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!
