes itself as “an international, independent, medical humanitarian organisation”. It exists to save lives by providing medical aid where it is needed most – in epidemics such as the Ebola outbreak, famines, armed conflicts and natural disasters.

Athona has a fantastic fundraising record, having raised over £11,000 for charity in each of the past two years. The sum has typically been split between two or more charities – but this year, we decided to make a big difference to one cause.

Three deserving causes were nominated by members of the team and every member of the Athona family was invited to vote on who should be our fundraising partner.

It’s no surprise that our team feels passionate about fundraising for MSF. We know that many of our medical candidates have volunteered for the cause in the past and recent news stories demonstrate that MSF’s work is more important – and more dangerous – than ever before.

Our first fundraising event will be a quiz night on Friday 20th November at Brentwood School sports centre, Brentwood, Essex. If you’re interested in attending, please email marketing@athona.com to find out more.
