Zoe, a dedicated member of the Trustee Fire & Security team, recently undertook an incredible challenge to support the Samaritans charity. Accompanied by her faithful companion, Fawkes, she walked an inspiring 50 miles to raise funds for mental health awareness and suicide prevention.
Zoe says “In such uncertain times for many people, the Samaritans are needed now more than ever. We wanted to support this fantastic charity and the work they do all year round, by walking 50 miles in November to raise funds to support the tireless work they do to save lives. We are so proud to announce we have completed the 50 miles challenge and have been able to raise an amazing donation amount!”
Zoe’s determination and the generosity of supporters within and beyond TFS helped her surpass her fundraising goal. This heartwarming initiative not only showcased the company’s commitment to social responsibility but also highlighted the impact of individual efforts. Zoe & Fawkes have proven that small steps, or in this case, 50 miles, can lead to significant positive change for a vital cause!
“Every 10 seconds, Samaritans responds to a call for help. Day or night, for anyone who’s struggling to cope, who needs someone to listen without judgement or pressure. Samaritans is not only for the moment of crisis, but they are also taking action to prevent the crisis. They listen and support people and communities in times of need.
Every £5.00 donation we have raised helps the Samaritans answer a life saving call from someone in need.”
