4com’s Isle of Wight Challenge – Ashley’s Birthday Bank



On Saturday 15th July, we’re sending nearly 70 members of staff to the Isle of Wight Challenge to raise up to £40,000 for Ashley’s Birthday Bank!

Ashley’s Birthday Bank are an incredible charity based in the Bournemouth, Poole & Christchurch area. They work entirely voluntarily, providing a vital service to families who find themselves going through a financially difficult time, or to those who have escaped domestic violence, neglect or human trafficking.

The money raised in the Isle of Wight Challenge will help support the charity’s ‘New Start’ project.  This project aims to provide essential household items i.e. fridge, bed, oven etc. to families who have escaped domestic violence, poverty or neglect, as they build their new life.

Nearly 70 members of 4Com staff are attempting to complete a circuit of the island by running 13.2 miles, cycling 31 miles and walking 22 miles, aiming to complete this entire challenge within 15 hours. We would love your support in this as we aim to raise up to £40,000 for this incredible charity!
