Congratulations to Matt Harrison (pictured front) and fellow team member, Stewart Pert (2nd from right), for completing the Maggie Harrison 220-mile, 2-day memorial cycle ride from Sunderland to Brereton.
Thanks to generous donations, Matt smashed his £2000 target and raised a whopping £6,117.92! All funds go to Macmillan Cancer Support in honour of Matt’s mother’s passing 20 years ago. Matt organised the ride to raise money for Macmillan to give something back to those who selflessly helped his mother, and his family through some extremely tough years.
On completing the 2 day ride Matt said: “A belated update to let everyone know that we did it! We made it across the finish line around 6pm Sunday 1st October and were welcomed by several of my old school mates and mom’s old neighbours who’d laid on a bit of a welcome committee and food and drinks…a very welcome sight for us after 220-odd miles!
Thank you to everyone, of you that donated, large or small, your hard earned money to support this little ride for such a worthwhile cause. Your support throughout really made the difference and kept us all going over the weekend!”

At Flomatik we’re committed to the ‘Life Cycle Perspective’ of the materials we use and the impact our waste has on the environment.
So our Birmingham office were delighted to be able to upcycle our waste and support a local Lichfield charity. The Saxon Hill Craft Barn is a resource and recycling centre, providing work based learning opportunities for young people and adults with physical and learning difficulties. Maria Pallett, Store Manager, commented this week: “I would like to say thank you for the three pallets of cable reels, they were very well received and consequently we had a lucrative weekend at the Craft Barn.”
We’re aiming to become a regular supplier of items such as foam, plastic tubing and wire cables for future upcycling fundraising projects at the Barn while lowering our carbon footprint.

Well done to the 8 people from the GIS team who represented Flomatik at the Jobsite 5-a-side tournament at Fratton Park in Portsmouth last week. It was our first time at this annual charity event, supporting the neonatal charity, Ickle Pickles.
Despite the grey and showery weather, it was a very competitive day, with excellent football skills on show from the 16 teams taking part. Having never played together, Flomatik’s credit-worthy ambassadors displayed a genuine team spirit, encouraging and supporting each other and having lots of fun along the way. Great to see, and no doubt we’ll be back next year to have another go!
