NC Associates fundraising

The team at NC Associates are delighted to announce they’ll be supporting the Barrie Wells Trust and their Box4Kids initiative whilst undertaking the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge on 5th October.

Barrie Wells Trust was founded in 2009 by entrepreneur and philanthropist Barrie Wells. The Box4Kids initiative is run by the Trust and invites seriously ill children from hospitals to enjoy a sporting or entertainment event in the luxury of an executive box. Not only do these boxes provide VIP treatment for the children, but they’re also a safe environment for children with severe medical needs. To date, the initiative has invited nearly 9,000 children and their families to enjoy a Box4Kids event, and the Trust works with over 100 hospitals and hospices across the UK who nominate deserving children to attend Box4Kids events.

A team from NC Associates have elected to undertake the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge on 5th October and fundraise (through a JustGiving page) in support of the Box4Kids initiative. All donations raised will go directly to the Box4Kids initiative. NC Associates’ Managing Director, Wayne Caunce commented:

We’re delighted to be able to support this very worthwhile initiative with the Barrie Wells Trust. The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge will be tough, but it’s all for a good cause and I’m sure the team will do us proud!
