All staff at National Locums to climb Ben Nevis for charity
All 27 members of staff at National Locums offices at Milton Keynes Business Centre, Linford Wood, have signed up to climb Ben Nevis this summer in aid of Leo’s Appeal, the fundraising drive to enhance children’s services at Milton Keynes Hospital.
The company, which supplies locum doctors to NHS and independent hospitals throughout the UK, has adopted Leo’s Appeal as its charity of the year, and has set a target of raising £10,000.
The decision to climb Ben Nevis - at 4,409ft the highest mountain in Britain – will be the cornerstone of a programme of fundraising activity. Says National Locums director Natalie Cook: “We asked our people whether they would join in a sponsored climb of Ben Nevis, and we were really pleased that every one of them volunteered.”
The climb will mark the climax of National Locums’ fundraising programme, including&hellip&hellip
A series of cake and doughnut sales, including running a cake stall in the reception area at Milton Keynes Hospital.
A charity auction at the Naidni restaurant in Stony Stratford on 10 April, where prizes will include items donated by Tottenham Hotspur FC and nine local companies, and
A collection at the Kingston shopping centre, Milton Keynes on 26 and 27 April.
Leo’s Appeal was voted charity of the year by National Locums staff following the success of a Christmas collection which raised £420 to buy toys for the children’s ward.
