The team at Lincoln-based Visual Print and Design have set themselves the challenge to collectively walk one million steps throughout this month to raise money for Marie Curie.
The team aim to raise vital funds for the charity so it can continue to provide care and support for people living with any terminal illness across the UK.
Taking part will be Graham Hunstone, Scott Jones, Charlie Hartley, Sarah Lawrence, Rachael Hunt and Chloe Cockett, and the team have set a target to raise £300 via their JustGiving page.
Graham Hunstone, Managing Director at Visual Print and Design said: “It means a lot that the team have selected Marie Curie as our chosen charity for our next fundraising challenge.
“Marie Curie UK provided so much support to myself and family when I lost my Dad at the start of 2021 and it means a lot that we’re able to raise money for them during a time when Marie Curie Nurses and frontline staff are needed more than ever.”
The nurses at Marie Curie work night and day in people’s homes and their hospices offering specialist care, and they also support people emotionally, provide practical information, and match them with trained volunteers.
Lauren Alexander, Community Fundraiser for Lincolnshire for Marie Curie said: “What a challenge they have set themselves! I look forward to hearing their updates along the way.
“We are extremely thankful for their support especially during these unprecedented times.
“The money raised will ensure our nursing services within the county can attend to and support people who wish to stay at home during the end of the lives.”
Visual Print and Design will be concluding the challenge by coming together on March 31 for a final walk across Whisby Nature Reserve (pending lockdown restrictions easing).
