Pool at Acorns

Acorn’s pool – vital facility for sick children

Our team of elite consultants and trainers here at Global Integration can lay claim to a certain degree of sporting prowess, even boasting an ex Olympian in our midst.

So it’s not entirely surprising to learn that matrix management specialist Phil Stockbridge is taking to the streets for his latest challenge: running  a half marathon – the BUPA Great Birmingham Run – on the 23rd October (2011)  in aid of Acorns Children’s Hospice.

Hospices provide invaluable care and respite, and Acorns provides care and support specifically for children and young people who have life limiting or life threatening conditions, and provides vital support for all the family. It costs £750 per day (around $1200 at today’s rates) for each child’s care, over 70% of which comes from community initiatives like Phil’s run.

(For those of us who know and love Phil, it’s somewhat  less surprising to note that this is the chosen charity of Burton Rugby Club, to which Phil offers keen support.)

If you’d like to sponsor him for this great cause, you can do so on his Just Giving page, here: http://www.justgiving.com/PhilStockbridge

We’ll let you know how he gets on.
