When Covid-19 forced PCP employee Charlotte Bugg and her fiancé Sean Johnson to rearrange their wedding, the pair decided to make their ‘would-be-wedding month’ a one to remember by both running 100 kilometres for charity.
Charlotte is support officer for the Pioneering Care Partnership’s Option’s Project, which helps adults with physical and learning disabilities through providing activities that promote independence, choice and control.
Charlotte explained: “In May 2020, Sean and I were supposed to be getting married and venturing off for a dream honeymoon.
“Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, this had to be put on hold, so we thought we would keep ourselves busy and do something beneficial for our health whilst fundraising for the amazing Options Project at PCP, where I work – what better way than us both running 100k in a month!
“We’ve been genuinely overwhelmed by the support received and by everyone’s generosity, we’ve raised over £1,077!”.
PCP chief executive Carol Gaskarth said: “The range of fundraising activities our staff have been involved with over the past few weeks has been phenomenal. Options.”
