The Employee Benefits team here at EBCam Ltd, has set themselves the challenge of walking from Land’s End to John O’Groats…and back again to raise money for two local charities Cambridge City Foodbank and Suffolk Mind.
James Bolton, Managing Director, said, “since we went into lockdown we have had virtual team meetings every day and one of the things that often came up was around walking – either encouraging the team to do so or sharing stories of walks the team had been on. This gave us the idea that we should put some of the miles to even better use and raise some vital funds for local charities. We understand how hard-hit charities have been in the wake of the current crisis and we are looking forward to playing our part and giving something back.”
We have so far covered over 500 miles of the 1,748-mile trip and have set ourselves a challenge of completing it by 4th July. If we do complete our walk before hand then we will continue walking, trying to possibly walk the distance from London to New York, in a nod to Independence Day on the day we complete the challenge.
Our team of 8 people are sharing our photos and distances on a weekly basis and are asking for donations via our fundraising page. EBCam has also agreed to match fund every £1 raised up to a maximum of £1,000.
We are a specialist employee benefits consultancy supporting ambitious businesses review and implement a comprehensive benefit packages to attract and retain the best employees. EBCam want to support companies who want to Care for, Reward and Engage their employees to help them and their business Thrive.
