Career Moves Group employees to run 10km for charity
The athletic five Steve, Eleanor, Richard, Amy and Billy are training furiously to be ready for the London run, which takes in many of London’s iconic landmarks. Starting on Piccadilly and ending inWhitehall just north of the Cenotaph, around 25,000 runners from all over the UK and overseas will run in whatever weather condition raising money for charity.
LALUis currently in the throes of raising funds for complementary therapy, allowing the fund to offer free therapies to haematology patients and families at the new cancer centre on Huntley Street and on the wards at UCH. Such therapy can really lift the spirits of leukaemia and lymphoma sufferers. One patient in day-care commented, “Whilst I was having reflexology I actually felt well. It was the only time I have felt like that since the moment I first got my diagnosis and it was such an enjoyable feeling”
LALUis also gearing up to fund phase 4 of their young adults unit for patients 19 with facilities for a future day room and relaxation area. With so many positive initiatives being developed by LALU for patients, Career Moves Group and others supporting the charity are trying to raise as much money as possible.
Speaking about why Career Moves Group supports LLU as a charity, Tom Simons, Head of HR Moves and Eleanor Karadimitriadis, Head of PR Moves said “We chose LALU after hearing about the charity from a good friend who’s a nurse on the ward. She let us know about the type of care they give patients in the unit, and also about fundraising that’s done for the doctors, nurses, and professionals on the ward – enabling them to give better care to patients”.
