Leading UK planning and design consultants Pegasus Group – which has an office in Leeds – celebrated its 15th anniversary by raising £15,000 for the Alzheimer’s Society.
Pegasus Group has marked its landmark 15 year anniversary by raising more than £15,000 for the Alzheimer’s Society.
Formed in 2003, the company now boasts more than 280 skilled and experienced staff operating from 12 offices across 11 UK locations and is regarded as one of the UK’s leading development consultancies specialising in planning, design, environment, economics and heritage.
Tony Bateman, Pegasus Group Managing Director, said: “To mark our anniversary, we thought it fitting to raise money for a chosen charity and a vote across the business saw the Alzheimer’s Society selected.
“Our success is grounded in our determination not to stand still but to continue to grow and invest in a strong workforce and we are proud to mark our 15th anniversary.
“Pegasus Group’s objectives remain the same as when the company was founded – that we deliver a first-class service for our clients whilst providing optimal results.”
An anniversary ball was held on Saturday night to celebrate the milestone, where the £15,000 target smashed. Helen Foster, Director of Operations from the Alzheimer’s Society, attended the event on Saturday night.
Helen said: “We are extremely grateful that Pegasus Group staff have chosen to mark the company’s 15th anniversary by uniting with Alzheimer’s Society against dementia.
“Dementia is the UK’s biggest killer – someone develops dementia every three minutes with a million people set to develop the condition by 2021.
“Sadly, too many are facing dementia alone without adequate support. But every pound raised by Pegasus Group colleagues will help us find a cure, improve care and offer help and understanding to people affected by dementia.”
Other fundraisers by Pegasus staff throughout the year have included taking part in the 2018 Yorkshire Pedalthon, Leeds 10k, Warwickshire Triathlon, the Three Peaks Challenge, as well as office cycle challenges and office led baking competitions.
Over the past 15 years, Pegasus Group has been involved in a number of high profile projects which have included Gloucester Services, Plasdwr Garden City in Cardiff, Ebbsfleet Garden City Scheme, a Regional Distribution Centre for Asda, Binfield Learning Village, New Moncao in Birmingham, the Panoramic 34 Restaurant in Liverpool, and the Jaguar Land Rover redevelopment at Gaydon.
