Utopia staff raise money in honour of late company founder

Staff from Utopia’s Wolverhampton HQ have completed a fundraising walk which raised over £1,100 to be split between several charities.

The 10k walk is an annual event which is organised by assembly team supervisor, Matt Cox.

The total sum of funds raised are due to be split between the Make a Wish Foundation, and the Liz Green Fund, which was set up to benefit Cancer Research UK and Macmillan Cancer Support.

Cox commented: “As well as raising valuable funds for charity, our walk is a great way for colleagues to spend some time together out of the work environment. We had a lot of fun and there weren’t too many blisters at the end so well done to everyone who took part. We’ve already set the date for next year’s walk when we hope even more people will take part.”

Utopia has a close history with the Liz Green Fund, as it was established following the passing of the bathroom company’s founding director, Liz Green, after her death in September 2022.

Ian Hall, joint-MD – and also Liz’s brother – said: “We will never forget Liz, either personally or professionally. Liz made such a tremendous impact on the Utopia business we see this as a positive way for us to honour her memory and help those charities dear to her.”

Utopia also recently reported that it has completed the final phase of a £500,000 investment in new machinery that will provide increased capacity at its Wolverhampton factory.
