Here at Blenheims we like to do something to support a good cause and every year we choose a charity that the business is going to support through various fundraising activities. We put the question to our staff and they have chosen Shelter – the homeless charity that helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through advice, support and legal services.
As a business working in the property sector, this seems like an extremely apt charity to choose – too many people are faced with homelessness in the UK and we believe that a roof over your head is the least that people should expect from our society.
Our staff will be taking part in many and varied sponsored events throughout the year both in teams and individually – from Half Marathons to Bake-Offs, we will all be doing our bit to support this cause. Our Just Giving page shows what we are up to and allows you to donate to help us reach our target of £2,500.
One of our first team events will be the Torbay Half Marathon (http://www.torbayhalfmarathon.co.uk/) and the following staff have already signed up: Sharon Kenward, Sally Robinson, Helen McGaw and Lee Sylvester. This awesome quartet are already busy training for the 24th June and would welcome as many supporters to cheer them on their way on the day – you will recognise them as they will be wearing the official Shelter UK t-shirts!
