Raising money for local Brentwood charity – SNAP!

In Company News By ClearView Communications, 24th April 2017

This year, ClearView will be entering a team in to Birkett’s Race 4 Business with the aim of raising £1000 for local charity, Brentwood, Essex.

On the 15th of June 2017, thousands of runners will arrive in Chelmsford Town Centre (in Essex) to commence the 3.5 mile run. This fundraising event is supporting local Brentwood charity – SNAP!

What is SNAP and what do they do?

SNAP stands for “Special Needs and Parents” and is a wonderful charity which helps make life easier for families in Essex who have children and young people, with any special need or disability. The charity is run from a dedicated centre in the former Duchess of Kent building in Pastoral Way, Warley.

From here they provide a unique service to Essex families where people can benefit from, training, advice, counseling and multi-sensory activities. Over all, the charity has helped over 3,500 families with over 250 new families seeking support from the charity every year.

Christina Stubbs, SNAP Manager, has said: “Proceeds raised from Birketts’ Race4Business will benefit the SNAP community, in particular through the funding of our specialist Parent Training Talks and Individual Family Sessions, both of which are vital parts of our ongoing drive to ‘Strengthen Families.”

This year we are aiming to raise over £1000 for SNAP with a team of over 25 runners!

We love taking part in Race 4 Business as it allows us to join with local businesses and make a positive difference to our local community. It also gives us a great team-building opportunity outside of work and of course, helps us work off all those Easter Eggs.
