PPDS UK raises money for children’s hospice

Staff members at PPDS UK have recently taken part in a 25-mile walk to fundraise for a local children’s hospice.

The team raised £6,000 for the hospice by walking 25 miles along the River Thames

For the fourth year running the team has supported the annual Airwave Europe endurance event by trekking along the Thames Path. This year PPDS raised £6,000 to support children with life-limiting conditions. 

In 2018 Airwave Europe hosted its first annual charity event to raise funds for the Chestnut Tree House children’s charity and hospice. 

Each year, the hospice cares for 300 children and young adults aged between 0 and 19 in the East and West Sussex, Brighton and Hove, and South East Hampshire areas at a cost of over £3.5m per person.

To raise funds for this vital service Airwave calls on the Audio Visual industry to take part in a gruelling endurance event. Past challenges have included the Three Peaks Challenge in 2018, the South Downs Marathon in 2019, and the North Downs Marathon in 2021.

This year, participants completed a 25-mile walk along the River Thames, starting at Henley on Thames in Oxford and ending at Windsor in Surrey. 

Kendra Ingram, business manager of Professional TV at PPDS UK says: “I started my running career – starting with Couch to 5k – during 2020 and having the opportunity to raise vital funds for this very worthy charity has been a fantastic way of bringing extra benefits from my fitness efforts this year.

“Together with my colleagues in the UK team, we have supported the Airwave endurance event annually since its creation and I have walked every year.”

Ingram adds: “Helping to raise funds for the incredible care provided by the Chestnut Tree House is worth every step and every painful blister sustained along the way. My thanks to Airwave Europe who have raised tens of thousands of pounds for the charity since 2018, and to all those who took part and kindly donated.”
