Eddisons team in 5,000-mile challenge to raise £5,000 for Brain Tumour Charity

Eddisons team in 5,000-mile challenge to raise £5,000 for Brain Tumour Charity

Eddisons’ building and project consultancy team embark on a 30-mile cycle ride as part of their 5,000-mile challenge

EDDISON'S ' 30-strong building and project consultancy team are taking part in an ambitious physical challenge to raise £5,000 for the Brain Tumour Charity by the end of July.

The colleagues, who are based across the firm’s Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle, Cambridge and Peterborough offices, are attempting to cover a total distance of 5,000 miles in one month by running, walking, swimming and cycling, to support a colleague who has been affected by the condition. Their aim is to raise £1 in sponsorship for each mile completed.

Eddisons director Joseph Fitzsimmons has been clocking up at least 20 miles a day by taking early morning walks as well cycling to work at Eddisons’ Leeds head office from his home in Bingley. He said: “As a team we are really pulling together to try and reach our 5,000-mile goal, spurred on by the knowledge that the money we raise will help improve treatment and prospects for people affected by brain tumours.

“The Brain Tumour Charity is very close to all our hearts and it is also the world’s leading brain tumour charity and the largest dedicated funder of research into the condition.

“Although not all of us are sporty, everyone is contributing what they can. We’re really determined to push ourselves to reach our goal by the end of this month and have already reached round about the 3,000-mile mark.”

In September last year the firm’s building and project consultancy team raised over £5,000 in sponsorship for the mental health charity Mind by completing a challenge to cover 2,000 miles.
