Matthew's fundraiser for NHS Charities Together
Fundraising for NHS Charities Together
The company I work for, Acumentice, has as its charity partner, NHS Charities Together.
NHS Charities Together is the national independent charity caring for the NHS and is there for everyone who loves the NHS. Together with a network of over 230 NHS charities across the UK, we provide the extra support needed to care for NHS staff, patients and communities.
Donations to NHS Charities Together help take pressure off an overstretched NHS, helping the NHS go further for everyone. It supports incredible NHS staff and emergency volunteers so that they can continue with their vital life-saving work. It also funds projects that prevent ill health and improve services for patients. Its national reach through a network of NHS charities covering the UK means that it can ensure funds go quickly where they are needed most.
I will be running the Hackney half marathon alongside three of my colleagues to raise money for this great cause. From a more personal perspective, I will also be running for my nan, who has had various health issues in recent years and has received exceptional care from the NHS.
