Doncaster employee ends year on charity high
20 Nov 2019
One of the team at Boxes and Packaging (Doncaster) has been the latest employee across the group to tackle a charity challenge and draws the 2019 efforts of all Boxes and Packaging sites to a close.
Kevin Williams, an estimator who has worked for the company for 6 years, joined other runners to take part in the Wooler Trail Marathon which takes place in the stunning Cheviot Hills, and saw him tackle 6,000 feet of off road climbing, almost a fifth of Mount Everest!
“This was the hardest thing I have ever done but the feel of achievement at the end was indescribable,” said Kevin. “I was determined to complete the challenge, despite the inclement weather which saw the course shortened by a little over a mile, and make all those people that had generously donated proud.”
Creative Recovery in Barnsley, South Yorkshire was Kevin’s chosen charity and is a people-led charity that uses creativity to bring about social change, boost well-being and support recovery in the local community.
“Kevin has certainly ended the year for us with an amazing personal challenge and shows that anything is possible if you put your mind to it,” said Stuart Clarke Managing Director Boxes and Packaging (Doncaster). “We are very proud of what he has achieved and I shall be encouraging more people at Doncaster to get involved in our company Charity Challenge in 2020.”
To date Kevin has raised over £600 but donations can still be given by visiting https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/kevin-williams46 The final sum will be matched by the parent company through its Charity Matching Scheme.
