We are so proud to support our East supervising social worker Rhian Coe, who is running the London Marathon on Sunday 22nd April. She is raising money for a fantastic local charity in Braintree, the CSS Charitable Trust, and has already raised 79% of her fundraising target.
In Rhian’s own words:
“I am running it for a great local charity, the CSS Charitable Trust in Braintree that provides financial support to worthy causes in the Braintree area. They support individuals, families, groups and small charities. There are many chairties for bigger things but this is a charity for the smaller things in the Braintree area. For example, they provided a new mobility scooter to a man that was a victim of mobility scooter theft, giving him back his freedom to get out and about. They helped a family with children with mobility problems by landscaping their garden so they could access the outside with more ease in their wheelchairs.
Over this past year they have helped support children and families who have needed to fundraise themselves towards vital health treatment, services and much needed equipment. Another example of their financial support is to local small charities such as the Braintree Area Food Bank and the Braintree District Mencap Society.”
