European credit management, Lowell has completed a 24-hour relay to raise money for their charity partners, Turning Lives Around and MyBnk.
The relay started at Lowell’s Leeds based office, with over 90 colleagues from across the business completing 30-minute slots to raise money for charity. Colleagues took to a variety of different challenges to complete the relay with everything from running, cycling, yoga and martial arts included.
Lowell colleagues faced challenging conditions with heavy rain and scorching sunshine thrown into the mix across the 24 hours. There was great comradery, especially for those completing overnight slots, with a WhatsApp chat to encourage team members and share photos of their completed activities.
Kevin Peirson, Head of Customer Relations & Lowell Giving Involve Group member, said “Working with the Lowell Giving Involve Group to organise this event has been a real highlight for me. It’s fantastic to see teams coming together to raise awareness around such great causes. And I can’t wait to see the difference the money we’ve raised makes to our charity partners, hand-in-hand with the volunteering work we are also undertaking.”
Steve Hoey, Turning Lives Around CEO, said “We are extremely grateful to the people at Lowell for choosing Turning Lives Around as one of their charity partners. The partnership and relationship we are developing through practical support at our schemes and fundraising events like the relay, mean a great deal to us and our clients. Like most charities, the current economic climate is proving tough for us and every penny we receive will be put to very good use enabling some of the most vulnerable people in our communities who are either homeless or at risk of homelessness to turn their lives around.”
