Every two years Billing Finance organises a trip abroad to raise money for local charities and to give our staff a challenge and something to look forward to.
Director Oliver Mackaness explained: "We decided to take part in the Iceland Midnight Sun Run on the longest day of the year as it caters for all fitness levels; a 5km, 10km and half marathon event. 54 took part in the run and we had an amazing time. I really wanted to encourage my staff to do some exercise and raise money for charity at the same time. The three main areas of the business each chose a local charity to support. Ben Clark, who works in our compliance department, chose Cynthia Spencer as he took part in the Cycle for Cynthia ride last year and learnt a lot about the important work they do. We are pleased to have been able to donate £4,000 to the Hospice from the total £12,000 that was raised during challenge and shared with two other local charities"
