ACEDA employees run 50 miles in July to raise money for Teesside Hospice
Five of our employees, Chris Ralston, Steve Morley, Emma McNeice, Liam Klement and Amanda Mistry took on the challenge of running 50 miles throughout the month of July to raise much needed funds for Teesside Hospice. We are delighted to announce that the team raised just over £950 with gift aid which will go a long way to supporting those in the care of Teesside Hospice.
Each member of the team dedicated some of their time on evenings, weekends and early mornings to complete the challenge. Towards the end of the month, legs were aching and fatigue was setting in, but they kept going to complete the 50 miles.
Teesside Hospice, who are our chosen corporate charity of the year, provide various services to anyone affected by a terminal illness who lives in the Teesside area. They include, Inpatient Care, A Wellbeing Centre, Outreach Services and Bereavement Support. They provide care to both patients and their families from the moment of diagnosis right through to end of life support. More information can be found on their website – www.teessidehospice.org. The work they do is incredibly important and it has been a privilege to help support them.
Corporate social responsibility is one of our key business initiatives and we strive to help local charities and members of the local community in any way we can.
