June Charity Challenge 2018

Walking for Warren Road

Did you know the average person in the UK only walks around half a mile per day!! That’s around 2,000 steps per day! Our lovely Caroline is setting herself the challenge of walking 200 miles in June! It may not sound a lot to some, but it’ll mean doing over 12,000 steps a day and around 7 miles per day. Caroline is hoping people will sponsor her and her aim is to raise enough money to have a Defibrillator fitted at Warren Road School. With over 700 students, over 700 parents, a huge number of staff and lots of weekly clubs, this is something very important to our local school. The cost is roughly £600, so it is a tall order!

April Charity Challenge 2018

Running for Jackie

This month is a very personal cause for us at Qlic and especially for Ben. In his own words ‘In early 2018 Jackie Caspary was diagnosed with cancer.  Jackie was the operations director at Premier Choice Telecom. We sat opposite each other for all of Jackie’s time at Premier Choice. Since Jackie started working with me she had a tickling cough which wouldn’t go away, after some nagging Jackie went to the doctors and shortly after was diagnosed. Jackie sadly stopped work in March this year due to her continuing cancer treatment. Jackie has been an inspiration to all at Premier and personally helped me to develop in my role. She will be missed at Premier.’

Raising Money For Charities Supporting The Vulnerable During Covid-19

During this unprecedented time, we think it’s important to give back to those in need. That is why Qlic has recently completed their fundraiser and donation scheme to support those charities helping the vulnerable!

Raising Money For Charities Supporting The Vulnerable During Covid-19

Throughout the months of April and May, Qlic created a donation scheme where 5% of all project management revenue would be collated and put towards raising money for those charities supporting the vulnerable during Covid-19! As well as this, Qlic created their own fundraiser for the team to collectively complete 1,500km in just 14 days! We are delighted to say that Qlic has raised a grand total of £2,400, which we’ll be splitting equally between three outstanding organisations!!

Our three chosen organisations and a bit about how they’re helping the vulnerable and how Covid-19 has affected them:

  1. Action for Community Development – Serve a the lead organisation, in partnership with other members of Lewisham BAME Network (58 BAME lead organisations) in Lewisham we are providing: Freshly prepared hot African, Caribbean and Asian meals to older people twice a week about 200 registered so far. As well as, telephone befriending twice a week call to 38 frail elderly people mostly living alone. Weekly virtual wellbeing Group with 23 participant and increasing.
  2. Age UK Croydon – They have been quick to adapt the way we are supporting older, vulnerable people using our Helpline to take calls from people who are worried or who have questions about the support available.  They have set up a Food and Essentials Hub to deliver free food to those most in need, and they have set up a Companion Call Line to pair people with a telephone befriender to have a weekly friendly chat.  Their main challenge is how we continue to connect with older people through using different technology, especially considering the older people may have social distancing for a long time to come.
  3. Lambeth & Southwark Mind – Are an independent mental health charity in South London and are seeing a massive cut in income due to our fundraising events being cancelled and retail income suspended. They support people not just with mental health issues, but specifically the most excluded groups engaging with mental health services. They work with people suffering from Hearing Voices (who find it difficult to engage with video conferencing), people from the black community who regularly under-engage with regular services. They also run a Mental Health Information Line for south London residents, a completely free psychotherapy clinic, peer support groups for the most excluded and hard to reach members of society.

Running Time

Matt and Dan will be taking on a 5k run around Danson Park, passing the lake, Danson House and going through the woods. A 2 lap course which is majority on tarmac path but a gravel path and woodland track does break this up.

Carly Heart Trust And Warren Road School

We feel that it is important that all schools should have lifesaving defibrillators available at all times.
Defibrillators combined with trained CPR within 3-5 minutes increase the survival rate from 6% to 74%, currently 270 children die every year at school from sudden cardiac arrest, approximately 30,000 out of hospital cardiac arrests happen every year and Without immediate treatment, 90-95% of Sudden Cardiac Arrest victims will die.
12 people under the age of 35 die every week due to sudden cardiac arrest in the UK. This is why we believe our mission is so important within communities.

Walking for Warren Road

Did you know the average person in the UK only walks around half a mile per day!! That’s around 2,000 steps per day! Our lovely Caroline is setting herself the challenge of walking 200 miles in June! It may not sound a lot to some, but it’ll mean doing over 12,000 steps a day and around 7 miles per day. Caroline is hoping people will sponsor her and her aim is to raise enough money to have a Defibrillator fitted at Warren Road School. With over 700 students, over 700 parents, a huge number of staff and lots of weekly clubs, this is something very important to our local school. The cost is roughly £600, so it is a tall order!

Cancer Research

Our vision is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. Our new strategy will give us the foundations we need to tackle the challenges ahead.

Running for Jackie

This month is a very personal cause for us at Premier and especially for Ben. In his own words ‘In early 2018 Jackie Caspary was diagnosed with cancer.  Jackie was the operations director at Premier Choice Telecom. We sat opposite each other for all of Jackie’s time at Premier Choice. Since Jackie started working with me she had a tickling cough which wouldn’t go away, after some nagging Jackie went to the doctors and shortly after was diagnosed. Jackie sadly stopped work in March this year due to her continuing cancer treatment. Jackie has been an inspiration to all at Premier and personally helped me to develop in my role. She will be missed at Premier.’

Every year, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem. But hundreds of thousands of people are still struggling. We believe no-one should have to face a mental health problem alone. We’ll listen, give you support and advice, and fight your corner.
We provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. We campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding. We won’t give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets support and respect.
