The office atmosphere has been in very high spirits recently after our ‘Love is in the Air’ charity auction and our recent charity campaign for the Australia bushfires.
Today, we celebrated by having a pancake station in our kitchen. A delicious range of pancakes, waffles and a selection of toppings were given out to our Give A Grad A Go office to start of the day sweetly!
Our Community and Partnerships Executive, Katie Clough organized the pancake station in aid of her London Marathon 2020 fundraising for the British Heart Foundation.
Katie explains why she’s chosen to fundraise for the British Heart Foundation:
“Many people know that the British Heart Foundation raise money which goes towards research into helping people living with heart and circulatory diseases. But not many people know that twice as many people are living with Heart and Circulatory diseases than with cancer and Alzheimer’s disease combined!
Sadly, Heart and Circulatory diseases cause more than a quarter (27% per cent) of all deaths in the UK, however since the British Heart Foundation was established the annual number of deaths from heart and circulatory diseases in the UK has fallen by around a half!”
