Nightride for George
May 25, 2017
Our very own Head of Lending, Dave Old, is taking on streets of London to raise money for George and the Giant Pledge - https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/GeorgeandtheGiantPledge.
George and the Giant Pledge was set up by Vicki and James Woodall, from Redhill, following their four year old boy, George, being diagnosed with cancer. In order to make something positive come out of this terrible ordeal, they are attempting to raise £1m in order to help The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity help other children in the same position as George.
Dave, who has two young sons himself, wants to support this charity and help the Woodall's reach their target. 'As a parent it's your worst nightmare to hear the kind of news the Woodall's did. Their reaction to this, to raise money for such a good cause that will dramatically improve the lives of children and their families in similar positions, is, quite frankly, amazing. The whole of Reigate are behind them and the Holmesdale Building Society is too!'
Watch this space over the coming months for more ways in which the Holmesdale will be supporting George!
