Super fit Kinetic race to raise 1,300 for employees son
Running fanatics at Engineering & Manufacturing recruitment specialists Kinetic plc have won the Medium Business category at the 2009 BUPA 10K Great Yorkshire Business Run. More importantly, their efforts raised a fund of 1,300 to provide financial support for Leighton Jones (son of Kinetics long standing employee, Margaret Paweleck), who has complications following his 3rd Kidney transplant in March 2009. Having been in intensive care for the last 5 months, Leighton and his family have experienced the obvious implications of him being unable to work.
Margaret Paweleck, Operational Support Manager at Kinetic said:
I really appreciate the Kinetic running team undertaking this race to support what has been a difficult and distressing time. I am totally overwhelmed that 1,300 was raised by my colleagues this will go a long way to helping my sons family with their everyday living expenses whilst he remains in hospital.
Rachael Fecitt, Human Resources Manager at Kinetic added:
Margaret is a valued employee of Kinetic and has worked here for 15 years. Knowing what she and her family are going through with Leighton being ill, we wanted to provide some tangible support. I am equally proud of both the staff who gave up their Sunday to partake in the race and the amazing personal generosity of Kinetics employees, their friends and family during these difficult economic times.
