On Saturday 22 June 2019 a team of 25 Ellacotts staff and Partners embarked upon a gruelling 20 mile Walkathon to raise money for our Charity of the Year 2018-2019 Mind UK.
Starting at the Ellacotts office in Banbury at the early time of 7:30am, we walked along the Jurassic Way for 20 miles stopping off at various villages including Middleton Cheney, Wardington, Chipping Warden, Woodford Halse and lastly finishing in the stunning village of Hellidon.
We are so proud that we’ve smashed our £5,000 target but we would love to raise even more to help support the amazing work Mind do, if you wish to donate please visit our fundraising page.
David Stevens, Managing Partner, said:
“We’re really proud of our fantastic team for completing our 20 mile Walkathon on Saturday. We were very lucky with the weather and had a great support team who kept us going with refreshments throughout the day. We’re delighted to have beaten our target and raised over £5,000 for Mind and would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has donated and supported us.”
Every year, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem. But hundreds of thousands of people are still struggling.
