We start this New Year with the exciting announcement of our chosen charity for 2018 where any events or fundraising activities undertaken this year will see donations pledged to this charity.
This year we have chosen to support a local independent charity; the Romsey Young Carers.
Romsey Young Carers was founded in 2004 and as the name suggests, the charity provides support and respite to young carers aged from 5-25 years through offering positive life experiences as well as giving them the opportunity to meet other young people in similar situations so that they know that they are not alone.
The first event we’re holding for the charity will be Curry Business on Tuesday 20th March. The event will include a three course curry and informal networking with a host of other local Hampshire businesses.
No strangers to charity fundraising, 2016 saw the team run the Great South Run for Parkinson’s UK in support for Dave Morris, the owner of Kyudokan Karate, and we’ll be letting our legs do the talking when we take part in a team sponsored spin on 24/25 Feb to raise money for Dave’s personal fight against Parkinson’s – you can read more about that plight here
