Charity Work – The Disasters Emergency Committee

I have attended the Maxi Development Course 2022, as part of this we had to raise money for charity. I chose to raise money for The Disasters Emergency Committee, this was related to the Ukrainian War/Disaster.

I was originally paired with a fellow colleague of mine from my depot, however due to personal issues he left the business, and I became a one man team. Prior to going it on my own we had decided to complete the Inflatable 5K in Stratford upon Avon, I chose to stick with this idea. This was something that I felt was going to be fun, however still challenging for an unfit and untrained person like myself. This involves a course of inflatable obstacles and grass area between which is 2.5K long – I, alongside two friends completed two laps of this course to complete 5K. I completed this in 1hr 22mins, which I was quite proud of and was happy with my end result 😊.


The charity I chose was Disasters Emergency Committee. This choice was based on the issues that had just started in Ukraine. I felt that due to the situation then and still currently, I wanted to support the innocent people that had fell victim to war by no choice of their own. At the time one of the main causes, they were supporting (and they still are) is assisting the Ukrainian population by way of medical provisions, food, water,on land assistance and help by providing shelter for people which have been forced to leave their homes.




I have hit my original target of £400 on my GoFundMe Page and am now working towards my new, revised goal of £1000. Thank you to all that have donated so far, any questions please feel free to email me on the below.
