Runners raise £18,700 for Home Instead Charities
As the only home care company to have our own national charity, we are always on the lookout for new fundraising opportunities.
Last weekend (Sunday 3rd April) a team of 19 runners from across our franchise network and National Office raised an amazing £18,700 for Home Instead Charities UK, taking part in the London Landmarks Half Marathon.
In raising such an impressive amount, they set a new record for the single biggest fundraising activity for our wonderful charity.
Executive Director of the charity, Penny Hamer was delighted with the result and said, “With the cost of living crisis and increasing fuel costs, the work we do to fund activities that get people out and about are more vital than ever.
“We are anticipating an increase in the number of grant requests we receive from grass roots organisations and local charities.
“The money raised from the half marathon will be used to award grants to fund activities that keep ageing adults happy, healthy and connected to their local communities with a particular focus on maintaining wellbeing and addressing loneliness and isolation.”
