R. Benson is proud to launch a new fundraising programme to support staff in raising money for our three chosen charities for 2019. We have set an ambitious target of raising and donating £20,000 to good causes this year and getting fitter and healthier in the process!
Our team have chosen some tough challenges to test their endurance levels, check out our Instagram feed (@rbensons) to see all our latest training pictures and videos! R. Benson have committed to paying entrance costs for each event and sponsoring each person £50 to kick start their fundraising.
Events our colleagues have already signed up to include:
- 11 colleagues will face an epic battle against the mud and gruelling obstacles at the Tough Mudder Classic event in May
- 5 walkers will ramble 50km across the beautiful, but very hilly, Chilterns in July
- 1 brave soul is running his first marathon in September at Richmond Runfest
- A team of 4 are already training hard for the Royal Parks Half Marathon in October
To find out more about the events, the teams and how to sponsor them visit our company JustGiving page.
We’ll be hosting further events throughout the year to support these charities including our popular annual golf day in July!
