Interdirect is excited to announce it will be taking part in #GivingTuesday! On Tuesday 2nd December, our MD Nicholas Mann will be taking on the Interdirect Endurance Mann Challenge (see what we did there?!) as he aims to take part in as many sports as possible in just 8 hours to raise money for the Milton Keynes Community Foundation as part of their #GivingTuesday Challenge Cup.
Nick will be swimming, indoor sky diving and rock climbing his way through the day, as well as some more surprise extreme sports activities, to raise as much money as possible between 8am and 5pm with the ID team joining in for different legs of the challenge.
All monies raised on the day will go to the Milton Keynes Community Foundation’s Surviving Winter campaign which supports elderly and vulnerable people during the winter months, such as the Food Bank and the Winter Night Shelter. Just £50 enables MK Food Bank to provide supplies to feed a family for a week, and the Foundation's aim is to raise £40k by the end of March to suppor the most vulnerable people in Milton Keynes to heat their homes, and to receive emergency food and shelter.
The company that raises the most money will be crowned the most generous workplace in Milton Keynes at a fundraiser event at Missoula in The Hub, Milton Keynes.
“I’m excited, if a little apprehensive, to be taking on the ID Endurance Mann Challenge”, says Nick.
“Interdirect has supported the Milton Keynes Community Foundation for a number of years and we’re now in the process of setting up a named fund to continue our support in 2015 and many years to come.”
“I can’t encourage you enough to give anything you can on #GivingTuesday and help us raise awareness and funds for this fantastic cause.”
“I’d also like to thank David Lloyd Leisure, AirKix and Ellis Brigham for donating their facilities in support of the Milton Keynes Community Foundation.”
