Designated Charity of the Year: Maggie’s Centre, Nottingham
Simon Nicholas Associates, construction recruitment specialists of Nottingham, chose Maggie’s Centre in Nottingham as their designated Charity for 2015.
We were delighted to present a cheque for £1,400 to Jennifer Hillary, Fundraising Organiser of Maggie’s Centre Nottingham.
“It has been a pleasure raising money for such a worthwhile charity and has been wonderful to see the centre and meet the staff and volunteers” said Simon who challenged his fear of heights and took part in a Sky dive to raise funds.
Watch Simon in action on his sky dive:
Maggie’s Nottingham provides free practical, emotional and social support for people with cancer and their families and friends. Built in the grounds of the City Hospital the Centre is a warm and welcoming place with professional staff on hand to offer the support people need to find their way through cancer.
The Nottingham Centre opened in November 2011 and currently welcomes around 50 people a day into the Centre offering support to people with cancer, their friends and families.
Maggie’s Nottingham is funded by donations from businesses, groups and individuals and do not receive statutory funding.

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who contributed to raising money and for your generous donations.

National Autistic Society
Arran approached us as he was raising money for the National Autistic Society.
He was also attempting to break the “Guinness World record attempt” for the most brands advertised on a single sportswear item.
As you can see from the picture, his attempt was succeeded.
Chuffed to bits as he also beat Chris Boardman with a top 6% time of 3h 54m!
In addition to sponsorship, we have now donated and have received a replica shirt…….if any of you keen cyclists wish to borrow, give us a shout!
Tough Mudder – Help for the Heros
When Claire Watt said she was thinking of competing in Tough Mudder, Simon Nicholas Associates was more than happy to sponsor her!
Huge congratulations and respect to her on completing the gruelling 12 mile armed forces army assault course in Wales. She endured the mud and all 18 obstacles, including swimming through ice, electric wires, hauling herself over 12ft walls and jumping from 15ft planks into icy water! Now that takes balls!
