The Jensten Group Backs Helps For Heroes
The Jensten Group Backs Run 5, Donate 5, Nominate 5 Campaign
The outbreak of the Coronavirus and the subsequent lockdown has presented organisations with unprecedented challenges. Our treasured NHS has been forced to deal with a surge in demand for help in treating the physical effects of the virus, while businesses have had to manage the mental health issues associated with furloughing and the feelings of isolation that remote working can bring.
In order to try to overcome these problems, the Jensten Group is lending its support to the ‘Run 5, Donate 5, Nominate 5 Campaign’. Begun on Instagram it allows people to raise funds for our NHS heroes by pledging to undertake a 5km walk or run, to donate £5 to the NHS and to nominate 5 people to do the same. Since its launch on the 27th March on the Run for Heroes page, it has become a social media sensation, raised over £5m for the NHS and has helped disconnected people connect through a shared cause.
To show our support for this amazing idea, Jensten have pledged to double the amount of money raised by Group members undertaking the Challenge. Over a third of our 180 colleagues have already done so, including Jensten’s CEO Bob Darling, CFO Ed Hannan and Wholesale Managing Director Simon Taylor. The aim is to raise £1,000 for the NHS while encouraging action and interaction between team members.
