Springboard launches fundraising challenge to celebrate 30th anniversary

Written by: Edward Waddell
Hospitality charity Springboard has launched a £30,000 fundraising challenge to raise money for people seeking employment as part of their 30th anniversary.

Run, walk, swim or cycle 30 miles in November to help raise £30,000 for the Springboard charity in the #303030 challenge. 

Ade Adepitan, GB Paralympic Gold medallist, said: “I’m a huge supporter of the work that Springboard do – helping people who are unemployed or have been made redundant to upskill and improve their job prospects. 

“It’s so prevalent right now! Whether you do a mile a day or finish your 30 miles in the first week, the sponsorship you generate will be going to a brilliant cause.”

The Springboard charity offers hospitality training, mentoring and CV workshops to help people overcome barriers to employment.  

Mark Foster, former world champion swimmer, added: “This challenge is great because, as well as supporting a brilliant charity, you can mix up your exercise throughout the month to achieve your 30 mile goal. 

“You don’t need to be an athlete- everybody can get involved, including kids cycling to school or just taking a morning walk everyday with a coffee!”

If you are interested in the campaign you can donate £3 towards the £30,000 target by texting THIRTYMILES to 70085 from your mobile phone (Texts cost £3 plus one standard rate message).
