Each year we celebrate Wellbeing week with the aim to promote and improve employee wellbeing in a variety of ways. This year Wellbeing week ran from 6th to 10th September and focused on improved fitness, positive mental health, hydration and self-care. As part of the MONAGHAN MOVE IT CHALLENGE we hosted a Spinathon at Tyholland in memory of our beloved colleague Brian Grimley with proceeds going to Macmillian Cancer support.
The Wellbeing Week MONAGHAN MOVE IT CHALLENGE in aid of Macmillian Cancer Support took place on Wednesday 8th September in Tyholland. Five stationary bikes were cycled continuously from 10am to 4.20pm by 88 employees, clocking up a total of 770 km, this smashed our 2019’s record of 572km.
We are thrilled to announce the total figure raised by MONAGHAN in aid of MACMILLIAN CANCER SUPPORT is €12,280
CEO Paul Wilson encouraged cyclists on the day with a prize for the person who cycled the furthest in the allotted time. Fantastic effort was put in by all who participated and 4 of our fittest employees were rewarded with vouchers.
Many of our generous suppliers donated incredible prizes and vouchers to our employee raffle. We would like to extend a huge thank you to the many individuals and companies who supported this event.
Miles for Monaghan
Monaghan Mushrooms has made a €2,358 donation to the Irish Heart Foundation, a national charity fighting stroke and heart disease.
The money was raised at a recent “Miles for Monaghan” spinathon held at Monaghan Mushrooms HQ in Tyholland as part of Wellbeing Week. We had four stationary bikes cycled continuously between 10am and 3pm. 60 employees took part in the cycle clocking up 1,200 minutes of cycling.
