In 1995 The Railway Children was launched, to stop the abuse of children living alone and at the risk on the streets, through early intervention. Comms-care has been supporting the charity since 2008 through various charitable events and it’s through the willingness and dedication of their employees that has kept the fundraising consistent.
Last year, Mark Forster, Operations Manager at Comms-care competed at the CRN fight night to raise funds for The Railway Children and this year two more employees Joey Ghader and Gary Simpson took on the challenge to compete in this year’s fight night raising a total of £2,839.01 for the worthwhile charity.
In July, Ged Bowker took part in the Coast to Coast walk starting at St Bees, Cumbria and finishing at Robin Hoods bay on the Yorkshire coast. The walk averaged up to six miles a day completing a staggering 192 miles over twelve days. A keen walker, Ged successfully completed the walk after battling through treacherous weather, blisters and wet feet to raise £625.65.
Dave Ellis, Corporate Partnerships Manager for The Railway Children commented: “I would like to congratulate Joey, Ged, Gary on their achievements and most all thank them for raising this incredible amount for The Railway Children. Without people like this we would be unable to continue our work to help children across India, the UK and East Africa. The money will help to feed, clothe and treat abandoned children. Thank you Comms-care for your continued support.”
