From walking miles and miles and miles through the peak district, baking hundreds of cakes and taking part in a heartwarming local supermarket store collection, this year has seen the eager members of the ClientsFirst team all rally together for one common goal: to raise £5,000. It was a tall order, especially in time for our team challenges, a 10,000ft skydive and a gruelling 8 peak trek in the Lakes.
These challenges are now less than one week away and we’d like to say a huge thank you to each and every single one of you who have been so generous with your donations. They have not only helped us achieve our ambitious goal of £5,000, but to massively surpass it! This brings the current total to a whopping £6,526.53.
This money is all for our charity partner, The British Heart Foundation which, as some of our team members saw for themselves, will go directly towards innovative solutions to ‘keep hearts beating and blood flowing’.
If you’ve followed our journey from the beginning then it is likely that you’re aware of the reasons why we chose The British Heart Foundation. Heart failure, circulatory diseases and other related conditions, such as vascular dementia, have affected or continue to affect a number of us directly. Your combined £6,526.53 is a real motivator for us ahead of our challenges this Friday and Saturday - trust us, we need all of the support to conquer the impending planes and mountains that lie ahead!
