PROFESSIONAL business services provider, K3 Capital Group plc, have announced their ambitious charity campaign across the group, titled Around the World in 30 Days.
From January 13, the group, who was recently named as the most active UK financial adviser, will be encouraging over 500 employees across their UK and overseas offices to collectively walk, run, swim, row or cycle around the world—that’s 25,000 miles to be precise!
To reach the target of 25,000 miles, multiple events have been arranged across the group during the campaign. The team at Knight Corporate Finance have pledged to cycle from Warrington to London. The team will be making the staggering 220-mile journey from their office in Warrington to their London HQ. The journey is estimated to involve at least 20 hours of cycling!
The group’s fundraising goal is to raise £25,000 in 30 days and its board have generously decided to donate the full £25,000—£1 for every mile—on behalf of their employees. The group have also secured sponsorship from corporate partners, to try and exceed their impressive fundraising goal.
The charities that will benefit from K3 Group’s campaign include child protection charity NSPCC, international development organisation We See Hope, mental health charity Mind, leading UK bowel cancer charity Bowel Cancer UK and Alder Hey Children’s Charity. In addition to these worthy causes, the group have decided to nominate further charities via employee suggestions as the 30-day event unfolds.
K3 Capital Group will be providing regular updates on the progress of the campaign via the company’s website www.k3capitalgroupplc.com including a live tracker detailing the distance covered and the amount raised to date, as well as frequent blog updates and information on the charities chosen by the group and its employees.
On the campaign, K3 Capital Group CEO John Rigby commented, “Everyone at the group is excited and motivated to raise as much money as possible for these fantastic charities. COVID has restricted our ability to run the usual office-based appeals with many of our staff working remotely, and so we wanted to organise something that allows them to take part from wherever they are, whilst also getting fitter, healthier, and ready to take on 2022!”
