Arrows Group Half Marathon efforts for The Katie Piper Foundation

Arrows Group Half Marathon efforts for The Katie Piper Foundation

Five people from recruitment agency Arrows Group are running The Royal Parks Half Marathon through four of London’s Royal Parks on Sunday 7th October.  They will be hoping to raise over &pound1,000 in aid of the company’s chosen charity, The Katie Piper Foundation.  Katie Piper herself will be also running in the event and will be with the team beforehand.

The employees of Arrows Group were fortunate enough to meet Katie Piper at their AGM in May as she came to meet the 85 staff, tell her story and inspire all to take part in fundraising, no matter how small or large.

The staff in Arrows Group Waterloo offices will be undertaking a number of challenges and events to raise funds for the burns charity and aim to raise a total of &pound5,000 across the year.   “We’re delighted to support The Katie Piper Foundation in the knowledge that the monies we raise can be used to really make a difference to the lives of burns and scars survivors” says Adrian Treacy, Arrows Group Founder and COO.  “We support a different charity each year and are always finding new (and often painful!) ways to fundraise, and encourage as many employees as possible to get involved”.

This is just one of a number of events which Arrows Group will be partaking in over the year.

Launched in July 2010, The Katie Piper Foundation (www.katiepiperfoundation.org.uk) is a registered charity which aims to make it easier for people to live with burns and scars by progressing extended rehabilitation and scar management for burns survivors, providing information on and access to non-surgical treatments for burns and scars, campaigning for consistent clinical care and developing a support network for people living with burns and scars.   The Foundation helps disfigured people to reconnect with their lives and their communities.
