7 members of the Annapurna Recruitment team will be running the London Marathon on 24th April 2016 in order to raise money for a variety of charities in conjunction with Annapurna Giving.
In 2014, company directors Nigel Fox, Charlie Appleyard and James Ballard decided to launch Annapurna Giving, a platform designed to give to the charities they felt strongly about. The organisations selected were a combination of environmental and social enterprise charities.
The London Marathon provides the opportunity for Annapurna to further support some great charities and a challenge to get round the 26.2 mile course as fast as possible however getting round will be an achievement in itself!
James Ballard, Jack Biddulph, Sam Filler, Liam Hughes & Daniel Smith will be running for Havens Hospice.
Becky Finnegan will be running for Amnesty International.
Sean Thornley will be running for the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity.
All of the runners are well into their training now and any donations would be much appreciated, with the money going straight to some great charities!
Little Haven’s Hospice is a member of Together for Short Lives. This amazing place helps children with life limiting injury, disease, or disability.
The charity is a place of love, life, and laughter and gives an exceptional service to families who otherwise would have limited support during extremely hard times. Receiving only 18% annual funding from the government the hospice needs to raise £2.5mil a year just to be able to survive.
Amnesty are the world’s largest grassroots human rights organisation. Their vision is a world in which every person enjoys all of the rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The work is particularly vital in our current world. They help fight the abuses of our human race. They bring torturers to justice, change oppressive laws, and free those who’ve been jailed just for voicing their opinion.
The Rainbow Trust help families that are in a desperate position. The Carers and support workers provide essential emotional and practical help to children with terminal illnesses and their families through their difficult time.
