Making a difference, one step at a time.
Silver is stepping up
Silver Steps is an exciting challenge for the Silver team to come together virtually, keep ourselves fit in body and mind for the rest of the year, and raise some much-needed money for fantastic causes.
From now until the end of the year, every time our team goes for a walk, a run, or anything on foot, we’ll log our distances and add them to our grand total.
The target is to make it to Austin Texas, our Silver home in the US, which is 4,825 miles from London. Silver will be donating to our three chosen charities along the way, and we want your help, too.
Why are we doing this?
2020 has been a challenging year that no one was expecting. One sector that has suffered a lot through this time is charities, as the amount of support and number of donations they receive has been in decline. This has had a huge impact on the people who rely on the care and support that charities provide.
Silver Steps is an opportunity for Silver to come together and help charities get back on their feet, one step at a time.
How you can help
We’ll be documenting our efforts here and on our social channels, so be sure to follow our journey and support Team Silver by leaving messages of support and donating anything you can to some wonderful charities.
Thanks for your support. On we go!
