Three super-fit Santas from Putney-based MyHomeGroup, dropped in on local charity, Certitude’s Respite Centre in Wandsworth to deliver some early Christmas presents for staff and people staying there.
A team of 17 runners from MyHomeGroup are hoped to raise £2,000 for social care provider, Certitude, by taking part in the Santa Run in Battersea Park and delivering festive goodies into their training programme.
Will Clark, Managing Director, said, “Certitude provides wonderful support to local people with disabilities and we thought it would be a nice treat for Certitude staff and residents to drop in and say hello before the run on Sunday. The Respite Centre in Wardley Street is fantastic because it gives people an opportunity to mix with new people and experience different things, while their relatives who care for them can take a break. This respite can be so valuable in the build up to Christmas.”
Seema Sharma, Certitude’s Corporate Partnerships Manager said, “We are absolutely delighted to have so much support from the MyHomeGroup team. As well as running for us they have also pledged to support Certitude throughout the year with a range of volunteering and fundraising activities. We thank them wholeheartedly and look forward to a fun and fulfilling partnership in 2019.”
