At Sinclair & Rush, charity is at the heart of what we do. We’ve held a number of exciting events this year to raise funds for our charity of choice, Fields of Life. Just last week, Allan finally headed to Norway to complete the Fjord Challenge, where he spent two days completing two marathon treks.
Allan spent months preparing for this challenge, which was all for the purpose of raising funds to help support Fields of Life, a charity who works to supply clean drinking water to underprovided areas in Uganda. We always try to do whatever we can to help raise funds for this wonderful charity who changes the lives of thousands of people in Uganda.
Allan’s two-day trek through the Sunnmøre Alps brought him and the rest of the challengers face to face with steep climbs, long days and some of the most amazing views on earth. Allan has stated that the challenge was one of the hardest but most rewarding things he has ever done. However, the champagne reception at the end of the trail, combined with the knowledge that it was all for a wonderful cause – made every step worth it.
Allan’s efforts raised more than £2,300 for Fields of Life, which he is quite rightfully proud of. You can still donate, too – visit Allan’s JustGiving page if you’d like to help support Fields of Life.
The rest of the team has been busy, too! We also took part in the Thames Path Challenge which was a tough 30k walk in one day. The team enjoyed taking part in the physical challenge on a day with beautiful weather, and this, combined with the money raised for Fields of Life, made the day a great success.
Debbie Cameron, Head of Development and fundraising at Fields of Life, said: “We are very grateful to Allan and the team at Sinclair & Rush for the tremendous support. Thank you to all those who have donated. The funds raised will help us in our mission to bring clean safe drinking water to remote communities in East Africa. We have an ambitious strategy which seeks to invest in young people, promoting health and wellbeing, creating opportunities and growing the Fields of Life family. It is our ambition that by 2020, we would have positively impacted 500,000 of the most vulnerable and marginalised people in East Africa and to see their lives transformed. We are so grateful for the support we’ve received and look forward to continuing our work together for many more years to come.”
