Supporting Skip2BFit school workshop initiative at Houses of Parliament & sponsoring Ukraine charity concert on same day in London
We put our 'world of good' ethos into action last week by supporting the Skip2Bfit MP challenge at the Houses of Parliament to raise awareness on importance of an active lifestyle and healthy eating and followed on by sponsoring a fund-raising concert for the Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal in Aldgate.
Over 600 MPs were invited to take part in the 2 minute challenge to mark Skip2bfit's 20th anniversary
The aim of the event was to raise awareness of Skip2bfit and prove that anyone, regardless of age or ability can take part in skipping as a form of healthy exercise. By inviting MPs to come along the team aimed to make the Government more aware of how Skip2Bfit can motivate young people to start exercising and to explain how important the funding is to further this cause. MPs were awarded skipping kitbags, to give to a school in their constituency.
We were joined by Stephen Taylor of Winterwood Farms who also actively supports Skip2Bfit and we all enjoyed cheering on MP's and talking fresh berries afterwards.
Sponsoring Rock for Ukraine to raise funds for Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal
On the same day, we continued the support by sponsoring a charity gig organised by Gemserv to raise money for the Disasters Emergency Committee Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.
At the event, hosted at Slug & Lettuce in Aldgate, two amazing bands were showcased: The Red Sticks and Go with the Flo.
We donated £500 to fund the sound equipment and engineer for the concert, which helped make the night a real success - raising nearly £8,000 for the Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.
