Andrew and Rachel Parker, who work together at SDL, have raised £100k for good causes. Andrew is MD, SDL Auctions while Rachel is a regional property manager.
Now they will be pulling on their trainers to run the London Marathon on Sunday 26th April to raise money for Make a Wish, a charity that supports children with critical illnesses, and an organisation that the couple have volunteered with for 10 years.
Andrew said, “We’ve helped to raise £100k, now we want to challenge ourselves to do the full 26.2 miles and push that figure even higher. “I’ve just turned 50 and I’m not one to sit back and relax, so this is a personal challenge. We’ve loved working alongside so many amazing charities over the last few years. Everyone at SDL Auctions has been amazing in supporting the charity efforts of the network and I’m proud that we’ve been able to make a difference.”
Rachel added, “We spend a lot of time training. It’s great to do this as a couple as we motivate each other and keep focus. Having volunteered for the last decade, we know first-hand the great work Make a Wish does to create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. We’ll be using that to help get us over the finishing line.”
