Anglia office in fundraising drive for chosen charity

03 October 2014

Persimmon Homes Anglia hopes to raise thousands of pounds for its chosen charity by taking part in a testing charity challenge this weekend.

The challenge will see staff endure a triathlon covering 60km (36 miles) to help raise funds for The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

Andrew Fuller, managing director of Persimmon Anglia, said: “We raised more than £13,000 last year for the East Coast Hospice and my hope is that we can again this year raise a great deal for our nominated charity.”

The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit includes nine intensive care cots, six high dependency cots and 14 special care cots and for parents there is a sitting room as well as five bedrooms attached to the unit.

Andrew continued: “A sick baby is every parent’s worst nightmare, but this specialist unit offers not only great medical care, but also fantastic support for parents and families.”

The charity challenge, on September 28, kicks off at Andersons Meadow, Norwich, where participants will start their triathlon by cycling nearly 24 miles off-road.

They will then make their way to Aylsham via Marriott’s Way, ready for the next stage which involves a cross-country run of around six miles through Bure Valley Path to Coltishall Common for the final stage where teams of three will paddle around six miles to the finish line. 

Our Anglia office is raising money for the charity challenge through a JustGiving webpage.
