Dexam’s product manager, Helen Boardman, completed the Walk the Wight challenge in support of Ronald McDonald House Charities last month.
The team of friends raised 150% of their original target for the charity, which had supported a close friend for 18 months while their child was receiving treatment at St George’s Hospital.
Helen joined 7,800 other walkers to complete the 26.5 mile walk from the east to the west coast of the Isle of Wight.
The Ronald McDonald House Charities have 14 locations based near the most specialist children’s hospitals around the UK. They house families who have children being cared for or undergoing treatment in these hospitals.
The Dexam Trust sponsors and supports many charities and funds but when a member of staff or member of the ‘Dexam family’ takes on a challenge, the trust always endeavours to support and Helen’s achievements justified a very well-earned donation.
The Dexam Trust also supports many local West Sussex organisations such as Stone Pillow, Challengers Bumblebee Conservation Trust, UK Harvest and many more.
