Prestige Telecom Group supports Shine in weight loss challenge

18th March 2021


About the company and the challenge

Prestige Telecom Group are a leading independent provider of all thing's telecoms, from business mobiles to VoIP and hosted telephony. It is our mission to make businesses in the UK more connected with the advances in the communications sector.

Our Weight Loss Challenge was to embrace the saying 'New Year, New Us'. We went about this challenge by teaming up with a local personal trainer and Shine. For every 1lbs we lost we would donate £5 to Shine. We had weekly weigh ins every Monday and tracked our progress and journey.

We lost a huge amount of pounds of weight and raised a lot of pounds for Shine totally £585!

Why did you choose Shine?

We are teaming up with Shine, an amazing charity that does so much for so many, but also holds a personal and special place close to our Sales Director Andrew. Andrew's son was born with spina bifida in December 2018. Jude has spent a lot of time in Southampton General Hospital and has undergone surgeries MRI's and countless appointments. Dr Mundil and their team have been fantastic, and the aftercare has been outstanding. Shine is entirely funded by the generosity of the public, and we would like do our bit to support this amazing cause. 

How has Shine helped you?

Shine gave us so much support during our challenge with regular updates, help on social media and amazing fundraising kits to keep us going. We all had Shine t-shirts, running vests and cycling jerseys which not only gave us some motivation when we needed it, but it was great awareness when we are our on our 1 exercise a day.


Thank you to Prestige Telecom Group, and all those involved in raising vital funds for Shine and awareness of spina bifida and hydrocephalus.
