AGEAS INSURANCE STAFF TO WALK FOR CHARITY

AGEAS INSURANCE STAFF TO WALK FOR CHARITY

Staff at Ageas Insurance Ltd are organising a works night out at the Manchester Midnight Walk.

Six underwriters from the company’s base in Spring Gardens, Manchester, will join hundreds of other walkers in the moonlit 10km city centre stroll on Friday, April 26.

The walk is staged by St Ann’s Hospice, the firm’s chosen charity for two years, as part of Ageas’ national support for Hospice UK.

Employee Michelle Hamer, from Withington, took part in the walk in 2017. She said: “It’s an amazing atmosphere and we had so much fun and met lots of people from all walks of life.

“You don’t have to wear fancy dress and the event raises money for such a good cause. A friend is a patient at the hospice and they’ve given them their dignity back and provided help and support for family and friends.”

Colleague Andy Campbell dived into a shark tank at Sea Life Manchester last year as part of the group’s fundraising efforts.

Fellow Ageas staff Zoe Carr, Malcolm Etchells, Yvette Pitts and Sarah Butterworth are undertaking the walk, with Michelle’s friends Danielle Kelly and Ascia Alam.

The walk starts and ends at Manchester Cathedral and is sponsored by Betfred. Musical entertainment is from 9pm, three hours before the walk. Refreshments are available.
