Midshire kick-starts its fundraising activities

Over the last two months, Midshire has kick-started its yearly charity fundraising activities with a ‘Midshire Ramble’ and a 31-mile trek.

On Sunday March 3rd, eighteen employees of the print service provider and their families took part in a walk around Kinder Scout to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.

The ramble saw participants climb 332 meters and walk 10km around the National Nature Reserve in Derbyshire’s Peak District.

“The British Heart Foundation (BPF) is an instrumental figure in the fight against heart related illnesses,” explains Stuart Carruthers, technology sales manager at Midshire. “Midshire’s staff understand how important they are, and they do everything they can to support them in that fight.”

I’m always so inspired when Midshire get involved in our fundraising, they come up with unique ideas and really put their all into it

This is not the first time the company has raised money for the BPF. Previous initiatives include the Wilmslow Festive 10k and a gruelling ‘Midshire on Tour’ ‘coast-to-coast-and-back’ 290-mile bike ride.

Natalie Bunyan, fundraising manager at the BPF comments: “I’m always so inspired when Midshire get involved in our fundraising, they come up with unique ideas and really put their all into it, which is exactly the kind of enthusiasm we need in our fight to end heart break forever.”

On Saturday April 13th, Midwich employees, Dave Lewis and Adrian Low, walked 31-miles from Bewdley to Malvern, raising £125 for the Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity (BCHC), a cause close to Lewis’ heart.

“When my sister was seven, she was diagnosed with Spina Bifida, which threatened to confine her to a wheelchair and ultimately cut her life short,” explains Lewis. “Over the next 11 years she received the most amazing support from the Birmingham Children’s Hospital, which included two major operations.”

The pair described the trek as “a very long day with many challenging climbs.” After a total of 15 hours including a stretch in total darkness, they arrived at their endpoint feeling “very tired but incredibly proud of [their] achievement.”
