Employees from PERI UK have successfully completed the summer’s Big Hike Challenge, raising substantial funds for Cancer Research UK.
The charity event saw the company employees taking on a demanding hike in Loch Lomond and the South Coast, exceeding 26 miles, in solidarity and determination to support the cancer research cause.
Cancer Research UK, dedicated to preventing, diagnosing, and treating cancer, is PERI UK’s chosen charity of the year. This year’s event witnessed the strong commitment and generosity of PERI UK employees, who managed to raise over £10,800 for the charity through their participation in the hikes.
This event was part of PERI’s broader initiative to contribute more to local and national charities. In a strategic partnership, employees from Cidon Construction also participated in the Loch Lomond hike under their ‘Making a Difference’ fundraising campaign, teaming up with PERI to make a substantial joint donation.
Tracy Armstrong, Head of Marketing at PERI UK, expressed her enthusiasm about the initiative. “This is the biggest fundraising event we’ve taken part in since before COVID-19. We’re committed to increasing our contribution to local and national charities and are even more encouraged by the amount we’ve raised from these two events alone,” she said.
Armstrong further added, “Whilst we raise money for charity through our local offices, events like this are great at bringing our colleagues together from all over the UK for a good cause.”
In their continued efforts to support charity events, PERI employees will also participate in the Night Shine Walk for Cancer Research UK scheduled for September this year. The commitment displayed by PERI employees not only exemplifies corporate social responsibility but also reinforces the power of collective efforts in making a significant impact in the community.
