Gatwick Airport and VEGA Europe Raise Donations for Dame Vera Lynn Children's Charity

A beautiful sunrise met the VEGA team as they gathered outside the stunning surroundings of Arundel Castle for the A2B Walk across the South Downs Way, raising money for Dame Vera Lynn Children’s Charity - just a little jaunt of either 12km or 35km!

 

VEGA Europe were joined this year by Lee Henderson from Gatwick Airport and his partner, Lizzi Mourton. 

 

Lee said, “When Tim asked me if I would be interested in joining him for the walk and explained the amazing work Dame Vera Lynn Children’s Charity do, I jumped at the chance.” He continued “It was an amazing day and I’ll be looking to get more people involved next year!”

 

The Charity who support children under 5 with Cerebral Palsy and other motor learning difficulties, have recently moved to a new location in Cuckfield, Sussex, and have been introducing some fantastic new equipment for their sensory room, as well as an adjustable interactive whiteboard which VEGA installed.  Tim Dobson, Sales & Commercial Director from VEGA said “Since completing the walk last year, we have been working closely with the Charity and it’s been fantastic to watch the development of their rooms for the children.”

 

Denise Green, Marketing Manager from VEGA, added “It was my first time doing anything like this.  There was a real buzz as we all lined up to start the walk, with participants of all ages! A brilliant day, even with the challenging hills, with fabulous scenery and views which are right on our doorstep.  A humbling experience, and a great achievement from everybody involved.”

 

The group set off at 7.45am from the beautiful setting of Arundel Castle with over 60 people of all ages.

 

Most people made it to the end before the skies opened, and TeamVEGA expect to have raised over £1,000 by the time donations are collected.
