Nationwide fit out contractor 7formation is backing Northamptonshire Mind as its charity of year. And last weekend, (Saturday, July 9), members of the team, which has its base in Corby, took part in a 16.5 mile walk in aid the charity at the picturesque Rutland Water. The organiser and the company’s marketing manager Kitty Chan said: “We had a few bad knees and hips, but we completed it"
“It was a tough challenge for some for our chosen charity and I’d like to say a huge thankyou to everyone who supported, participated and donated!”
7formation chairman Steve Rowell said: “The team at 7formation looks forward to working closely with Northamptonshire Mind.
“If we can help in some way in raising awareness and improving the service, it will have been worthwhile. The charity walk kick-started our fundraising plan.”
Northamptonshire Mind fundraising and communications lead Nick Tite said: “What a truly amazing effort buy the team – the energy and commitment was inspiring!”
The charity’s chief executive officer Sarah Hillier said: “It was an absolute pleasure to attend speak to all those who took part in this event – they didn’t let aching bones nor the heat stop them!” The charity’s Just Giving page is open until Saturday, July 30 and can be found here (opens a new window)
