National Friendly raises £8,000 to support Cystic Fibrosis Trust in Bristol area
Last month, Neil Thompson, Market and Product Intelligence Manager at National Friendly, ran the Bristol half marathon to bring the total funds raised for the year to £8,000. The charity was proposed by Head of Sales and Marketing at National Friendly, Wayne Carter, whose own brother and sister died from Cystic Fibrosis.
Wayne said, "I am incredibly proud of what we as a Society have achieved through our fundraising efforts, and can't thank everybody enough for all they have done for a cause that strikes so close to home for me. Neil has been a key player in our fundraising activities, with this being his second major charitable accomplishment this year, and that has been a real inspiration to the rest of the team. The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is the only UK wide charity fighting to help those living with this terrible disease, and I am honoured to say that National Friendly has been a part of the movement to make that a reality."
Earlier this year, Neil completed a 150 mile walk from Albury, Surrey, where the Society was founded, to Bristol. Neil's personal fundraising page can be reached at: https://www.justgiving.com/
