Members of the Belvoir Group’s Central Office team put their best foot forward recently to successfully complete an epic charity walk, raising almost £2,000 in the process for the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance.
The team, which consisted of 21 people, including senior directors from different brands within the Group, as well as apprentices and office staff, set off from the village of Croxton Kerrial to hike through the picturesque landscape of the Vale of Belvoir.
The team completed 11.5, 16 or 22 miles, with the final seven finishing after a determined battle through overgrown ferns and nettles.
The money raised also included a pledge of £150 from Agents Giving.
Speaking of the team’s success, Belvoir Group CEO, Dorian Gonsalves, said: “This was a fantastic achievement by everyone concerned. I am very proud of the team, who are delighted to have raised so much money, which will help contribute towards the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance Trust being able to continue its incredible lifesaving work. The charity receives no direct government funding, and I understand that £8m a year is required to keep the service operational, so all donations are very welcome.”
In addition to fundraising for charities in 2023, the Belvoir Group has a new project entitled 365 Days of Giving. This charity campaign encourages franchisees and team members from across the country to consider supporting local charities and community activities by volunteering their time.
A total of 266 days has been logged so far.
