House Building Staff Step Out For Children's Charity During Company Fun Day
01 Sep 2015

Staff from Linden Homes Midlands enlisted the help of friends and family to join them for a company challenge with a difference, to raise vital funds for children’s charity STEPS.

Employees from the company’s head office in Peterborough as well as members of the sales and production teams from around Linden Homes’ regional developments, joined forced to collectively cover 2015 miles in a single day.

The idea was to do this in as many different ways as possible, including walking, running, cycling, hopping, dancing and even skipping the 24 miles around Rutland Water.

As well as boosting funds for Steps Centre - a charity which provides specialist nursery services and support to children with motor disorders and their families - it was a chance for the Linden Homes team to enjoy a day out with family and friends; tucking into a BBQ lunch and entertaining younger members in a large marquee with bouncy castles, face painter and other attractions.

And for those who still had some energy left, there was the opportunity for a game of rounders and five-a-side football in the afternoon.

Linden Homes Midlands’ managing director Mike Coker said: “It was an absolutely fantastic day, and great to see so many members of the team enjoying the company of each other and their friends and family and letting their hair down and above all, having fun.”

“Our huge thanks to everyone who has sponsored a member of staff and we hope to have raised a huge amount for the STEPS charity.”
