Matched Giving - Well done to Bryan Roberts

19 April 2024

We are proud to support our colleagues fundraising efforts with our Matched Giving initiative - a way of boosting the money you have fundraised.

Congratulations to Bryan Roberts who recently completed The Liverpool Half Marathon 2024, raising money for the amazing Claire House Children's Hospice. Bryan has raised an amazing £730 including a £250 Matched Giving fundraising boost from Carpenters Group.

Here is what Bryan had to say:

"I’d always fancied having a go at a half marathon and was made aware just after Christmas of the Liverpool Half Marathon coming up in March, so I decided to give it a go. The run itself was brilliant, it was harder than I thought it was going to be but the atmosphere and the amount of runners (9000!) made it really enjoyable. My training only took me up to 10 miles and with the run being just over 13 in total, the last 3 miles were a killer!...but I would definitely recommend it.

I picked Claire House to raise money for as I think the work they do is incredible and just so important. I’m a father myself so it really hits home and I think we’re very lucky to have organisations like Claire House who can help children and their families in such challenging times."

A huge well done to Bryan and thank you for sharing your story.
