Veritech’s very own credit controller, Joanna Oldridge, will be taking on the immense 58km Jurassic Coast Challenge in support of the Make-A-Wish foundation, a charity providing life changing wishes to children with critical illnesses. Having completed many challenges in the past, Jo’s undertaking a gruelling training schedule 5 days a week in order to prepare for the massive task ahead. In the past Jo’s raised money for Breast Cancer UK, but says:
“I’m about to be a grandma and the thought of a young child being ill knowing you couldn’t help would be absoutely heartbreaking, It made me realise how difficult it must be for the parents of these kids. Thankfully there is a way we can help make the lives of the parents and kids easier – So i’m delighted to be raising money for Make-A-Wish and thank anyone who can support the fundraiser, no matter how small a donation.”
Remember to use gift aid when donating if you’re a UK taxpayer, it costs no more and gives Make-A-Wish 25% extra on behalf of the goverment.
