John Padbury, General Manager with Metalogic Bear’d all last Friday at the company’s Christmas Town Hall meeting.
This wasn’t a long-held desire by John to get in touch with his bear side but all part of a fundraising effort for the Pituitary Foundation.
Metalogic are part of a number of companies owned by Jonas Software who’s chosen charity this year is the Pituitary Foundation and as combined group businesses have raised an amazing £20,000! This is great news for this relatively small charity aimed at improving the lives of those affected by disorders of the pituitary gland which although rare (around 70,000 patients in the UK) misdiagnoses are a common problem and some reports suggest that many more people could have an un-diagnosed pituitary issue.
John got more than he bear-gained for when he challenged his team to come up with fundraising ideas and the more money raised the more ‘challenging’ the outfit was to be! Narrowly missing out on the Pikachu outfit John did take his fundraising seriously when nominated to ‘wear the Bear’ and was tasked to spend the day in it, from the moment he left the house to his arrival at the Hyatt Regency on Broad Street, Birmingham and throughout the day as he delivered and chaired the meeting! There were some interesting encounters along the way as the pictures show.
John would like to say Many Thanks to all those who donated, it really was much appreciated. If you feel so inspired that you would like to add to John’s fundraising efforts for this extremely worthwhile cause then please do visit his Just Giving page.
The Metalogic team also supported Christmas Jumper Day at the same meeting raising money for Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day with the winning ‘Reinbeer’ jumper being sported by Neil Webb, Customer Support Team Leader.

Two significant implementations in the aluminium sector have been Kent based Dore Metals and LA Metals in the West Midlands. Both companies have experienced growth in the sector and with it the need to implement a system that would allow them to continue to expand and improve productivity.
