Throughout November last year our team stepped between all our design studios starting at our HQ in Warrington to Liverpool, Manchester, London and Berlin and back and incredibly we reached our 2000 miles target in the first couple of weeks! So, we decided to do it all over again reaching our ultimate goal of 4000 miles (8 million steps).
It was a great challenge, keeping all of us fit whilst fundraising at the same time. All the money raised for the Open-Door Charity will make a difference to young people suffering with mental health issues.
The current lockdown meant that we had to hold a virtual handover and whilst it is sad not to be able to hand over in person we are looking forward to visiting the Centre when it is possible to see how the money raised has made a difference.
Greg Edwards, Head of Change & Development said: Thank you so much for the fantastic work the team has put into this fundraising initiative and the incredible amount of money you were able to raise we are really grateful to have worked with Ellis Williams over the past few months.
