Network Marketing was proud to lend our support to Mark Strafford (Marketing Assistant) at Chapter Eight. Mark has set out to raise money to enable him to partake in a charity climb of Mount Kilimanjaro. The climb will be taking place at the end of August, all in aid of Childreach International (www.childreach.org.uk), a charity that specialises in children’s projects in parts of Asia and Africa. Mark and his friends certainly came up with a unique way of raising the money.
Mark had the unenviable task of picking up 72 dozen Krispy Kreme doughnuts from Manchester, and delivering them to local businesses in Leeds. By the time that Mark had arrived at our offices, he had managed to raise £1900 of the £2300 needed to enable him to go on the climb. All of the Network Marketing office was informed last night that we would be receiving 24 Krispy Kreme doughnuts, the money kindly being donated by our director, Jonathan Hirst. The excitement today was intense with the anticipation of when they would arrive. Some of the office had even forgone food to make space for them. After tasting the doughnuts, two of our staff decided that they would like to make an extra contribution, so purchased a dozen more doughnuts each. Charity has never tasted so good. Good luck to Mark on his epic adventure, from everyone at Network Marketing. Dale Taylor
