Each year everyone at User Vision nominates a different charity to raise funds for, and then we spend the year raising as much money as we can for them with lots of different activities. For instance last year we cycled from John O’Groats to Edinburgh (on a static bike in our office!) and raised hundreds of pounds for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
This year our chosen charity is Tearfund, a fantastic organisation (UK Charity Registration No. 265464), that provides disaster relief and tackles poverty internationally.
We all have homes to return to at night, are not affected by natural disasters and can access clean drinking water. Millions around the world do not. Tearfund launched in 1968 and in the last 10 years has helped:
- More than 17 million people through community development projects
- More than 7.6 million people to recover from and prepare for disasters.
We look forward to raising as much as we can to help with their beneficial causes.
User Vision are breaking a sweat for two fund-raising events for TearFund.
- We’ll be entering a relay team to run the Hairy Haggis Edinburgh Marathon on May 29th
- then on 11th June we’ll be running in the Gung Ho 5K Obstacle course, which looks like a version of It’s a Knock-out in a giant soft-play area!
We would really appreciate your support by donating to out nominated charity.
