We like to go the extra mile for our clients – but November will see a trio of ATTAIN staff run 100 miles each in aid of local poverty and homelessness charity, The Brick.
Customer Services Manager Jackie Salt, Head of Operations Stuart Gent and Business Development Manager Tim George have set themselves the challenge in order to raise £1000 to help people who face sleeping on the streets this winter.
The team will run twice a week together to hit their target, and the money raised will be donated to local charity The Brick, which provides a shelter, foodbank and an advice service to people across the Wigan borough who are in need.
Jackie said: “As a proud Wigan business it really affects the team when we see people on our doorsteps who are struggling – so we want to do our bit to help make sure no person in our community is left behind.
“Tim, Stuart and I are a mixed bag when it comes to our running abilities – but we’re all equally as competitive when it comes to getting the best running time!
“We are proud to be raising money for such a worthy cause, and we’re inviting our colleagues and customers to get behind The Brick and support us as we get running this November.”
