Levy UK raises over £50,000 for ParalympicsGB

The sports and entertainment hospitality arm of Compass Group UK & Ireland has surpassed its £50,000 fundraising target for charity partner, ParalympicsGB, with the total as of 30 May standing at £52,384.

This comes after almost 250 Levy UK employees took part in a five-week, 43-leg, 1,000-mile relay visiting 50 Levy-catered partner venues spanning Scotland, England and Wales. Collectively, the various Levy teams travelled a massive 6,351 miles – 3,185 miles covered by bike, 139 miles running, and 3,027 miles completed walking!

Levy embarked on this ambitious journey to support its long-term official charity partner, ParalympicsGB, aiming to raise vital funds and awareness, supporting their mission to provide opportunities for disabled athletes to excel in their chosen sports.

Jane Byrd, Levy lead in Wales and Levy ParalympicsGB charity lead said: “We are thrilled and extremely proud to have completed this unbelievable journey and to have surpassed our £50,000 fundraising target. From the starting line to the finish, our Levy teams demonstrated extraordinary commitment, passion, and teamwork, embodying the spirit of unity and solidarity that defines both Levy UK and ParalympicsGB.”

David Clarke OBE, ParalympicsGB CEO commented: “On behalf of ParalympicsGB, we thank the whole Levy UK team for raising more than an incredible £50,000, plus £10,000 of gift aid, to support our work. To raise such an amount of money and cover such a distance in a really short period of time is an amazing achievement and has engaged so many people.

“We are absolutely determined to inspire a better world for disabled people through sport and the incredible efforts of Levy and the money raised through the 1,000-mile relay will help us realise this goal.”
