Businesses Run for Foodbank

Worcestershire based accountancy firm, Ballards LLP, has collaborated with Four Squared Recruitment to embark on a series of fundraising initiatives in support of their chosen charity of the year, the Worcester Foodbank. The joint efforts of the teams from Ballards LLP and Four Squared Recruitment have resulted in already raising over £1,000 thus far through various events held throughout the year.

One of the standout events in their fundraising campaign was the recent Worcester half marathon, which took place on Sunday, 21 May. Members from both Ballards LLP and Four Squared Recruitment embraced the sunny conditions and donned their running shoes to conquer the challenging 13-mile course.

Reflecting on the experience, Matthew Clarke, Marketing Manager at Ballards LLP said:

“I was keen to be involved in the fundraising but wanted to make sure it was a challenge and after 13 miles my legs would tell you it was. I am glad we were able to support such a great cause, and, in a way, that was the real motivation that spurred me on mile after mile.”

Emma Richardson, Managing Director at Four Squared Recruitment, who also sits on the company’s charity committee said:

“Well done to all involved, we are pleased that we were able to team up with Ballards and raise money for a more than worthy cause.”

HR Director at Ballards LLP, Sarah Stevens commented, “The continued efforts from the teams at Ballards LLP and Four Squared Recruitment have not only made a significant impact on the Worcester Foodbank but have also served as a testament to both business’ commitment to corporate social responsibility. By coming together to support the local community, these organisations have exemplified the power of collective action in creating positive change.”
