On Sunday the 28th October 13 of Abbeychart’s bravest are taking part in an Inflatable 5K Obstacle Run at Newbury Showground with names like ‘The Plummet’, ‘Ripple Runner’ and ‘Leap of Faith’ giving some idea of what participants are up against.
“This is the first fundraiser we have organised for our official charity of the year, ‘Just a Drop’, explained Mark Taylor, managing director, Abbeychart “and we are really hoping to get off to a great start by raising as much as we can towards our fundraising target for the year which is £8,750.”
Since the work began in 1998, Just A Drop ha sreached 1.4 million people in 32 countries. Currently the focus of its work is in areas such as Cambodia, India, Kenya, Nicaragua, Uganda and Zambia where the priority is to provide safe water, sanitation and hygiene solutions in areas where they are not readily available.
“We are encouraging friends and family as well as our suppliers, customers and colleagues within the industry to really dig deep and support team Abbeychart by making a donation on our dedicated Just Giving page.
“The money we raise will fully fund a project to provide the 400 or so children of Kikumini Primary School, Kenya with access to clean and safe water to allow the children in this community to regularly attend school and be safely hydrated. For that reason all donations will be very gratefully received.”
