Since October 2015, we've had a donation option running on our webpage to help encourage our Car Hire customers to leave a small donation when paying to help sponsor an employee of ours in the London Marathon.
Lee Hambly, 40 from the Easirent Liverpool Bootle Branch decided to run the 2016 London Marathon for his health and also the desire to raise money for a charity close to his heart.
"I knew the lads at work might donate a few quid but I never expected this kind of response. I'm overwhelmed to be honest but really, really glad I did it."
Our company has worked with the NSPCC for many years and loves a chance to fundraise every year for events such as London to Brighton Walk, the London Marathon and the Leeds 10k run to raise money for Age UK charity in March of 2015. Different members of staff take part each year, even the MD himself as a mission to give something back.
We're thrilled to announce the total amount raised just from this recent campaign was £3030 which has gone straight to helping the most vulnerable children.
"Finished the London marathon for the NSPCC in 3 hours 51 mins , your donations really helped in the last few miles when the legs get heavy. Even managed to do a cartwheel for the crowd with a mile to go so if you haven't made a small donation there's still time" - taken from Lee's justgiving page which you can find here.
