Annette and her team undertook a week of fundraising activities from 15-19th June with games and raffles to encourage donations. Her team challenge throughout the month of June was to “Race Around the Johnson Matthey (JM) sites” by either walking, cycling, or running the distance between each JM site in the UK & Ireland starting from JM in Cambridge. They travelled an incredible 1,308 miles!
Johnson Matthey Cambridge is currently undertaking charity fundraising as part of their community COVID-19 response and all employee donations will be matched by JM. As well as the sporting event, JM undertook a week of fundraising activities including a silent auction and a virtual games competition which were very well attended. The events were arranged for two main reasons. Annette explained “We selected CPSL Mind as one of the charities as we had an excellent resilience training course delivered by Ruth Brown last year and appreciate the good work you do”.
Catherine Keating, Community Fundraiser for CPSL Mind said, “The Covid-19 pandemic is affecting people’s mental wellbeing in many different ways and, in response to increased levels of anxiety, isolation and loneliness, we have adapted our existing services – and developed new ones. With demand for our services remaining high we are extremely grateful to Annette for highlighting the importance of exercise and mental health. The runners helped to raise awareness and funding for our services – a huge thank to everyone involved.”
