Samaritans' Brew Monday 2023 (Blue Monday)

We are glad to have partaken in the Samaritans Brew Monday on the 16th of January 2023. One of our Directors, Richard Cook, volunteers at the Solihull Samaritans branch, and the money raised went directly to the Solihull branch. The day was filled with activities to do for TMS and the other businesses around the Business Innovation Centre (BIC). We had a bake sale provided by the team at TMS and their families, as well as a quiz pack that donators could take home to do, with prizes for the top result!

A cabinet with various cakes, biscuits & TMS branding placed on top of it.

After our lovely Office Manager, Jan, tallied up the results for the quiz. We had a number of prizes to give out to individuals from TMS team and the other BIC businesses.

Three men stood in an office with two of them holding a prize they won from a quiz.


From TMS, we had our auditors Richard Marriott and Darren Newbold achieving the top points and they earned themselves beverages ready for the weekend!

TMS and the other businesses around the Business Innovation Centre, managed to raise over £150 for the Samaritans charity! This donation was then matched by TMS and a total of £290 was raised for the charity. We would like to thank those who participated to help such an important cause. Until next year!

Richard offered these words about the fundraiser, “We have a great team of people here at TMS and in the Business Innovation Centre who always pitch in and help when we run a fundraiser. Volunteering at Samaritans is something which I am very passionate about, I know that the money raised will go to making sure the Solihull branch can be there for people who need a listening ear day or night.”
