A group of colleagues from the Greencore Salads sites in Spalding and Boston have embarked on a challenge to cover the equivalent of the journey from Land’s End to John O’Groats, a total of 1,083 by walking, running or cycling during the month of April.
In doing so, they hope to raise £1,083 – £1 for each mile covered for charity.
All money raised will go to mental health charity, Mind, to support the invaluable work they do to support people struggling with mental health issues.
Greencore Spalding produces coleslaw and other side of plate salads out of its site in Pinchbeck and Greencore Boston, previously known as Freshtime, has been producing ready to eat salads and prepared vegetables out of its site on Marsh Lane for many years. Both sites are expanding production and are taking on new people to meet the increasing consumer demand.
Commenting on the fundraising, Simon Titchner, General Manager at Greencore Spalding said:
“We know that many people struggle with mental health issues, particularly in the current environment. Our colleagues wanted to offer their support for an organisation that has supported so many people. Unfortunately current restrictions make it difficult for them to do the actual trip from Land’s End to John O’Groats, but being a resourceful group of people they have taken it upon themselves to set out the challenge and to meet their targets in their own way”.
Chris O’Byrne, General Manager at Greencore Boston said:
“I’m very proud of the team for their drive and determination to raise money for Mind. Although they won’t be going on the actual route from Land’s End to John O’Groats, I know they will push each other along to reach the target of 1,083 miles and I hope they get the sponsorship to enable them to support the work that Mind does.”
