Pack­etts to cover the miles for 100 first aiders

Yorkshire Post - Business - - BUSINESS / NEWS -

Pack­etts, the Brad­ford-based in­sur­ance bro­kers, aims to raise £10,000 for the St John Am­bu­lance, as the firm pre­pares for its cen­te­nary in 2020. If the staff suc­ceed in rais­ing this to­tal, it would cover the cost of train­ing 100 ad­vanced St John first aiders.

To reach this tar­get, staff at Pack­etts will be tak­ing part in a host of ac­tiv­i­ties.

Over the next two years the com­pany will stage a

“cen­tury chal­lenge” dur­ing which all Pack­etts’ staff are be­ing chal­lenged to cover 100 miles.

This can be done in­cre­men­tally by run­ning, cy­cling, swim­ming, walk­ing or a mix­ture of all four.

Michelle Ker­ri­gan, na­tional part­ner­ships man­ager at St John Am­bu­lance, added: “St John Am­bu­lance are de­lighted to be work­ing in part­ner­ship with Pack­etts in­sur­ance bro­kers. We are re­ally look­ing for­ward to sup­port­ing all of their fundrais­ing ef­forts.”
