Dalcour Maclaren chose Bloodwise as their charity partner in January 2019, kicking off the partnership with a fantastic ‘Wear Red for Bloodwise’ day.
In order to hit their £25,000 fundraising target for 2019, staff from across their offices in the UK have come together to embrace their sporty sides. In April, one employee from Dalcour Maclaren’s Bicester office did an amazing job running the iconic London Marathon for Bloodwise.
Next up, an impressive 13 teams took part in the Bloodwise Blenheim Palace Triathlon in June, the world’s only triathlon to take place in a World Heritage Site. The triathletes tackled a 750m swim in the lake, 20km cycle ride and 5.4km run through the grounds of the palace – and one member of staff even took on the triathlon across both days of the weekend! We had a brilliant time cheering them on.
Not stopping there, their next challenge was a 106km cycle ride from Leamington Spa to their office in Bicester. Despite the rain and many detours, it was a hugely successful day and all cyclists completed the ride and are now fully recovered!
Approaching fundraising from a slightly different angle, members of their Cheshire and Mansfield office received votes via their JustGiving page to determine who took on their charity wax off, which I’m sure all involved agreed was an equally daunting challenge! It was a great success – the live stream of the event reached 1321 views, and the total raised from the waxing and pub quiz later that evening was a smooth £2,296! We can’t wait to see how they get on, continuing what is already looking to be a fantastic year of fundraising!
