Sponsorship & Charity Work
At Casey, both the company and the staff are involved in raising money for, and donating to, charities and causes that are close to our hearts. Here are some of our favourites.
This year, Casey have chosen to support the Rochdale Children's Moorland Home. Staff have carried out various fundraising activities for this local charity, but the most successful so far was the Tough Mudder event entered by Managing Director, Chris Casey along with John Walmsley, Anthony McCormick and Andy McCann who raised.

Prostate cancer is an illness people are generally reluctant to talk about, with symptoms that men would rather not get checked out. It is a cancer that can grow very slowly or very quickly and sometimes has no symptoms at all.
It is something that has touched us here at Casey. In 2009, one of our employees, Dave Lett, died of prostate cancer that had spread. In memory of him, we formed a team for Movember Uk in 2011. This is a charity that raises money and, importantly, awareness of men's cancers. Teams consist of Mo Bros (and supportive Mo Sistas) who grow moustaches throughout the month of November.
In 2011, our team Mo-People Mo-Progress Mo-Environment raised over £1000.
Suubi means HOPE in Ugandan.
The Suubi charity is an orphanage near Entebbe in Uganda and was started by Hermann and Helen Jungmayr who are based in Rochdale. The company, and staff, are regular contributors to this charity.

In April 2012, Peter and Pat Casey visited Suubi to see the good work being done for themselves. Read more to see the gallery of photographs from their visit.
Casey held several fund raising events to raise money for the New Start Appeal. The charity's goal was to raise £1million to purchase a Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Scanner. This equipment, now at Wythenshawe Hospital, is the only one of its kind in the north west.
