We are very proud to announce that the Cystic Fibrosis Trust is our charity of choice for 2010.
The first benefit – a dinner and charity auction for Eclectic’s suppliers and friends – was held in March at Embargo59 where £10,000 was raised for the cause.
In April, our company’s Managing Director, Reuben Harley, and Marketing Manager, Nikki Ritchie, ran the London Marathon and raised a further £2,541.
The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is the UK’s only national charity dealing with all aspects of this debilitating condition, funding research to treat the symptoms of CF and to discover effective treatments. The Trust also aims to ensure appropriate healthcare for those with Cystic Fibrosis and provides information, advice and support to people with CF and their families across the UK.
Reuben Harley said “Although running the London Marathon might be seen as a challenge, it is nothing compared to the challenges faced daily by sufferers from this crippling disease. Nikki and I were determined to make a difference and completed the course and achieved the maximum promised by our sponsors!”
Sarah Guthrie, fundraising director of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust said “The event at Embargo59 was a huge success and we are thrilled that Eclectic is continuing to support the trust by taking part in the London Marathon.
