CharityCommunityRecovery + Recycling12 May 20220Don’t Look Down! – Rising to the Challenge with Virgin Media O2

It feels like a long time since we stepped outdoors to embark on a new fund-raising challenge. Earlier this week, we teamed up with our partners from the Virgin Media O2 Supply Chain team to raise money for charities as part of their annual Give Back Day initiative, supporting Cancer Research UK and local community projects.

On a sunny day, set in the beautiful Yorkshire Moors, three teams participated throughout the day. The first team bravely descend 70ft down the iconic Cow and Calf rocks on Ilkley Moor, the second team collected donations and volunteered their time to support the Bradford North Foodbank, whilst the third team rolled up their sleeves to tackle gardening jobs with the Friends of Ilkley Riverside Parks. All together the Give Back Day teams raised over £7,500 combined for the three causes and thoroughly enjoyed the adventure!
