Making a difference

As part of the Heaford 40th anniversary celebrations, we are delighted to support our colleagues who are fundraising for charities that have particular significance to them. #givingback #TeamHeaford

This time, we would like to recognize Ragan White, our Purchasing and Production Coordinator, who has been actively fundraising for Brain Tumour Research. Ragan’s motivation stems from the heartbreaking loss of her mother in November 2018, just four weeks after being diagnosed with a grade 4 brain tumour. In May, Ragan successfully completed the challenge of by running the equivalent of a marathon of 26.2 miles in May, with the support of her dear friend, Linzi, Ragan completed this challenge in the first few weeks of May. Well done, Ragan!

Your mother would be immensely proud of you. To show our support, we have made a donation of £500 towards your cause.

In addition, this month we had the privilege of witnessing Rafael, son of Nick Vindel, our International Sales Manager at Heaford, participate in a 3km run for the Tracy Vindel Fund for The Brain Tumour Charity. Rafael’s mother, Tracy Vindel, tragically lost her battle with a brain tumour at the age of 43 in 2017. We applaud Rafael for his efforts, and we know his mother would be incredibly proud of him.  We’ve made a donation of £500 towards your cause too.

It is crucial to acknowledge that brain tumours claim more lives of individuals under the age of 40, both children and adults, than any other form of cancer. Shockingly, only 1% of the national expenditure on cancer research is allocated to this devastating disease. Through our collective fundraising activities, we hope to make a tangible difference and contribute to the cause.

Thank you to Ragan, Rafael, and all those who have supported their fundraising initiatives. Your dedication and commitment to raising awareness and funds for brain tumour research is truly commendable. Together, we can make an impact and bring hope to those affected by this challenging illness.
