Investment firm RWinvest start 600km challenge for Liverpool’s Inclusive Hub
RWinvest, the national property investment company which has its headquarters in Liverpool, will kick start a 600km running and cycling challenge today (Friday 29 January) to raise money for the Inclusive Hub.
The Kirkdale-based charity was launched in 2016 to support autistic children with sports and educational initiatives. It has since expanded its services to help people all over the city facing wide ranging medical issues as well as social and economic challenges.
The partnership between RWinvest and the Inclusive Hub started after Liam Starkey, a former employee at the investment firm, left to work full time for the charitable organisation.
Today, a total of 40 RWinvest employees are being sponsored to take to the road (and treadmill and exercise bikes) over 10 days to reach 600km in a bid to raise £5,000 for the charity.
Julian Ramsden, director at RWinvest, said:
“The Inclusive Hub has recently expanded services to meet the needs of people struggling right now, particularly those who are facing mental health challenges.
We know from speaking to Liam Starkey that this service provides a lifeline to many. We started our charity partnership with the Inclusive Hub last year but it needs our support now more than ever and that’s why we’ve decided to launch this additional fundraising initiative.
Most of the team is involved in a collective ambition to hit 600km in 10 days. I’m a keen runner so will be completing 100km in this time and I am raring to go.”
Fundraising will help to purchase much-needed sports equipment for the Inclusive Hub and will help keep the organisation running throughout the pandemic and beyond.
RWinvest have set up a JustGiving page for anyone wishing to donate on the website here.
Based in Liverpool, RWinvest specialises in buy-to-let investments on residential developments. The company has offices in London and Manchester and has delivered more than £1bn into the UK investment market since launching in 2004.
