We are proud of the charity work that we have done collectively
as a business over the past couple of years. But this year we want to help in whatever way we can and also shout out the individual efforts of our brilliant staff. Keep checking this page to see what we have been up to.
Our Operations Manager Pete's partner Rhi was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer in September 2020. Since then she has had two operations and has had to have chemotherapy. Pete is looking to gather support for a Real Wrap raffle being held on March 31st, to raise money for his chosen charity ‘Target Ovarian Cancer’. Both Pete and Rhi’s worlds were thrown upside down but Target Ovarian Cancer has been an important source of information and support. They really do some wonderful work in raising awareness and campaigning for vital testing and treatments. Please get involved and donate generously. Pete and Rhi are planning to keep fundraising so be sure to keep up to date and help out in whatever way you can.
Cancer has hit my family and friends hard over the years and It has decided to test us again in the form of incurable cancer that my father in law is currently living with. The next 12 months will be the most challenging of times and his positivity, stoicism and humour has humbled me and sparked a desire within me to push myself through those coming months.
I intend to run 1200k from 1st December 2020 - 1st December 2021, which is the equivalent of 2.5 marathons a month! I am aiming to raise £1200 for Cancer Research knowing that this research is the only way to one day make the incurable curable.
The only “scary” bit for me will be whether I have the fitness and perseverance to achieve this, but I know that my determination to show support and solidarity to those I love will push me through.
I am ready for all weathers and hope to find some interesting and beautiful terrain including the streets of Bristol along the way as I run through the seasons. I will be entering races, travelling to coastal or woodland areas to attempt various distance challenges. Any running challenges really, that help towards the main target, including at least one marathon! Route suggestions are welcome!
My daughter Scarlett became seriously ill with pneumonia back in 2016 when she was only 4 years old. She was treated by the remarkable team at Noah’s Ark and is now a strong, healthy 9-year-old. I will forever be grateful for all they did for Scarlett and just wanted to give something back as recognition for our appreciation and their amazing work. I will be running the Newport Marathon in October this year to raise money for Noah's Ark Charity, Please contribute whatever you can for this fantastic cause.
