Styles&Wood Group colleagues take on the Shine Night Walk

Posted on

   

Colleagues from integrated property services and project delivery specialist, Styles&Wood Group, have completed a 26.2 mile challenge in aid of Cancer Research UK.

On Saturday 23rd September, 9 employees from across the Styles&Wood Group took part in the London Shine Walk, an overnight marathon long walk through the heart of London, raising over £4,000 to support life-saving research.

Starting from Southwark Park, they joined 40,000 people in illuminating the streets and completed the course in just over 10 hours. Making up the team was 7 members of our Nottingham design team along with 2 colleagues from GDM Partnership.

Andrew Senior, said

“It was a long night, but I feel very proud to have completed the walk. We would like to thank everyone for their support, we’re overwhelmed by the total we’ve raised between us all to support a very worthy cause.”

Catherine Marson said:

“I am really proud of the team for challenging themselves and each other to complete the walking marathon.  Everyone has had their lives touched by cancer in some way, this event was a great way of contributing to the ongoing fight against this cruel disease.  For our team to be part of a 4 million pound fund raising event is really something to be proud of.  Give us a few days and we’ll start thinking of the next challenge!”

Lauren Watts said:

“The reason for doing this walk was really brought home seeing the emotions on everyone’s faces as they crossed the line.

I was truly humbled watching those who had lost close family members recently and broke down crossing the line, those currently battling the disease and walking despite the toll on their bodies, to those who were doing it for friends and went out of their way to help and motivate everyone they could.

It was truly an unforgettable and inspiring night and I am incredibly proud of the part our team have played in the fight to beat cancer.”
