This year Multipix have chosen Canine Partners as our charity to support. We will do this by holding many fundraising activities throughout the year, with an aim to raise as much money as we can for Canine Partners.
What do Canine Partners do?
Canine Partners is a charity that transforms the lives of people with physical disabilities by partnering them with assistance dogs. Their amazing dogs bring a greater independence and quality of life to their partners, offering security, companionship, and practical help with everyday household tasks. These life-changing dogs also provide psychological and social benefits including increased independence, confidence, social interaction and self-esteem.
Canine Partners receive no government funding and rely solely on donations from the public and legacies to help them continue their life-transforming work.
So far we have organised a Grand National ‘sweepstake’ and a car boot sale. These brought in a total of £130! We have been so impressed with everyone’s efforts and are so grateful for everyone in the office for taking part.
On 14th July, Thomas will be taking part in the ‘Petersfield Ups and Downs’ cycle event. This is a 20 mile off road bike ride. Rocks, hills, gravel, water, and maybe mud. And probably some nettles; PUAD’s Off Road Course is a 20 (actually it’s nearer 21!) mile circuit with approximately 7 miles on the road and rest taking in the challenging bridleways and byways of the beautiful South Downs National Park.
On 10th August, Lynne, Julie and James will be taking part in the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge. This route is 24 miles (38.6km), and includes 1585m (5200ft) of ascent.
The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge takes on the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, usually in this order, and in under 12 hours. These peaks form part of the Pennine range, and encircle the head of the valley of the River Ribble, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
