Throughout the years Pete Marquis Contractors have supported many local charities including St Catherine’s Hospice, Trinity Hospice and Brian House, Blackpool.
Indeed, we are proud to state that close to £250,000 has been raised through various events organised by Pete himself for these most valuable and worthwhile causes.
This year’s beneficiary is the Katy Holmes Trust.
Katy died in 2011 from an inoperable brain tumour and since this time her parents, Paula and David, have tirelessly raised money to support research into the causes and remedies to this disease.
For 2014/15, Pete is the Chief Patron of the Katy Holmes Trust and he is to sponsor the Pride of the North West Awards in March 2015.
More recently, The Pete Marquis Contractors Christmas Ball was held at Ribby Hall, Wrea Green. The auction that included a vast range of items raised in excess of £20,000. All of the money raised is used to support the research and, even better news is the fact that for every £1 raised, £2.28 (through Charitable Funding) is actually donated to the actual charity itself.
