Over the past 18 months, the dedicated team at Stockport Homes Group has been taking on a broad range of fundraising activities helping to raise funds to help us continue our work. This has included abseiling, jumping out of planes, running and walking challenges and more!

Ed, a team colleague at SHG decided to create his own unique fundraiser as part of housing provider’s charity support by running a staggering 500k in 12 months during 2023!

He has astonishingly completed his challenge FOUR MONTHS early, he’s also raised over £700!

We asked Ed to share with us what inspired him to take on such a big challenge, here Ed comments;

Having recently become a father, this cause really spoke to me. What would happen if… My original aim was to raise £500 but I’m hoping to double that total by the end of the year. It was the thought of my son who kept me going when I didn’t want to run anymore, which is why it was fitting that he crossed the final finish line with me!
