Posted in: News
SecureCloud+ have successfully fundraised over £5000 for Combat Stress by taking on a 75-mile cycle challenge to commemorate the 75th anniversary of VJ Day which took place on Saturday 15th August.
Staff members of SecureCloud+ cycled throughout Reading and Staffordshire, with each member taking on a particular cycle challenge to raise money on the charity’s Just Giving Page. This event was part of SecureCloud+’s ongoing support for Combat Stress-the UK’s leading veterans’ mental health charity.
Peter Williamson, CEO of SecureCloud+ said: ‘’As an Armed Forces friendly organisation, we are in awe of the work Combat Stress does for former servicemen and women with mental health problems. Moving forward, we will continue to support the charity as much as we can as an organisation. Our organisation employs veterans and members of the armed forces community, which is why this charity has a special connection with SecureCloud+’’
For the successful completion of the Ride to Victory, Maggie Bennion, Senior Corporate Fundraising Officer, from Combat Stress awarded SecureCloud+ with a hero’s Poppy and remembrance penny. She said: ‘’Due to Covid-19, and various other challenges, this has been a difficult year for us financially. But we have been determined to keep our fundraising going, and were delighted to see our efforts matched by incredibly selfless supporters like SecureCloud+. The money they raised will help us to continue to be there for those veterans in need.’’
SecureCloud+ presented a £5388 cheque to celebrate this achievement in their Reading office.
