Outreach Youth

To show our support for our LGBTQ+ co workers and LGBTQ+ youth within the local community, this Pride Month we are proud to be fundraising for Outreach Youth, an Ipswich-based LGBTQ+ youth charity working to ensure all young people can reach their full potential.

As well as this, for every £5 a person donates to our fundraising page will count as one raffle ticket for the chance to win a vintage Apple WWDC t-shirt!

“Outreach youth is committed to enabling Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans*, Queer and Questioning (LGBTQ+) young people and their peers, to realise their unique potential and to take a positive role in society, through their involvement and participation in social and informal education youth work opportunities.”

RoC 24

Alongside our existing CSR and community work, our team regularly enjoys participating in challenges and fundraising events for charities that are important to them.

Most recently, our senior marketing consultant, Kara, has signed up with her family to complete a 24 hour run challenge on the 26th-27th of June 2021 and will be using this event to continue fundraising for Outreach Youth.

RoC24 is a running event that challenges participants (along or in relay teams of to finish as many laps of a 5k mixed terrain course at Woolverstone Hall as possible over a 24 hour period, beginning at 12 p.m. on Saturday and finishing at 12 p.m. on Sunday..

Entrants who achieve the most distance for each category (solo, pairs and teams of between 3 and 8) will be awarded 1st, 2nd and 3rd podium trophies for their efforts.

The event’s charitable partner is St Elizabeth’s Hospice, a local hospice that provides vital care services to thousands of people in East Suffolk, Norfolk and Waveney each year.

Our team regularly supports St Elizabeth’s Hospice including fundraising for the organisation over the 2020 Christmas period as part of the HospICE Bucket Challenge.
