TRAD UK Takes on Autumn Charity Challenges


TRAD UK, which has raised more than £100,000 for local and national charities over the past few years, is planning its charity challenges for the autumn as part of 2023’s fundraising campaign.

TRAD is supporting Marie Curie Cancer Care, Anthony Nolan and Cancer Research UK – all charities chosen by staff, and has already completed a couple of challenges this year, in addition to ongoing fundraising within its depots and offices.

“Last year’s golf day was a tremendous success,” says Ros Howe, Director of HR at TRAD. “We were so delighted to see our customers take part, and we’re really pleased that we are already nearly fully booked for this year’s event in September.”

Alongside the golf day, TRAD has a team of runners preparing for the Bournemouth Half Marathon, which takes place on October 8th. “Many of our people find that training for an event like this is a great way to manage both their physical and mental health,” says Ros. “We’ve encouraged as many people as possible to think about taking on this challenge – not just for our charities but for themselves too.”

“It’s important to everyone at TRAD to support these great causes,” adds Colin Dobson, MD at TRAD UK. “From Women’s World Cup sweepstakes to our corporate golf day, our people go above and beyond to help us raise money. We are very grateful to them and to the customers and suppliers that have also supported us so far this year.”
