Iron Mountain adopted Sense & Sense International as their Charity of the Year for 2011-12, and smashed their initial fundraising target of £100,000 by raising just over £129,000.
Thank you to all Iron Mountain employees for supporting the partnership and getting involved in so many events and activities - from running marathons, to trekking Kilimanjaro, skydiving to golf days and football tournaments!
"I would like to congratulate Iron Mountain on raising a fantastic £129,000 and thank all their employees for the enthusiasm and support they showed since the launch of our partnership.
"Raising this amount for Sense and Sense International in such unstable economic times is a huge achievement. It will have a real tangible impact on the lives of so many deafblind people we work with, so thank you for your tremendous support and congratulations again!"
Gill Morbey OBE, Chief Executive of Sense & Sense International, President of Deafblind International.

Iron Mountain BBQ day in London

We were also pleased to raise over £200.00 within just two hours of the afternoon, all thanks to the generosity of our staff."
