We are delighted to announce a new charity partnership… Ward Goodman, the Dorset based firm of Chartered Accountants and Independent Financial Advisers have chosen us as their Charity of the Year.
The first fundraising event they are going to do is the 5k Zombie Run. It was due to take place on 21st October, but is postphoned until 11th November due to Storm Brian! The company has entered a team of 10 people with a target of £2,000 to raise.
Ward Goodman understand the importance of good mental health
, Director at Ward Goodman, commented “As mental health problems can affect anyone, and with around one in four people suffering some form of mental health problem during their lifetime, we hope the donation will help tackle this growing issue in our home county
“We love it when our staff get fully on-board with our fundraising events, and in the past they’ve done swims, runs, parachute jumps and fancy dress. However, having to survive a 5km run without being ‘infected’ by zombies is certainly on another level and I’m sure they’ll do really well!”
The run itself encourages physical health and team-building
, and that in turn has great effects on wellbeing
. We’re hope that Ward Goodman benefits from taking part as much as we do!
