Local business Velopost is sponsoring Ted’s Team in the 2016 Bath Half as supporters of The Forever Friends Appeal. Known in Bath for their eco-friendly postal delivery service delivering mail by bicycle, Velopost, part of the CFH Docmail Ltd are once again going the extra mile for their local community. As well as supporting all the Forever Friends Bath Half runners through their sponsorship CFH staff will also be taking on the 13.1 mile challenge and running as part of Ted’s Team. Velopost provides an efficient, secure, and environmentally friendly way to save money on sending local letters.
Victoria Coates, Client Services Manager at CFH Docmail Ltd comments:
We are so proud to be working with Ted’s Team again this year with our team of runners in the Bath Half Marathon. As a local business to the Royal United Hospital, and an employer of over 350 people at our sites in Bath and Radstock, the work the charity does is essential for our community. Cancer affects so many people and has also sadly affected several of our staff and their families at CFH, making it even more reason for us to support this fantastic organisation.”
The Bath Half is a fantastic personal challenge whilst raising funds for a cause close to your heart. The Forever Friends Appeal is encouraging people to join Velopost and sign up to run in Ted’s Team. You can run as a group from work by creating a Corporate Team competing in Big Ted’s Corporate Challenge. Silver Bond places for The Forever Friends Appeal are also available now and can be purchased for just a £35 initial donation, with a pledge to raise a further minimum sponsorship of £175 for The Forever Friends Appeal.
Corporate Officer for the Appeal, Louisa Smyllie, comments: “We are thrilled that Velopost and CFH Docmail Ltd have chosen to support Ted’s Team again in 2016, and we hope that others will be inspired to get involved to run the Bath Half next year for the hospital. It is the perfect opportunity to show your support for a friend, family member or loved one who has been looked after at the RUH.”
The Forever Friends Appeal is also encouraging people who have already secured their own general public place in the event to raise funds for the RUH Cancer Care Campaign.
