We are proud to support our chosen charity – the Motor Neurone Disease Association. The charity supports those affected by Motor Neurone Disease, as well as funding research into fighting the disease. Throughout the year NX Group will be continuing to support the charity, with a variety of fundraising activities, raising brand awareness and much more. This charity is close to our hearts and we want to give something back.
On 2nd September 2017, Russell Thompson, Simon Duffield and David Pritchet will be grabbing their bikes and cycling 100 miles in aid of Motor Neurone Disease Association. The 100-mile route will start in Northampton and finish in London – plus, to make it more challenging the team have chosen to do this off road and none of the team have completed more than 20 miles in one go before!
Preparation includes regular bike rides in the evenings, and the team are hoping for a sunny day in September for their ride. They are busy fundraising and promoting the event and cause here in the NX office and to family and friends. We will be following their challenge and posting updates on our social media channels.
If you would like to support the team, please visit our Just Giving page here.
