V Formation has put its best foot forward to raise vital funds for FareShare by completing a Lapland Challenge to collectively walk 2,298 miles – the distance from Nottingham to Lapland.
“We decided to banish the lockdown blues and get some fresh air into our lungs – while raising vital funds for FareShare,” explains V Director, Hilary Campton.
“We guessed Father Christmas might struggle for help from his elves and usual mini army of workers this year thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic, so we set ourselves the challenge of walking to Lapland – just a mere 2,298 miles from our offices in Nottingham – to give him a hand. ”
The Lapland Challenge kicked off on 18 November 2020. For every mile walked, V Formation gave 50 pence, and is thrilled to have made a £1,000 donation to FareShare.
“We’d like to say a huge thank you to all our clients, friends and family members for stepping up and stepping out to help us achieve our goal of reaching Lapland before Christmas. We couldn’t have done it without you!” Hilary says.
