Stratford business raises over £2,100 for children's charity

A CHILDREN’S charity can continue to support disabled kids thanks to the energetic efforts of staff at a Stratford business.

Staff from NFU Mutual’s HR team have raised over £2,100 for Caudwell Children by running, walking, cycling or swimming 1,083 miles – the distance between Land’s End and John O’Groats.

The funds will help the charity to continue offering practical and emotional support to help disabled children and their families to have choice, opportunity, dignity and understanding.

The fundraising total included a £500 donation from NFU Mutual’s Community Champions Scheme.

Trudi Beswick, CEO at Caudwell Children, said: “NFU Mutual have a real understanding and desire to help remove the barriers disabled children and young people face to leading fulfilled, happy and comfortable lives.

“The team at NFU Mutual are directly helping to realise our vision of creating a world where disabled children have the choice, opportunity, dignity and understanding they deserve. “We commend the heroic efforts of the HR team and thank them for their continued support.”

Andy Leek, senior business partner at NFU Mutual said: “We are incredibly proud to have come together to raise money for such a worthwhile cause. Caudwell Children provide a valuable service to disabled children and their families and we’re pleased to support the amazing work they do in communities across the UK.

“It was great to have so many members of NFU Mutual’s HR team keen to support the fundraising.

“Special thanks to Ila Pearson at NFU Mutual who has been instrumental in setting up the event, as well as Steffi Brown at Caudwell Children who supplied t-shirts and fundraising packs for the teams.”
