The B2 team was out in force at the weekend to raise money for Alder Hey Children’s Hospital. Willing walkers – aged from 3 to 73 – set off from the West Shore at Llandudno to complete a walk along the coast, ending with a picnic on the beach. Over half the B2 team were joined by family and friends in the summer sun to enjoy the walk along Marine Drive surrounding the iconic Great Orme.
The fundraising Fun Day was the brainchild of Sales Administrator Rachel Walker and Leon Darbey, a Solutions Consultant, who work at B2’s North Wales offices in St Asaph and Deeside. Both Rachel and Leon, who each have young relatives receiving treatment at the hospital, nominated Alder Hey as B2’s Charity of the Year. Rachel’s seven-year-old son, Ryan (pictured), has spent time in the hospital with digestive problems, and Leon’s 3-year-old nephew, Finley, who lives in Abergele, is currently being treated for leukaemia.
“Ryan spent lots of time in Alder Hey as a toddler and we owe the doctors so much for helping to live a normal life now,” said Rachel, who lives in Shotton. “At B2, we’ve focussed on raising as much money for the hospital as possible, because it’s such a good cause.”
B2 has a tradition of supporting good causes and local events. In September they will be supporting GladFest, a family friendly festival with a literary twist for another year. In October, B2 will be returning to Llandudno– this time on four wheels – for the North Wales stage of the World Rally Championship. The company, which has offices at New Vision Business Park in St Asaph and on the Deeside Industrial Park, are Technology Partners for the Wales Rally team, for the fourth consecutive year. And they will be supporting the team around the clock from the start in Conwy on October 25 through to the ceremonial finish in central Llandudno on October 29.
