Spring/Summer Charity Events 2015

This weekend Pritam & Sasha from our Beckton office ran the London Marathon, achieving their targets and raising over £2000 combined for their charities - Richard House and Refuge.

Sasha's charity of choice, Richard House Children's Hospice in Beckton provides care and residential services to children and young adults, supporting their families through counselling, therapy and bereavement support. For more information about this great cause visit their website.

Pritam opted to raise money for Refuge, who are helping to fight domestic violence against women by providing support and services for those in need, and lobbying for policy changes. For more information about the important work this charity performs visit their website.

We're still looking for donations, so if you'd like to support these brilliant causes head to the following JustGiving pages:

Sasha's Richard House marathon run

Both managed to cross the finish line and complete the full 26 miles despite Sasha having an injury - a fantastic achievement for the pair. We're happy to support both of these fantastic charities and look forward to seeing more of our team take part in events in the future.

Alexandra, Bogdana, Laura, Karolina, Abiola, Sasha and Laura from Beckton will be taking part in the “pretty muddy” obstacle course on 27th June in Essex to raise money for cancer research. More information can be found on their JustGiving page, and it would be great to have some support on the day - financial and vocal!
