@SandsUK – Our chosen Charity 2018 – 19

There are many Charities in the UK all doing great work, but normally it isn’t until you have a personal reason to need the resources of one of them, do you really understand their full benefit.

SANDS WLW Chosen Charity

One of our team and a member of the West family sadly had need of the resources of SANDS – The Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Charity this year. This wonderful charity assisted immediately in the hospital by sponsoring a private family room that could be used while in the Royal Surrey County Hospital – Guildford. It continues to support the family through the trauma of losing a child and will well into the future.

Chris West has decided that he would like to give something back to the SANDS Charity by legging it – literally! He has already run the Petersfield 10K earlier this July. He is running the Great South Run a 10 mile run in October 2018, this is held in Southsea. He is running the Surrey Half Marathon in March 2019, this is located in Woking. Finally, he will be running the London Marathon in April 2019 (providing he gets his place – alternatively he will run the Brighton Marathon in April).

Chris has set an ambitious, but achievable target of £3500 to raise by the time he completes his final challenge of the London Marathon. He has made a flying start after the first run, but has a way to go. In truth he would like to smash and well exceed his target.

SANDS WLW Chosen Charity

There cannot be many of us who do not know someone who has lost a child. If you are able to support Chris in his challenge, however small the donation, each penny counts. The directors of W L West & Sons Ltd have made SANDS the chosen charity for 2018 -19. Click on either of the logos to go to the giving page.

On behalf of Chris, the Directors of W L West & Sons Ltd would like to thank you for any support you are able to give.
