Team cHRysos Walk 'Around Great Britain' in Fundraising Challenge

Team cHRysos Walk 'Around Great Britain' in Fundraising Challenge

The team here at cHRysos HR are aiming to raise money for three worthy charities, while getting some time away from their laptops, by walking and cycling the virtual distance of the England Coast Path - a huge 4,500km!

In uncertain times like these, the cHRysos HR team wanted to take part in this challenge to stay active, keep spirits high and raise money for three very worthy causes. All of the funds will be going to three chosen charities; Mind, the mental health charity working across England & Wales, Samaritans, providing a safe place for anyone struggling to cope and SafeLives, a UK charity dedicated to ending domestic abuse, for good. 

     

Each week, the staff members taking part will be walking or cycling across different areas of the beautiful English coastline and although their final goal will be a team effort, they have also added a bit of friendly competition into the mix. The team have divided themselves into six small groups who will all be striving to travel the furthest distance every week.

The latest team update shows how far each time has walked so far:
