10 miles for 10 years - sponsored walk

To celebrate Equiniti's 10 year anniversary the Equiniti Riskfactor team organised a 10 mile walk to raise money for Bliss, the charity for premature and sick babies.

On 20th September, the team at Equiniti Riskfactor celebrated Equiniti’s 10th birthday – the theme of our day was ‘10 miles for 10 years’, which involved a 10 mile sponsored walk for charity.

The team posed for a photo before setting off on our sponsored walk.  Despite a bit of drizzle and a slight hiccup with directions we all got into the stride and walked to Borde Hill Gardens where we celebrated the half way point with tea and cake.

Rested and refreshed we then did the second leg of the walk back to our office in Balcombe.  By then the sun had come out.  The actual walk took us between 3.40 mins and 4 hours, some walking the second leg faster than others!

Despite all being a bit weary, we finished the day off with a curry at a local Indian restaurant.

The icing on the cake for the day is that we have raised £830 for Bliss.  We are hoping some late donations might still come in. To sponsor and donate to Bliss please visit our Just Giving page.
