The staff at Connex Education have admitted to not being very sporty but they were not going to let this stop them from raising money for a good cause so, on Friday 21st March, instead of running marathons or swimming laps, the Connex team, suited up in funny sporty costumes, went on a one-day fundraising fast in support of Sport Relief.
Giving up food for a day turned out to be more difficult than expected but the team stayed strong and managed to raise the fantastic amount of £1,346 plus gift aid of £301.25!
Taking on challenges throughout the day helped the Connex team keep their spirits high when the hunger pains attacked but more importantly, what kept them going was thinking about how the money they raised will help make a difference.
Mark Beedles, Managing Director at Connex Education said “At Connex we are really committed to raising money for good causes. We have held sponsored events for Comic Relief previously as well as taken part in campaigns in support of Claire House Children’s Hospice and Movember. Giving back to good causes is something we all believe in.”
“We all join in thanking everyone that showed their support toward our fundraising fast by either sponsoring us or spreading the word about our challenge; we certainly could not have done it without you.”
