Running for a cause

Vectra office’s in London and Paris united at Victoria Park to participate in a 5 km run in support of the Barnado’s charity. It is a common practice in the UK to support charities in a unique way. Individuals, companies choose a charity and raise funds by organizing a sporting event like runs under two categories (5 and 10 km) and ask among colleagues and friends to sponsor them by donations.

Participants of the run Vectra team were Aniko, Eva, Katarina C., Katarina R. and Savy. With great enthusiasm the team achieved their mission, and secured 619.74 against the target of 500. The proceeds of the event will benefit the Barnado’s charity.
