500 miles for £500 - Woodward Markwell staff sign up to fundraising challenge in memory of Jen Baker

Woodward Markwell staff are fundraising for East Anglian Air Ambulance

500 miles for £500 - Woodward Markwell staff will be clocking up the miles running, cycling or walking throughout January to raise money for this amazing charity, in memory of Jen Baker.

As you may be aware in October we very sadly lost our Operations Manager Jen Baker in a horrific car accident. Jen was just 32 years old and had her whole life in front of her. We have all been devastated and wanted to find something positive to focus on in the new year whilst fundraising for an amazing charity that is close to the heart of Jen’s family. The East Anglian Air Ambulance attended the scene and did their very best to help Jen. We have decided to do this challenge for Jen and to fundraise for the Air Ambulance as they doing amazing work within in our community and are there when we need them.

We would be very grateful for any donation that you would be willing to give. Thank you.

Each staff member taking part have set up their own Just Giving page and are hoping to raise as much money as possible for our local air ambulance service. If you would like to donate to any of our staff, the details of their challenge and their fundraising pages are detailed below.
