2015, Arefco Annual Charity Walk – Downs Syndrome North East
19th June 2015
This year Arefco’s sponsored walk will take us away from the coast and into rural Northumberland. We are doing a circular 10 mile walk which starts and ends in Rothbury with a “climb” up Simonside in the middle.
Every year we aim to fundraise for a charity which has a connection to the business. 2015’s charity is Downs Syndrome North East. DSNE has given massive support over the years to Melissa Redpath’s family to help them care for her brother Morgan.
Melissa, who works in HR at Arefco, is a good advocate for DSNE and the work they do with families who have children with Downs Syndrome. Like many charities DSNE relies on volunteers and donations and so any money we can raise will allow them to continue supporting young adults like Morgan and their families.
We are hoping to build on the success of the walks in 2013 and 2014 when we raised £2,241 and £2,418 respectively.
If you would like to help us reach our target please go to www.justgiving.com/Melissa-Redpath. Any donations are greatly appreciated.
