A 50-STRONG team of employees will take on 10 charity events this month in a bumper fundraiser to help Edinburgh’s Sick Kids.

Staff from Head Resourcing are celebrating their company’s 10th anniversary with 10 charity events to raise a staggering &pound10,000 for the Sick Kids Friends Foundation and Candlelighters in Yorkshire, including a 10 mile swim and a 100 mile cycle.

On Friday 14 October, the company’s Managing Director Gordon Adam will run 100km (61miles), in 10 hours between Glasgow and Edinburgh along the Forth and Clyde and Union canals.

Gordon said: “I’ve thought about this for a few months but finally decided to attempt it recently when I managed to run from our office in Edinburgh, home to Stirling. However, the 100km will be the equivalent of an additional marathon and way beyond any distance I’ve previously run. I’m hoping the generosity of donations will keep me struggling on in those last kilometres.”

Rachel McKenzie,Community Fundraising Manager at Sick Kids Friends Foundation,said: “I think this is a great way for Head Resourcing to celebrate their ten year milestone and I would like to say a big thanks to all of the staff taking part. They are going above and beyond to secure donations for the Sick Kids Friends Foundation and we are all extremely grateful. Scotland’s sick kids will truly benefit from the cash boost. 

We are currently driving a fundraising initiative to raise &pound68,000 for new CUSA brain surgery equipment which will be able to remove tumours in children."

Head Resourcing’s employees are also taking part in nine other events including a football match between a Scottish Business Select team and the Hearts Legends which will involve several senior financial services managers. The company have also held a zumbathon and a quiz night in recent weeks.

Head Resourcing’s Marketing and Communications Executive Ann Russell said: “We celebrated our 10th birthday with a party but also felt we should do something more meaningful. As a business we want to think beyond making money and give something back to the local community, which is why Head Resourcing is happy to match what our staff raise. We have a charity committee who identified a shortlist of charities. There was then a company vote and Sick Kids and Candlelighters won. Working together as a team and organising fund-raising activities is not only beneficial for our chosen charities but also very positive for the culture of Head – and it’s been fun doing it!”
