My story

[p]Thank you for visiting our page. [/p][p]This year we are delighted to announce that we will be raising money for Action For Children, as our employees support them as our chosen charity for 2018.[/p][p][b]Up Next:[/b][/p][p]Our Finance Director Andrew Baker will be running in the Leicester Marathon on Sunday 14th October. Good luck Andrew, we know you can do it![/p][p][b]Chester Marathon Success:[/b][/p][p]On Sunday 7th October, 9 P&A employees will be taking on yet another huge challenge, this time being the prestigious Chester Marathon! Please support us if you can, with every penny donated going towards Action for Children.[/p][p][b]Past events:[/b][/p][p]On Sunday 9th September 2018, Steve Morgan and P+A Fencing & Timber Technical Manager, John Vaughan took on the gruelling IRONMAN Wales challenge in Tenby, both completing, with Steve making it his [b]fifth[/b] Ironman to date![/p][p]Throughout the year, employees will run in marathons, and in October 50 will even run in the Flintshire 10k challenge dressed as pandas.[/p][p]We kicked off our fundraising for the Charity by taking on the iconic London Marathon in April, where Managing Director Steve Morgan, Financial Director Andrew Baker and Fencing & Timber Buildings Manager John Vaughan ran to raise money for Action for Children.[/p][p]Steve finished in 04:19:15, just behind Andrew at 03:58:47 and John, who suffered with back pain still powered through and finished in 05:36:50.[/p][p]Supporting children and young people is something the company is extremely passionate about, and this year employees chose to raise money for Action for Children, a vital cause that provides help to children who need it most.[/p][p]In the UK alone there are over 1.5 million children suffering from some form of neglect. All money we raise this year as a company will go towards helping this vital cause continue to do their amazing work so every pound you donate will make a huge difference.[/p][p]For example, just £5 could pay for emergency overnight support for a young person on the verge of homelessness. £10 could help pay for swimming and hydrotherapy lessons for a child with a disability. £20 could pay for food parcels to help parents with feeding their children nutritious meals and a £50 donation could pay for a one-to-one counselling session for a child who has been abused.[/p][p]As a company, we have always raised money for charity and in the last five years we have specifically chosen one each year to support. To raise money, we have participated in various events, from marathons, cycling to Paris, the Welsh 14 Peaks Iron Men challenges to sponsored football matches and even ‘It’s A Knockout’.[/p][p]This will be the fourth year that the Rhyl Schools Triathlon has run, and this is the result of being inspired by Steve and John taking part in the Wales Ironman Challenge.[/p][p]The whole company will all commit to getting behind the fundraising and work as a team, whether that be through major sporting challenges or smaller events as every penny counts.[/p][p]Last year, Steve and John took part in a number of gruelling events, completing a grand total of 1,000 miles each for Cancer Research UK. As well as that, a number of employees helped to raise over £20,000 by committing to events such as marathons, a 10k run where 45 staff completed and a 10,000 step a day challenge, to name a few.[/p]
