To celebrate an exciting new partnership with Recycling Lives, Service Care Solutions honoured their year-long pledge to work alongside the charity by running the Spar City of Preston 10k.
The elevated race took place in Preston on Sunday 24 September, and saw 21 Service Care employees cross the finish line to support the charity’s cause. A total of £1,235 has been raised by the runners' friends, family, and colleagues, a donation that will have a profound impact.
“I’m elated with the efforts of each and every person who volunteered to represent Service Care at this event to celebrate our new relationship with Recycling Lives. It was a challenging course, even for those who participated with running experience and a natural knack for the sport, so to finish the race is a testament to the determination and mindset of the team”, said Joshua Holland, chair of social value and divisional lead for Service Care’s Social Care division.
Josh continued: “We are hoping this is the first of many business-led fundraising events over the next 12-months. I’m also confident that we will continue to see significant involvement from our workforce. Our brand values and goal to support the community are shared by all our people."
Recycling Lives aims to reduce homelessness and reoffending through delivering a number of programmes that support individuals back into employment and stable housing. The organisation also commits to tackling food poverty in the communities of Lancashire and Cumbria through their food redistribution plan, delivered in collaboration with FareShare.
Service Care Solutions continuously work alongside third-sector organisations and have built a reputation for giving back to the local community through collaborations with charities in and around the area. They have made key relationships with charities including Cash4Kids, Lancashire Teaching Hospitals, Friends of Winckley Square, High Five, and The Foxton Centre.
