NOTTS-based interior fit-out company B&M Installations is undertaking a 24-hour non-stop table tennis marathon to raise money for local charity Maggie’s as part of its 24th anniversary celebrations.
The table tennis tournament will start at 8am on Friday 30 June and there will be non-stop play until 8am Saturday 1 July at the B&M offices, located in Pelham Road. With B&M staff, suppliers, friends and family taking it in turns to play, the event will raise money for Maggie’s – a Nottingham-based charity that provides support to cancer patients and their families.
As well as raising much needed funds for a worthwhile cause, the 24-hour tournament is in celebration of the company’s 24th year in business. Founded by managing director Graham Belfield in 1993 B&M specialises in office fit-outs and commercial refurbishment to businesses and the education services.
Graham said: “The event is a key landmark for us, celebrating nearly a quarter of a century in business. We therefore thought it would be fun to put our office table-tennis table to good use and hold a 24-hour tournament to mark each year in business.
“We would love for people to come down and support us and our fantastic chosen charity. We will be live streaming the entire event on Facebook and provide plenty of celebratory drinks, food and cake throughout the marathon. I think the early hours will be the toughest so any volunteers will be more than welcome!”
B&M Installations’ client services include project management, design and build, office interiors, office and commercial refurbishment, electrical and mechanical, flooring and decoration across the retail, educational and commercial sectors.
“The last 24 years have been very successful, with projects such as the refurbishment at intu Victoria Centre, Skegness Pier and the Energy Technology Building at the University of Nottingham.
“In 2016, we hit the million-pound order-book milestone which was a huge achievement for the business. Our success is largely down to forging great client connections such as our relationship with the University of Nottingham, with whom we have recently entered into our 15th year working with.”
