Local Business Runs for Charity

Local Business Runs for Charity
 
Staff from Concept IT, a recruitment company in Dudley are celebrating after successfully completing a 5km run at the Baggeridge Country Park on 9th July in aid of childrens charity Barnardos. The team of 8, all of varying ages and levels of fitness are aiming to raise an impressive 1000 for the charity, and donations are still being received and counted.
 
Currently one in three children lives in poverty in the UK.  Money raised from the Baggeridge 5k run will help fund Barnardos vital work with children, young people and their families in over 390 specialised projects in local communities.   As a member of the End Child Poverty coalition, Barnardos are campaigning to influence both the public and government, in order to ensure governments own target of eradicating child poverty by 2020 is met.
 
Chris Short, Managing Director of Concept IT saidAs a company we are committed to raising money for charity and I am really proud that the team has really taken the cause to heart and tackled this event head on.  Most of us have never entered a competitive race before and Im delighted with our fundraising total.  Raising money for Barnardos means a lot to me and I truly believe that every child deserves the best start in life and to be given the chance to fulfil their potential. With the right help, committed support and a little belief, even the most vulnerable children can turn their lives around. I want to thank the race organisers and everyone who participated and made it such a special event.
