1,000 miles in 5 days to support Leicestershire Cares Week
June 5-9 saw Nylacast employees participate in Leicestershire Cares week in aid of raising funds for the local charity which works with organisations to offer a kind, supportive hand to those less fortunate in the local communities of Leicester.
The week saw many member companies undertake various activities including sponsored silences and car washing to fund raise for the worthy cause.
Nylacast, avid members of Leicestershire Cares pledged a selection of its employees cover a sponsored 1,000 mile distance on treadmills and cycling machines. In support of the community the team beat this target covering just over 1,250 miles in total over the 5 days which raised £2,000 for the local community.
Management teams, engineers, apprentices and many more employees got together to endure the physical activity with a collective focus on the fundraising target.
Joanne Hudson, Membership Coordinator at Leicestershire Cares commented, ‘Cares Week has been both a powerful and empowering experience for all of our member companies who took part. Through the work we do, we aim to make a difference and have a positive impact on individuals facing incredibly diverse challenges. By working together with our members and partners, we can sustain this for the future.’
Nylacast has strong heritage in Leicester, established in the city since 1967 and now home to the company’s global headquarters. The local community plays an important part to Nylacast and its 400 local employees and it is for this reason coupled with undertaking effort for the greater good of humanity that Nylacast are passionate and keen supporters of Leicestershire Cares and its many outreach activities and projects.
