Yorkshire Children’s Trust relies heavily on donations to help support our work so we can help the most vulnerable, sick and disabled children in our community. We are always happy to hear about new unique ways that people raise money. We were excited to hear from Ice Co, the leading ice provider in the UK who wanted to raise money for as many charities as possible with a truly unique challenge, by going around the world.
The team undertook walks, cycling, swimming and running to help cover the equivalent distance of going around the Earth! It was no east feet!, but the team completed 25,000 miles in just 153 days. The Ice Co. donated 50p for every mile covered, and along with a raffle of sportswear, the team raised a truly staggering £13,600 which has been used to support over 20 charities, including Yorkshire Children’s Trust who are extremely honoured to be selected to receive an £800.00 donation.
We would like to thank every team member for taking part in this fantastic and unique challenge and we are pleased to showcase just a few of their pictures on this post. We would also like to thank The Ice Co. for nominating Yorkshire Children’s Trust as one of the beneficiaries of the raised funds. Just like all donations, as we cover our core costs with recycling, 100% of the money raised will be used to support some of the most needy children in our community.
