Another Stride of Sponsorship
We are proud to have contributed to the £1,805 that Gail Smith from the Black Country raised in the Birmingham Run recently.
We have been sponsoring Gail in her quest to raise money for deserving charities for around five years now, and this year Repose was more than happy to support her chosen charity Edward's Trust.
Edward's Trust provides a wide range of support services to bereaved families and children.
Gail wrote to us and said: "Wanted to say a very big thank for your support with the above. Without the generous donation from people like you we couldn't have reached our target which stands at the moment at £1,805. You've always supported my efforts over the years and I've been so grateful for that.”
Gail was joined by her sidekick Val, but there was a special addition to the team this year who goes by the name of Whisper The Listening Bear. He is a new member of the counselling team at Edward's Trust and aids them in their work with children who have suffered bereavement. Gail told us of how touched she was when she visited the Trust before her race and that it really put into perspective what the children have to go through. Whisper helps children who are affected by bereavement, trauma, abuse, and adoption.
