As part of our 40th Anniversary celebrations many Harvey Group Employees took part in a 100k in 30 Days Challenge. In aid of The Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice, the 100k (each) had to be completed by Running, Walking, Swimming and/or Cycling.
During the 30 days employees went the distance to complete the challenge, come rain, hail or snow (it is Northern Ireland after all) and fundraise for a great cause.
Overall, we have raised a fantastic £2445.40 for the NI Children’s Hospice.
The total distances for each are set out below;
Running – 987.4km
Walking – 2134.62 km
Swimming – 3.9km
Cycling – 1194.4km
That’s 3 times around Ireland!
Ryan McLernon Director of Operations for NI and GB said ‘This has been a great team event which has ultimately raised a lot of money for our chosen charity. NICH provide a truly wonderful service for children who need specialist respite, symptom management and end of life palliative care. We are proud to raise this money to help them do so.Well done to all involved.’
Jonathan Lamberton, Corporate Engagement Executive at Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice said “At NI Children’s Hospice we rely heavily on receiving donations from companies. I was absolutely delighted to welcome the Harvey Group to Ni Children’s Hospice and to receive this incredibly generous gift of over £2,400. This donation will help us provide 70 hours of specialist nursing care to the 300 children with life limiting conditions that are in our care.”
