ERP Today and its partners have raised over £100,000 to support frontline NHS staff at this year’s Awards and Fundraising event, held at Ascot Racecourse on 23rd September. More than 1,000 ERP professionals and hundreds of NHS employees, joined by NHS leadership, descended on Ascot Racecourse for a day of awards, fun and fundraising.
In addition to raising money for the NHS, the event also recognised excellence across the ERP industry in eight award categories. Social Work England scooped the ‘Project of the Year’ accolade, Unit4 won ‘ERP Vendor of the Year’, Capgemini triumphed in the ‘Team of the Year’ award, and Yassy Shayesteh won ‘Young Professional of the Year’.

Paul Esherwood, editor at ERP Today, said: “It’s been a huge privilege to organise this event and we are immensely proud to have been able to support the NHS in this way. The ERP community stands as one with the NHS and we are very grateful for the support and commitment our sponsors and partners have shown. ERP Today has entered into a multi-year partnership with NHS Charities Together and we are already planning next year’s event which we hope will raise even more money to support the wellbeing of NHS staff.”
Ellie Orton, CEO at NHS Charities Together, addressed the attendees at the event, and said: “It’s been an incredible journey for NHS Charities Together over the past 18 months and we are delighted and incredibly thankful to have the ERP Today Awards and Fundraiser dedicated to supporting NHS staff, volunteers and patients. We are facing a long period of recovery as a nation and within the health service. Our own YouGov research shows that over 55 percent of staff have experienced a mental health toll from the pandemic, with many reporting depression, anxiety or even post-traumatic stress. We are incredibly grateful for the support of ERP Today and the ERP community and look forward to working with you all again next year.”
