WE DID IT! We completed our final charity challenge 'Around the World in 80 Days! Following in the footsteps of the famous Phileas Fogg, we too coved a staggering 24,901 miles over 80 days. Not only that, we smashed it by going an extra 770.33 miles over target! (that's more than the distance between Land’s End and John O’Groats as the crow fly’s). We walked, cycled, ran, rowed, and windsurfed. We conquered come rain or shine. We've very proud of our workforce and we really are thankful for any support in donations you can share, to help us reach our full target.
Over the last two years, our amazing team of staff has been fundraising over the last year with various events including Fantasy Football Leagues, Football Tournaments, Bake Sales, Rowing challenges, Marathons as well as clocking up the miles by walking, swimming and the odd round of golf.
We are proud to have focused on fundraising for various charities over the years. Each year, a new charity is suggested and voted for by our brilliant staff across the UK and Europe and, for 2022/2023, we have chosen to support The Unbeatable Eva Foundation which was recommended by a colleague with a close connection to the charity’s founders.
The Unbeatable Eva Foundation was set up by Paul Slapa and Carran Williams who lost their nine-year-old daughter to an incurable childhood brain cancer called DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma).
The pair tried to raise funds to get treatment in the US and even appeared on Children in Need. Following Eva’s passing in 2021, they have continued this amazing Foundation to help other families who receive this diagnosis.
Each year, around 30 to 40 children in the UK are diagnosed with DIPG and, as of today, there are no medical options other than standard radiotherapy – the same treatment that was offered to children 60+ years ago. The Unbeatable Eva Foundation helps support families with a child diagnosed with DIPG by supporting medical research and sending gift boxes, so the children have fun memories.
As a smaller charity, each penny raised can really make a difference, so we are very grateful for every donation received.
