Relec Electronics’ Continued Charity Support
12 July 2019
Relec Electronics are outstanding in their industry field. They are also a continual supporter of charitable causes around the country.
Their own nominated charity is The Brain Tumour Charity for whom they have completed two incredible adventures. Last year, Sales Director John Stone raised over £10,000 in the Big Relec Bike Ride, cycling 1100 miles from John O’Groats to Land’s End. This year, Managing Director Peter Lappin undertook the Big Relec Desert Walk where he was pushed to his limits on a 5-day 100km trek across the Sahara (pictured), raising £6000.
More recently, Relec were a vital sponsor and supporter of the Crazy Jean’s Soapbox Race held in Tunbridge Wells in Kent. They sponsored one of 40 karts as well as all the t-shirts for the staff and crew and the helmets for the drivers and co-drivers. Peter Lappin visited the race to watch the Relec logo travel at speed throughout the day. The kart drivers would doubtless have loved some of Relec’s electronics expertise to make their karts go even faster! Thanks to the support of brilliant sponsors like Relec, the event raised over £30,000 for local charities, Taylor-Made Dreams and Hospice in the Weald.
The contribution Relec makes to charity is massively appreciated by those they support. Geraldine Pipping, Director of Fundraiser at The Brain Tumour Charity, says, “We receive no government funding, so we rely 100 per cent on fundraising, donations and gifts in wills. It’s only through the efforts of people and companies like Relec, that we can change those shocking statistics and bring hope to the 11,000 people who are diagnosed with a brain tumour this year.”.
Inspiring and amazing efforts from the team at Relec. Hopefully they will motivate other companies to make similar contributions. What will they undertake next? Watch this space…
