Being a Sheffield based company we work tirelessly to raise money for Special Olympics Sheffield - an organisation that's been around for more than 50 years and who's main goal is to ensure that adults and children with intellectual disabilities still have the same opportunity to participate in sports training and athletic competitions.
In 2019 alone, we have already raised money through our annual easter bake-off competition and through a treadmill challenge whereby staff had to run a full marathon distance between them. The Mayor of Sheffield also paid us a visit to cheer on the participants.
Our colleague Matt is also raising money for Special Olympics Sheffield by running the London Marathon this April. So far he has managed to raise close to his £2000 target! Click here if you would like to help him reach his target!
