Whittam Cox Architects are to continue their support for the local community having announced Roundabout as its official charity partner for 2018.
The practice, who have raised over £20,000 for local charities, will organise and take part in a series of fundraising activities to raise money for the Sheffield based organisation, which aims to support young people who are homeless or are at risk of homelessness, providing shelter and life skills through a range of comprehensive training programmes.
Their first fundraising event will see 23 employees, family and friends take part in the Dronfield 10k, a two-lap road race set in Dronfield Woodhouse near the practice’s HQ.
Jon Godwin, who heads up CSR initiatives at the practice, said, “We’re looking forward to taking part in this year's 10k; it’s always a brilliant physical challenge and a great way to get everyone involved in raising money for charity. We’re really pushing for as many donations as possible – I’m even taking to the track in an 8ft dinosaur outfit!”
“We are delighted to be partnering with Roundabout, the work they do for young people in the city is absolutely invaluable and we’re looking forward to supporting them throughout the year.”
Clare Collingworth, from Roundabout added, “We’re thrilled Whittam Cox have chosen to support our fundraising initiatives this year; the commitment from businesses like Whittam Cox goes a long way to helping us as a charity – we are extremely grateful.”
