Driver Hire Gatwick’s Annual Fundraiser!
04 February 2015
The 29th of August will see Driver Hire Gatwick take on the monumental task of walking for 24 hours!!
There is a method behind our madness... the walk will be our annual fundraising event; this is an event we look forward to planning and executing each year and always try to beat the previous year’s efforts. We will again be raising money for Save the Children which is a fantastic cause and one that is close to our hearts. Please follow the link to their website to see the life changing work they do.
Last year some of you may be aware we took part in the local East Grinstead Triathlon and managed to raise over £1200!! This year however we thought we would raise the stakes and have planned a 24 hour walkathon. The route will see us start from our new office in Manor Royal to Central London and back again! Along the way we will be taking in the sights of Wimbledon, The Royal Albert Hall, Kensington Palace, The London Eye, The Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. This challenge is going to be physically as well as mentally challenging! It is a completely different prospect to anything we have done before but we are all more than up for the challenge!
With an extra team member now in the office we are confident of raising even more money than last year and have set ourselves the target of £2000! We are extremely motivated to reach our goal and raise as much money for Save the Children as possible. Last year we were staggered by the generosity of our drivers, clients and family and friends in how much they donated. On behalf of us and all those children would be extremely grateful for any donation you are able to make as any amount will make a difference! We will be posting regular updates on how our preparation is going before the big day so watch this space.
For the money we raise we have a shopping list in mind:
1. Winter Clothes for a Child - £10 x20 = £200
2. Mosquito Nets (Pack of 5) - £21 x10 = £210
3. Healthcare for a child for the year - £31 x5 = £155
4. Health Workers First Aid Kit - £47 x5 = £235
5. Bicycle for a Health Worker - £80 x3 = £240
6. Water Pump - £320 x3 = £960
Total = £2000
