Autumn has begun, and we are delighted to reveal that we will be hosting an exciting trio of activities to raise awareness of the Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service.
For over 10 years we have had the privilege of supporting this inspiring charity, whose vital work provides specialist care and support for children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions, and their families.
Led by our MD and the proud Trustee of this charity, Fraser Silvey, our team have taken part in some fun and quirky activities over the years, from the Gung Ho 5k fun run, to a marathon, children’s activity days, gifted leadership and management training, and festive Christmas parties.
Now we are pleased to be both hosting and taking part in a trio of events that we hope will help to raise awareness of this incredible charity and donations towards making a real difference to those children who need it.
Fraser Silvey said,
“This is a charity very close to my heart and one that I am proud to have been a Trustee of for 5 years now. The work they do to enrich the lives of children and their families is truly humbling. Playing a small role in raising awareness means so much, just a small donation goes such a long way to supporting the fantastic facilities, hours of care and family support. We look forward to maintaining the fundraising momentum over the years to come.”
So what exciting activities are taking place?…
Henley half marathon
The first of our trio is a half marathon at Henley 10k! Our team recently completed the Thames Path Challenge’s unique a 10k loop around the Remenham countryside in order to raise money for this esteemed charity. It was a fantastic day for both our experienced runners and newbies, complete with a BBQ meal and glass of bubbly at the finish line.
