The self-styled ‘Pickfords Witches of Eastwood’ completed this weekend’s Pretty Muddy event in Derby this weekend, raising over £1,200 for Cancer Research UK!
Well done to Laura Abbey, Amy Chambers, Chantelle Benniston, Charlotte Randall, Georgina Langley and Rachel Walsh from Pickfords’ Nottingham branch for finishing the 5k race on Saturday for Pickfords’ partner charity.
The Derby Pretty Muddy is a large obstacle course over a mixture of terrains, set in 200 acres of parkland within Markeaton Park. As the name suggests, getting muddy is an integral part of the experience!
All funds raised will be donated to Cancer Research UK, supporting research towards the charity’s ultimate goal: bringing forward the day when we beat cancer.
Pickfords, the UK’s largest and best known removals and storage company, has announced a change in its CSR policy and the principal charity it supports. Pickfords will now be supporting Cancer Research UK, the world’s largest independent cancer research charity, dedicated to its vision to beat cancer sooner.
The decision to support Cancer Research UK underpins a new objective; to create a healthier workplace for Pickfords employees.
The new partnership means Pickfords employees will have access to a range of health information to keep them better informed about cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Understanding changes in lifestyle choices and the adoption of healthy habits will help to reduce the risk of developing cancer and to know how to spot cancer early.
Pickfords’ Managing Director, Russell Start said,
“We felt the time was right to work with a charity with new objectives. It is likely that all of us have been touched by cancer at some point in our lives, so I hope we will all benefit from improved awareness and will get behind our fundraising activities to support the search for a cure.”
