We are proud to have supported the County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust Charity MRI Appeal as our chosen charity for 2018.
Team Hewitts participated in a number of fundraising events throughout 2018 to raise support and sponsorships for the charity. In March, more than 20 of our staff joined in the Gung-Ho Challenge; a wet and muddy 5k assault course at Wynyard Hall. In September, a team of 4 completed the Black Sheep challenge, running a combined total of over 50 miles over a 3 hour period.
Our efforts have so far raised over £2,000 for the MRI Appeal, which was launched with the aim of bringing the latest state-of-the-art MRI scanning technology to the Darlington Memorial and Bishop Auckland Hospitals. The Appeal aims to raise £2.5million to fund the scanners.
