Proserv’s fundraising efforts around the business are in full swing and it’s fantastic to see so many of you coming together in aid of charity.

Coast 2 Coast for Charlie’s House

A team of 30 from each of our UK locations are busy training for next month’s Proserv Coast 2 Coast Fundraising Challenge. They will be cycling coast to coast from North Scotland’s Ardgay to Ullapool and back again; and just in case that wasn’t challenging enough, the cycle will take place on 7-8 October – not the warmest time in the Highlands!

Raising much needed funds for Charlie House will be their motivation – an Aberdeen-based children’s charity which supports children with complex disabilities and life limiting conditions. Their ultimate goal is to build a specialist care facility for children and their families. If you would like to donate please click here – their goal is to raise £1,500 and we look forward to helping them achieve this. Good luck team!

Great Aberdeen Run

Around 8,000 runners took part in Aberdeen’s first-ever Great Aberdeen Run with eight of Proserv’s half-marathon participants making it round a hot, and at times, cobbled course. Our team however still managed to come in first in the large business challenge category for the run!

Injury and late call offs meant we had one 10K finisher – well done Christine Thorne! Well done to those involved!

Sam Rides Across Britain

Sam Hanton, Vice President, Subsea Services, participated in the Deloitte Ride Across Britain (9-17 September). Taking in the sights from Land’s End to John O’Groats, Sam cycled a staggering 969 miles over nine days, including ascending 15,000m which is almost twice the height of Mount Everest!

Sam said: “It seemed like a good idea a year ago, and should keep me competitive in the Proserv ‘World Tour’ mileage stakes! It also seemed a great opportunity to do some fund-raising for a couple of local charities – Light UP and Maggie’s. As such I’d be extremely grateful for any sponsorship donations, and I’ll be logging my daily progress (however slow and painful) on both Strava and Facebook from 9 September. Thanks for your support!” To donate click here.

The Sky’s the Limit for Richard

Richard Berry, Production Supervisor at Howemoss, recently completed a skydive which saw him thrown out of a plane at 10,000 feet at a speed of 120mph! He has successfully raised over £800 for his nominated charities, including CLIC Sargent and Brain Tumour Research. It’s not too late to donate; Richard’s fundraising pages are at: (CLIC Sargent) (Brain Tumour Research)
